Yes, this place is packed, especially in the mornings, but for good reason - it's GOOD! The wait is usually manageable anyway, plus there's an outdoor area where you can sit/stand to wait when it's nice out. When you are seated, each person at the table is given their own cinnamon roll (like how chips and salsa are customary when... More

I took my family to this restaurant and it was extremely good! I have been to this business on several other occasions and it has never let me down. As the other commenters have said, the homemade (free) cinnamon rolls are very fresh and tasty. As soon as you sit down to the table, the wait staff give you the... More

Neighborhood Cafe offers a small home-town restaurant feel. Our family loves ordering off the breakfast menu all day long. They bring cinnamon rolls at the end of our meal! Yum!

I live in the area & this place is the real deal. If you like old fashioned comfort food, diner style fare, then look no further!! It reminds my husband of an old truck stop diner he used to go to a lot as a child. They bring you cinnamon rolls as soon as you sit down......this is the reason... More

We attended a Sunday brunch. Get there early, because there is a waiting line. The brunch was terrific, many selections.

Always a good crowd every time I've eaten here. The best cinnamon rolls around and everyone customer gets one for free! I've only had their breakfast, but everything I've had is great! It's in an old historic type building, so don't expect modern and roomy but it's part of the homestyle feel.

Everyone is given the best cinnamon roll when you arrive, for free. The food is fabulous and generous. All friends and family that we have taken there request a repeat visit.
