We have been coming to Village Cafe about 4 years. We average about once or twice a month, sometimes more. Yes, we have our favorite dishes, but I like to try different things. We have never been sorry we came here. The food is always...More

The Village Café is easy to overlook, small and inconspicuous, tucked away on a somewhat off-the-beaten-track 2 block triangle of small, ageing businesses. A retro throwback to a 50's diner, it's worth the efforts needed to locate the site and then hunt for parking. Their...More

Been here a few times now. They have a great breakfast for a reasonable price. Food is cooked well. It does get crowed on the weekends so go early or be prepared for a wait.

This place is always hopping. Great food, not too long of a wait and fast service. I've only eaten breakfast there but they do serve lunch also.

There is always a slight wait for a table or counter space, but it is worth the wait! The Village Cafe is a throwback to a time when diners were unique, delicious, and a good value. The menu is diverse and plentiful. I love the...More
