The glowing reviews baffle me. Breakfast was just ok, and the coffee flavored water was just horrible. Service was quite slow. The place was pretty empty when I arrived, yet lots of tables were waiting to be cleared. I wouldn't go out of my way...More

Loved our breakfast at Gailey's. I had a skillet that was excellent. My grandson's waffles looked good as did my wife's bacon and eggs. Only downside was the biscuits and gravy was cold but replaced upon request. I'll be back.

Great spot to go day or night especially if you have a group that can't decide on breakfast or lunch - something for everyone!

Wife and I stopped in here for breakfast on the way home from Arizona. A bit taken back to see a man playing a harp. But when we got down to breakfast we found it exceeded our expectations. I have pictured the cinnamon swirl French...More

Breakfast, lunch, whatever you appetite requires, you'll find it at Gailey's. What a breakfast! Right across the street from the Hotel Vandivort....two blue ribbon winners in downtown Springfield!
