We first went to Cafe M because we just couldn't bear the long wait at Bette's around the corner. We were so satisfied that now we always choose Cafe M when we are headed over for breakfast on Fourth St.

We came here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We were told the wait would be 20 min. & it was over an hour. Food was okay, but a little overpriced for what you get.

And I do like the fact that there is generally parking near by. On warm days they have a few outside tables, which is nice. The menu has some interesting combinations and the food comes quickly and hot off the grill. Coffee refills are plentiful...More

We had breakfast 2 or 3 times in the first year or so after M opened. It was very good if a little pricey. But when we tried it again recently, we found that it has apparently suffered the fate of nearly all eateries: costs...More
