From the moment you walk in you get a fun vibe. It's a bit of old hippy with the vibe of love and we are all one :-) The food was great...we went looking specifically for biscuits and gravy and a good breakfast. Other reviews...More

The Sahara Cafe is very popular for good reason...good food at a good value. It was crowded on the Thursday morning when I took my son and his wife there, but we were seated quickly. I like the big windows all around the dining area...More

The Sahara Cafe is a busy little place with great food and a friendly atmosphere. Joyce is an excellent waitress and makes the rules! LOL. If you want to get in before it gets real busy, try before 9AM. If you are a Grateful Dead...More

You can't be disappointed going here. But go early, the line starts forming around 9am. The portions are large so come hungry. Also, bring cash. Credit cards aren't accepted.

Bland, average coffee in enormous mugs. They allowed very minimal substitutions on their standard fare. We had the Philly cheesesteak omelette, and the spinach and feta omelette. Good size portions. The ingredients appeared to be canned vegetables. Very pleasant, quick service.More

seriously doubt it if you are planning off season travel it probably wouldnt be a problem but during high season it is shoulder to shoulder with long lines waiting.
