The corned beef hash was fantastic!!!! And, our server was exceptional (ask for Caleb). If you are a breakfast person, you will not be disappointed

The Hudson Cafe has great portions for breakfast. The omelettes were huge, fluffy and packed with various ingredients depending on what you order. The toast was also good. Arrive early, as it's always packed. The wait is well worth it.

Went with three teenagers, even they couldn't finish those! They're the size of semi truck tires and so good. The adults had Huevos Rancheros and that was good. I do not recommend the Mocha Latte. Straight up powdered hot chocolate in a diner sized coffee...More
