I ordered pancakes with fresh strawberries. What I expected was pancakes with fresh strawberry topping. What I got was 3 slices of micro thin cut strawberry baked into each pancake. I thought it was terrible. The strawberry had probably been fresh but after being fried it can certainly not be counted as "fresh strawberries" especially given the fact that it... More

Would try another place next time for breakfast. The food lacked love but the staff was nice so I can't be too harsh. It's probably time for an update to the menu and decor. I wish I had more to say other than make real home fries or hash browns, not the brick like thing I was given. I feel... More

Our extended family enjoyed a nice breakfast at the Light House Cafe in Medford. They have good service, lots of food options, solid food, and fairly inexpensive prices. We'll be back.

The hash browns were pretty good! But everything else was average or below average. The server was very sweet, but very rarely visited our table, even when we were two of the last four people in the place on a Sunday around 1pm. She only brought one coffee when we asked for two (which is fine -- maybe there was... More

Service is very good, and prices reasonable, but the breakfast was very average. Hash browns, molded into rectangular bricks, were dry and tasted re-heated. Omelette also seemed over-cooked and dry.

We stopped here for breakfast one morning while staying a few blocks away at the Hyatt. The staff was very nice, the place was clean and the food was delicious. Breakfast for 2 came to about $22. We would definitely go there again the next time we're in the area.

Enjoyed brunch here on Sunday. Very impressed with the people serving and the heaping servings of food. Had the french toast. Great. Family had the eggs, bacon and hash browns. Very nice and so gracious.

We went back Sunday for brunch and it was delicious! This is my third time there. I had a chicken parm sub last time and it was excellent. I had a Mexican Omelet with hash browns and a corn muffin on Sunday. Mom had scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns and wheat toast. Hubby had the French Toast Special with carmelized... More

We went to the Lighthouse at 20 High Street in Medford for lunch yesterday. Everything was excellent, and priced reasonably. They're open 7 am to 3 pm for breakfast and lunch.
