They know how to fill a plate. Breakfast was fast and good. I ordered grits and most places it's a small bowl not here with the rest of the food couldn't finish it all.

Imagine Mayberry circa 1955. Yep! That's Frost Cafe. Where do you see fried bologna, fried pickles, old-fashioned milk shakes, and that kind of stuff on a menu? Certainly not at Denny's! If you're a ham lover, this is the place for you. They have fried ham, boiled ham, baked ham, and country ham on the menu. You can have it... More

The breakfast was good, price was reasonable. Coffee is a little strong for my taste, but was hot and fresh. Plates are good portions.

Breakfast is fine here. The building is perhaps more interesting than the food in my opinion. Generous menu and portions. Very inexpensive. Cash only.

We eat here at LEAST once a week, usually on the weekends, usually for breakfast. We sit at the counter, where the service, the company and the food is always great. We get to watch the cooks and servers work their magic!!

This is a good place to get a nice meal at reasonable prices. Atmosphere of an old fashioned diner with friendly waitresses. You can eat at the diner bar or in booths. Bring cash... they do not take credit cards or checks although they have an ATM available.

Although I appreciate the nostalgic decor, it's 2017 and time to take credit cards. I saw several people see the "Cash Only" sign, turn around and walk away. Luckily we had cash. The service is fast, efficient; however, the food is mediocre at best. Breakfast is probably your best bet since it seems to be what they do best. The... More

If you like greasy diners, this is the place for you. My husband loved it. For me it was just ok. It does have a retro diner feel. I had a patty melt. It was ok. The hamburger was very thin, but I ejoyed the rye bread it came on. My husband had some kind of combo breakfast with eggs,... More
