The building looks like a old barn, and not that well maintained. Inside, the atmosphere is a bustling, dish-clanking, old-style restaurant. We've been for breakfast several times, and it can get really crowded. But, they do server you quickly and move you out of there as soon as you're done. Not the friendliest service, but quick and efficient. We keep... More

This is a good restaurant to go for comfort food. Everything we had was served quickly, was tasty and were good portions. The servers are all pleasant and effecient. They put a lot of people in there but it's acceptable in this Red Barn Hamburger restaurant conversion. We had absolutely no complaints about the coffee (and I'm picky) anything being... More

Had the ground beef/spinach/sour cream omelette but it wasn't very flavorful. Coffee is not good here either. Wheat toast and hash browns were pretty good and the servers/owners are nice.

We've been frequenting Bill of Fare for years, are always greeted and seated with a smile, and happy with consistently solid, great tasting food that arrives in what seems like scant minutes after an order is placed.

perfect eggs and bacon and the potatoes are to die for. Strawberry waffles are good too! Packed on the weekends, be prepared to wait unless you get there super early.

After being in the neighborhood for almost forty years, we finally tried this place. Wow. After visiting on Sundays 6 August and 13 August 2006, we're absolutely hooked. Their honey wheat pancakes, omelettes and benedicts (turkey & vegetarian) are fantastic. Some unique options for the omelettes are available: crab, tofu, zucchini, etc. The tofu omelette was surprisingly excellent. We're going... More
