“Very disappointing. Cold food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

Decided to try something new.

Seated quickly, friendly service.

Waited forever for food to arrive. Came out in five deliveries, most of which were cold when we got them.

Came here based on positive reviews but very disappointed. After 25 years in business, Would have hoped they figured things out by now.

Prices reasonable, but no value if basic breakfast arrives piecemeal and is too cold to eat. Left hungry and frustrated.

“Nice local cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Tony's is a very friendly cafe that reminds you of a small town establishment. The owners know many of their customers. Large menu with breakfast all day as well as lunch specials. Food is very good and prices are reasonable. Would recommend their breakfast items and some of their ethnic cuisine. Would not go here for hamburgers. They are OK but there are better hamburger joints nearby.

“Great neighborhood diner - breakfast all day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is a cozy family run place with a very loyal following. Yummy breakfasts (served all day). It's my "go to" spot for a quick and pleasant breakfast. Nothing fancy, just good simple fare. A real throw-back in time.

“Care for brunch? Come to Tony's Cafe.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012

After hearing the hype of this place, we decided to try out this restaurant. And the restaurant lives up to its famous breakfast. DH had a plate of steak breakfast with muffin on the side. Though the steak is slightly dry, it is nicely seasoned. The over-easy eggs were heavenly and so was the english muffin. The pan-fried potato was alright.
It's a mom-and-pop restaurant. The owners multitask in different roles. Waiting time is kept to minimum. :-)
We will come back to try out other dishes.

“This is "Literally" my favorite place to eat breakfast in the entire world...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

I started coming to this place as a boy with my parents, I go now before any big event and anytime someone wants to meet for breakfast - we are going to Tony's. I order the Seafood omelet every time I go with a biscuit and side of gravy. It comes country potatoes. Does not matter how long it has been She always remembers what I order and asks how my wife and children are doing. I really have never been let down for the about 20 years I have been coming. The food and the people are amazing.
