Travelling with family, including grandchildren. Looked up breakfast places on Trip Advisor and found Lester's. Great breakfast place and people could not have been more accommodating. Took seven of us out to patio and we had a delicious breakfast

OMW! My sunny side up eggs ordered super soft, were done perfectly! The home fries were perfect and the three sausages were so darn delicious! Great atmosphere and it was very busy but the service flowed smoothly. Reasonably priced and Highly recommend.

Arrived early and looked over the bakery counter and cake display, everything looked very fresh and nice sized portions. We were seated on the patio and the weather was beautiful. The server came several times asking for our orders, a little sooner than we were ready. Both breakfasts came quickly and the food was good, coffee also. We were having... More
