En route to view the grounds of Sanford University, we popped into this the Mayfield Bakery & Cafe for lunch. The service was superb and food very tasty albeit extremely expensive.

The place is pretty expensive for lunch. The bread brought out is good. The burger is decent but has nothing on it. There is not much to the cafe. More of a business place to eat in the shopping center.

Was one of my favorites for a long time. They know how to cook fish. Dinner is better and more interesting than lunches.

My wife and I stopped here for a quick bite before for an early evening event. Easy to get a table, the service was very good, and the food (we both had a BLT sandwich and salad) was good. Recommended.

Lively and great friendly staff. Our waitress is originally from Michigan and was friendly yet professional. The food esp the bread is wonderful. The grass fed burger was amazing!
