“C'est unique!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Different diner experience awaits at Russell's. On a rainy morning, my husband and I decided to try Russells for breakfast. We are locals who, having basically ignored this cafe for years, are now realizing its delights. The rich red walls and cozy booths are background to unexpected chandeliers, reproductions of famous European art and delightful music.
Mornings feel special at Russels. Gentlemanly waiters serve buttery hash browns alongside exceptional omelets. Too much food, but they also offer a wonderful lite breakfast which is just smaller portions of eggs, those hash browns and either bacon or sausage (get the sausage). In addition to normal toast choices, you can also order a bagel.
Took 6 family members recently and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Hard to please group, so that's a good recommendation.
Have noticed a sign for new ownership. Hopefully, it will all stay the same!

“Yummy breakfast and lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Russell's food and service are excellent. Our breakfast was delicious and delivered promptly. What makes it special; however, are the cute little chandeliers above every table and the famous art reproductions on all of the walls. It was a fun experience!

“good breakfast.”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Got a breakfast wrap. I thought it was overpriced a bit. Since there are a few other places, will try other places also. But a good atmosphere if you are going with friends or with families. Tables a bit small.
