I went with my husband for breakfast and thought it was just ok. The menu had everything you'd want for breakfast but it was just typical diner food. Service was very quick and friendly.

Years ago it was our first day of school tradition; now we take our grandson. In between, outdoor tables have been added and the menu has been updated. Strongest for breakfast when specials are particularly good. Forget the Hollandaise... Keep it simple and enjoy the...More

After not visiting Effie's for several years (previous stops had been for lunch or dinner), a friend and I had a delicious breakfast outside under an umbrella on a plain old Tuesday morning. The service was excellent, the menu sumptuous, the food exceptionally good, and...More
