Fabulous breakfast and lunches. Homemade soups are terrific daily. Tom's sandwich of the day are hardy, tasteful delights. Capped off with excellent coffee, not your run of the mill coffee, and homemade deserts.

The service was good and friendly. The place was busy, always a good sign when eating somewhere new. The quiche with salad I had was delicious and I would definitely recommend the Uptown Cafe for lunch
