We went for breakfast on Sunday at noon. Grand Central Cafe was extremely busy and there was a long wait. I would suggest planning ahead and going to breakfast closer to when Grand Central Cafe opens at 8:00 AM. The staff is courteous, friendly, knowledgeable...More

I ordered the bacon omelette. It was fabulous! It came with a mountain of yummy applewood bacon (I almost couldn’t eat all the bacon, which is saying a lot)! Service was also most hospitable! Definitely the best breakfast in these parts!
