This little cafe is perfection! The decor changes seasonally and the ambiance is warm and welcoming. Every single meal I have ever eaten here has been outstanding. Their breakfasts are decadent and creative (love all of their eggs Benedict, their cheesy grits, funnel cake fries and waffles) and their lunches are excellent too. Even their drinks are something special. Service... More

The hollandaise sauce tastes real, which you don't always get. I have not had anything I didn't love. Wow, fresh made doughnuts. Funnel cake fries are... More

Never knew about this location until a friend invited me for breakfast. Fast service with a smile. Great atmosphere! Anytime people stand and wait for a table without complaint, you know something is working!

I really enjoy this place. It is small but good. The Rachel Turkey on rye was very delicious and so are the chips. The atmosphere is friendly. They are usually busy for lunch and sometimes you have to wait. They do have a counter also. They recently did some redecorating with real trees and festive lighting inside. I like it.

My daughter and I recently dined for breakfast at Cafe 72. Cute little cafe, tastefully decorated, pleasant efficient staff and good food. Menu always has unique daily specials. We arrive near opening as seating fills up fast. But if you do have to wait for table, there is coffee/tea and hot water set up outside for patrons. Great little cafe.

Delicious breakfasts, not the usual specials, very different, waiters, waitresses and staff very friendly and accommodating. More inviting now that it has been remodeled.
