I love the Toro Place Cafe especially for breakfast. It’s a small cozy place with limited parking. The food is always consistent with average prices. I usually order eggs with bacon and their home fries are the best

By all indications this was to be a good place mostly attractive to locals. It did not disappoint. The inside was decorated in a very unique manner. Food was good, service was better. Strongly recommend.

I have been eating here since I was in junior high. Although I have seen many changes to the café itself, the food has always been tasty and a good value.
