Bill's is a nice family cafe. Good food and service. There only open for breakfast and lunch. Not too expensive and a nice selection of food. Weekends sometimes have a wait before being seated, but it’s worth the wait.

Three of us went to breakfast on a Sunday morning. Twenty minute wait but was worth it. Large portions, attentive waitstaff and the best homemade sausage I've ever had. Free coffee in the waiting area. Would have gone back if we had found it sooner....More

A clean well run casual restaurant serving great breakfast and great lunches. Both indoor and outdoor seating. Reminds me of what restaurants were like 40 years ago in that its kind of a fancy coffee shop.
