This is a smaller place with a lot of locals. They only had two servers and were very busy, they could have used more. The servers, however, were excellent and gave that little extra friendly touch. We both had the large platters. The food was great. I would definitely come again.

The food is always fresh. The servers are very friendly and accommodating! I have been there for breakfast with my family and lunch with my coworkers. I was never disappointed!

The place is really small. Not good if you want to stay and visit over coffee. Wait was a bit long. Food was good. Staff was friendly. If you're in a hurry to catch a quick home cooked breakfast, this is not your place

Great for breakfast anytime. can't beat the country style cooking, and won't break the bank either. Expect good, and get it.

As soon as you walked in The Cozy Cafe you feel the small town local cafe ambience. It is a small cafe with many locals having breakfast. Everyone was very friendly. Our party of 3 each had something different. One had pancakes, another had biscuits and gravy and I had the senior menu of eggs, hashbrowns, bacon (crispy), and toast.... More

This cafe was recommended to us for breakfast by a local but we were a bit disappointed that they did not have more healthy options. Our omelets were okay but we would have preferred egg white or egg beater options. The helpings were sizable and waitress was friendly.

This is the place for down home breakfast. The coffee is hot and keeps coming. Every thing that I have ordered for breakfast has been wonderful.
