Budget Cafe is nice place with typical Cafe/bistro atmosphere. Nice tables, very good food and cafe, very nice and very friendly people. We chose typical american breakfast - eggs, bacon, potatoes, omeletes, pancakes, waffles... everything was perfect

Nice folks & friendly service. Extensive menu of old-time favorites. Don't expect gourmet food here and you'll get a decent meal at a fair price.

Service was good....nice waitress. That's about it for the positives. Floor and walls were dirty and run down. Food was mediocre at best and not really worth the effort to eat it. I had the vegetarian lasagna. It was like a cheap frozen dinner. Would...More
