What happen in a one year time frame? Are there new owners, or did the general manager change out? I had two back-to-back visits last year where I fell in love with this place. The indoor seating is artistic with pops of color, unique ceiling lighting and great atmosphere. Outdoors has lots of seating under large Live Oak trees. It's... More

Each time I have the opportunity to leave my neighborhood for brunch elsewhere, this is the first place that I choose. Sometimes the wait is an issue, but it is so worth it!

I had high hopes for this place after reading reviews on here and Google. We arrived and had to wait about 15 min even though there were empty tables in the dining area. We finally sat down, ordered food and coffee, but never received the coffee. The popover was only okay, but the strawberry butter was pretty tasty. My food... More

One of our family's favorite places for breakfast. Great choices. Excellent staff. Wonderful play area for kids. Loads of beverage choices. A neighborhood gem hidden in a shopping area. Look for it you will be glad you did.

Okay, so I can finally recommend a restaurant for kids. They have a playground so the little ones can have some fun. I had eggs, sausage and cloud cakes which are their version of fluffier pancakes. I liked it all. The pancakes were still substantial. The sausage was very fresh tasting. After we asked for our check they asked us... More

Hard to believe that breakfast food quality can be just average, but that's the case based upon my first visit to The Dream Cafe. This is despite exceptional service from our waiter and the morning manager. I ordered Migas but expected something juicier and more flavorful. I got scrambled eggs on the dry side instead. My colleague fared a bit... More

I was asked to join a friend at this cute restaurant for lunch and I was certainly impressed with both the food and the service! I had the salad trio and each of the salads were delicious. There are two outdoor patio areas that are covered so they stay cool and large enough to accommodate quite a few tables. The... More

I found this place and decided to go there since it was one of the few I found with healthier options. I ate there for breakfast and it seemed to be a very popular place. I liked the atmosphere and the waitress was very nice and attentive. I would certainly eat here again.

The Dream Cafe is a funky joint tucked away in nightclub land. The decor was spiffy and the menu offerings were quite varied and interesting. The hits: Excellent offering of vegetarian items. The Global Dinner rocked our world. It was delicious, and the portion size was spot on. The Mac & Cheese was outrageously good. I was hesitant, because it... More
