Stopped in from off I-5 for breakfast. The place needs a little fixing up on the outside. Inside is clean & updated. Booth & table seating. Arrived Sunday morning & seated promptly. Our drink came right away. Very good coffee with real cream. ($2.75) Ordered the Florentine scramble... eggs, sausage & spinach ($13) & a side of biscuits & gravy... More

The chicken fried steak was really good. Super friendly server and quick service. Chicken fried steak was cooked perfectly, the gravy was tasty, but I like shredded hash browns. I recommend this place.

This place has some fantastic food! I had a french toast that was covered in corn flakes and stuffed with peanut butter. It was one of the best things I've ever had! My wife had chicken fried steak. It was fantastic as well. The steak, hash browns and eggs were all cooked perfectly. I would highly suggest this place for... More

Came here for Breakfast and was great. I had bacon, sausage, eggs and hashbrowns, my Wife had Eggs Benedict. And very fine it was too, the sausage was some of the best I have had for breakfast and the eggs were cooked just the way I like em. Will be visiting again.

Friendly staff and great Breakfast and Lunch menu. If you're looking for a place to get good food, I would recommend stopping here. I found this by chance while on a road trip from Seattle and passing through. This place will be on my list of places to stop when I'm back in the area.

And maybe the best in town. Wife and I stopped for a late morning breakfast on the way to Eugene. Sign on building says in business 12 years but prior to that (from the looks of the building) it was obviously a restaurant before becoming the present establishment. For breakfast I had the house made corn beef hash (with 2... More

Do not be deceived by the plain exterior of this restaurant. Once inside you will find yourself attended to by professional servers and masterful cooks. Coffee cups are topped off promptly and the eggs and potatoes are divine. The Original Breakfast outshines flashy downtown establishments and national chains. Best Breakfast in Albany - check it out!

We hit many different restaurants for breakfast around the area on most Saturdays, but if it was up to me, we would come here more than all of the others for breakfast. The tour of Italy omelette is one of the best I have ever tasted and their daily breakfast specials are always top notch. When they get busy, they... More

Breakfast food was good. Service was just ok. The thing that bothered us was the restaurant seemed a bit outdated and dirty. I wasn't impressed with the appearance of the cooks. They didn't look to clean. The server never checked back with us to see if food was ok.
