The omelettes, hash browns, and crispy bacon were very good.

The staff was friendly and bubbly.

Would recommend

While we were walking around Spring Lake, we decided to try this place for lunch. While the prices for this place are very reasonable, the food is of questionable quality. The hamburgers fell apart pretty quickly due to substandard buns unable to contain the burgers. The fries and chips were substandard, and the mushroom omelet was so-so. The chicken tenders were mediocre. One redeeming quality was our server's efforts to try to ensure satisfaction. When the kitchen gave a cheeseburger that my dad didn't order, our server took it off the tab. For this, the place gets a higher 2, though we certainly will not be back.

W e hadn't been to Spring Lake in over six years and didn't know where to eat any more as several of the places we had been to were no longer open. We picked this only by chance. We were very not disappointed. The food was excellent. They also happened to have a nice Jazz Combo that night. BYOB just made an even better deal.

We came for lunch and the menu was great but the food was average. I had a tuna wrap and couldn't find or taste the tuna...lots of lettuce. The side of fruit I had tasted old. My friend ate only a few bites of her meal. Cafe was clean, waitress very nice and we had no wait time.

We go here all the time! Love the staff, especially one of the waitresses that always runs over to serve us and immediately knows my order (since I've obviously become an old lady and get the tilapia wrap every time)
The owner Ray is a sweetheart too and really helps out the community and always willing to support the kids.
My whole family loves the food, amazing fries, tilapia wrap, seared tuna wrap, pancakes, omelets, etc. We even went for dinner one night and that was delicious as well.
Basically try it!!!!
