We topped by this cafe on our way to the park. It's a small building with a tiny parking lot.I ordered their Godfather omelette. It tasted ok. But their coffee was very light. The service was ok.

A very good breakfast place. I had eggs and toast with Ham. The best thing about this place is that its small and our waitress was a hoot.

After a recommendation from a friend, I tried this place. Portions were good, especially for the price you paid. I got plenty filled for a relatively low price. Will be back here again to try something else

Over the years they must have changed cooks because the chili dogs have gone way downhill. No toasted bun, chili was large chunk hamburger with no taste, and hot dog was just warm not hot. The hot turkey sandwich is not the same although I...More

We eat here, for breakfast, frequently and enjoy the food, especially the specials, very much. The wait staff is exceptional in their quality of service and friendliness. You can’t go wrong eating at The Lakeside!
