I went here expecting a really good meal because so many people had told me how good it was. But the food was mediocre. Could have cooked it better myself at home.

This place is in a very old building. Place was busy but seated quickly. Quick and friendly service. Breakfast was great...Not greasy and fast. Quality bacon and breakfast drinks from the bar. All 4 of us said we would go back again.

We love Alfred's for Sunday breakfast. It has a beautiful bar, but plenty of "family" room. The crab omelets are delicious and my personal favorite. Combined with their great mimosas, it is the perfect start to a Sunday. The owner is a friendly guy who...More

I'd go again, but I am not in any hurry. Portions were adequate, food was hot, but nothing to write home about.
