I’ve learned not to judge a restaurant by its outside looks, and I’m glad I didn’t here. This is a very small place (which takes only cash), but the service was impeccable and the food was simply delicious and very reasonably priced. Don’t miss this...More

The Borderline Cafe was a first time visit in Ohio by me. They only accept CASH. There is one liquor store that opens “around” 8 am that has an ATM & the waitress allowed me to eat & not worry about payment since the liquor...More

A great breakfast only place. I had their Philly Eggs Benedict and enjoyed it very much. This is a comfortable small restaurant best for couples. Any group larger than four might be difficult especially during their busier weekend hours. They are cash only so come...More

This is a little, popular neighborhood hang-out--we go all the time--with outstanding breakfast/brunch food. It's ridiculously popular on weekends and ridiculously busy; there will be waits.

I was invited here with a friend and was pleasantly surprised! This restaurant has your usual breakfast fare and the type of food that may be found in a southwest setting. The burrito for breakfast was out of my comfort zone but since this was...More

As the other reviews have noted, it's a small place, about 11 tables or so, and only a few seat 4 people. Unless you pick an odd day or time, you'll wait in line outside the door. And it's cash only. But the food ......More
