Horrible, Horrible food and service - Tried this place right after it opened. From the weak coffee to the indifferent service this place was horrible!
And the food was awful, too.
Asked to have all the condiments removed from the tables, oil and vinegar are not needed for breakfast. Was told we have no other place to put them.
Well, I have other places to go for breakfast and I do. This place won't last a year in that spot. Here's hoping newer management will better serve the neighborhood
sucked! - I had the worst experience in my life! The waitress has an attitude and was very rude. The fact that me,my husband and my two young kids have to leave the restaurant was really really bad. We weren't treated nicely and it was a bad idea to even pick that restaurant.
Great place for breakfast - Cafe 79 diner has been on this corner since 1986 but has new ownership as of November 2009. The atmosphere has been updated nicely and the menu is thorough. We had a fun breakfast there.
