Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

We went to Simple on Sat. April 5, 2014 because we heard online that it was a good place for lunch. We waited until the recommended time of 1:30pm and they told us 30 min wait so we walked across the street to Grandma Vickie's. Boy, were we glad that we did. The prices were much better and the servce and food were stellar.Simple was not simple enough for us - homey diner with fresh food is better. I had a chicken wrap sandwich and expected some small with chips. Instead it was a large wrap about 3.5 inches in diameter with chunks of warm chicken and flavored well. I had kettle chips instead of fries. They also have shakes and malteds. They serve breakfast all day, too. I think that they close at 3pm. We were on a weekend getaway so it was a pleasure to visit such a quaint cafe without the yuppie trappings.

So... we tried to get into Simple (across the street) around 2:15 last Saturday. The wait was 45 min. and there really wasn't a place to stand (for party of 7), so we went across the street to Grandma Vickie's Cafe. They were closing at 3:00, and since we were meeting with out-of-town friends, we were concerned that we wouldn't be able to visit long enough. But we were seated and served extremely fast. The owner (Vickie) told us we were welcome to stay and visit after our meal was served. Two of us had b'fast dishes, and the rest had sandwiches. We were all very impressed - even when our expectations were low. I'm sure Simple is a great restaurant, be Grandma Vickie made us all very happy last Saturday!
