Have eaten here several times with my husband and this past weekend with another couple. We've always had great service with a friendly wait staff and the owner is usually in making his rounds. A very homey place. They had live music on Saturday evening while we were there. This is a place where you get big portions for little... More

4 of us visiting. Hungry. All 4 wanted something different from each other. Took a chance on the Fairgrounds Cafe. About 6:30 pm. Grilled cheese, BLT, and Club Sandwiches done perfect. Shepherds pie a little dry, but it was the last one they had of the special. A little butter solved that. Went back for breakfast 2 days later. Good... More

Excellent location and wonderful food, very inexpensive and large portions. Offers comfort foods that most restaurants don't serve.

In a half-full restaurant at 8:20 AM, we waited 1/2 hour for any attention. Coffee came 10 minutes later, and 15 minutes after that we were able to order. The food was fine, but no one should have to wait an hour for breakfast. This restaurant has over-expanded and under-hired. I know there is a dearth of help in the... More

Stopped in this morning for a bite to eat with a friend. A live band was playing, which was a pleasant surprise. The food came out shortly after we ordered, and was very delicious. The Greek omelet was a great way to start the day. The waitress was very courteous and welcoming. Nice little place to have breakfast.

So I'm sitting here waiting for my breakfast. Thinking this place is beautiful. And sweet. And man, i would like to come back. And when they brought the food out, and my boyfriends food looked great. He liked it. Mine however, home fries were burnt to the crisp. The English muffin was over toasted and was a little chewy. Not... More

This is a great little restaurant in the middle of a busy plaza. They have excellent service, great prices, and good food. It's definitely worth checking out.

Lunch at the Fairground Cafe was a most pleasant experience. I had breakfast for lunch...a huge vegetarian breakfast burrito with scrumptious home fries. My hubby had all he could do to finish his fried clam dinner, also scrumptious and our friend agreed we would not need another meal today. Right off I 295 so if you are own your way... More
