If you are on a hurry, this place is not to go. Laid back attitude reflected in the no cell phone sign. I have been going here for 16 years and never had a bad experience. Excellent coffee to appreciate while waiting for food. Scrambles and burritos are my favorites. Pancakes are large and my child loves them

The no sweat café lives up to it's name when worrying about speed of service. It is not a place to go if you have limited time. But the food is good, often simple, but reliable. Cost effective, quaint and nice atmosphere. Only open for breakfast and lunch.

To be fair, we were warned by the locals that the service was slow. BUT, we waited 1 hour and 20 minutes for our food. That's got to be a record. The food was good and the atmosphere is nice.

This small cafe looked and felt so good as I entered ... what could go wrong? Well ... waiting an hour for food is one thing. Forty minutes after I'd placed my order, when the customers seated 3 minutes before had finished eating and those seated after me were getting their food, I asked my server how long till I... More

If I'm going to have breakfast I want a good breakfast with good strong coffee! The No Sweat Cafe served my favorite coffee (Montana Coffee Traders) and was a great spot for a hearty breakfast. I had a simple fruit bowl because we've been eating heavy the last couple of evenings and their fruit bowl was REALLY NICE- pineapple, ripe... More

I'm still amazed that people line up for okay food at a place that treats its customers like an afterthought. Snooty, slow, and slothful.

Locals love it. Maybe if the staff recognize you you get quicker service. I just order toast and coffee. Hard to put too much salt on coffee. Otherwise, the food is ordinary with cutsie titles. And often too salty.
