We frequent the Bill of Fare at least twice a month and it never disappoints! They have a variety of omelets and breakfast dishes including french toast, pancakes, fried rice, etc.! They have alot of Hawaiian breakfast dishes too! The portions are large and they fill their omelets with alot of filling and not alot of fluff (like other places... More

In town for business and had a fantastic breakfast this morning at Bill of Fare. Read that they were known for their omelettes and they weren't kidding. Got a egg white, tomato, wiss and avocado omelette and it was amazing (and BIG!). Decor is open and interesting and the service was quick and friendly. Would definitely recommend and definitely go...

1st time at this restaurant's new location on a Saturday mid-morning. Very busy and extremely noisy and cramped seating. Had about a 15 minute wait to get seated and another 20 minutes to get our food. Food was ok. Service and pricing was about average. My recommendation is to visit this restaurant on a weekday mid morning and avoid the... More

This is the first time i have been back since they moved out from behind a gas station. The space is about 3 times larger, and the food is even better than i remember. I have been coming to Bill of Fare for almost 30 years and for me it is the only place for an omelette. OF all the... More

I'm on a life-long quest to find the world's greatest breakfast burrito. I gave this one a 2 out of 5: It's just a very large, somewhat dry, omlet wrapped with a tortilla. The home fries were very good. Service was prompt - we had food less than five minutes after placing the order. The staff was incredibly friendly. Overall,... More

Extensive breakfast menu; Asian touches in dinner menu. Always busy but service is quick. I had tofu with pork today and it was quite good. Ample portions.

Well the omelets are still good, but after the move to down the block I think they lost something. I had the scrambled eggs (good) home fries (okay) and biscuits and gravy (weird taste and not good biscuits). The coffee was good and they sure didn't let the level get below half before they refilled it. All in all, not... More

Was here and had breakfast. It was awesome. Weekends are busy and weekdays the wait time is not long. The servers are awesome and my personal experience was great

Two friends and I ate at Bill of Fare on a Thursday around 11:00 am. The service was great. The food came quickly and was delicious. We had French toast, pancakes, and omelettes! I highly recommend this "hole in the wall" local joint!
