We went in for lunch today at 2.30. They close at 3pm, but not once did we felt rushed. The food was delicious and the people there are really nice!

I had breakfast at Third Coast Café with three friends after we hiked at Coffee Creek Preserve so needless to say we were hungry. The café is simply but vibrantly decorated with nice windows that let the natural light in. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu items and ingredients and very helpful. It seemed like it took a... More

This restaurant offers breakfast and luncheon meals. The organic offerings are excellent! The food is delicious and well presented. Each plate is usually garnished with seasonal fruit. The atmosphere is homey. There is a play corner with children's toys, puzzles, coloring items, and child sized seating/tables.

Our family dines here once or twice a month, mostly for breakfast. We have two picky children and a vegetarian in our group and everybody seems to be satisfied when dining here. There is a variety of menu options from which to choose including farm to fork organic food and even bison. We will continue coming here.

Stopped in to grab a coffee and quick breakfast for my commute. I ordered the Commuter Breakfast Sandwich to go. It's basically bacon, egg, and cheese on toasted bread. I sat for 15 minutes at the counter waiting for what looked like and omelette with bacon bits and cheese on greasy, grilled bread. The sandwich was $6.95 and given to... More

Third Coast is one of my favorite local restaurants! The menu is completely diverse and everything is absolutely delicious. I often meet clients there for breakfast or lunch meetings, and it is cozy and fun enough to do the same with friends and family. The freshly squeezed orange juice is the best I've ever had! Dave (the owner) is a... More

The food, atmosphere and service is top notch but beware when the bill comes you'll be paying a hefty price for simple, easy & everyday food! We got pancakes, waffle, latte, coffee and a side of bacon (2 pieces). I spilled my syrup and when we got the bill we were charged .50c for another cup. When the bill came... More

We had a party of eight and we were seated immediately, and our waitress was a friendly, energetic, ray of sunshine. Everyone in our party agreed that our breakfast was delicious. Even the toast was a nutty treat!
