Yesterday for lunch my husband and I ate at Highlands Cafe for our first time. Greeting was prompt and friendly though hostess gave us our wrapped silverware on a table top that was soiled. Waitress was very friendly and efficient. We split a veggie omelette. I had asked about types of veggies in it, which were many. I should have... More

Food was average. It took them forever to bring up the fries after they served the hamburgers we ordered!My son who is generally an avid hamburger eater could not even finish his food

We have eaten here a few times for breakfast, and really enjoy it. The portions are large enough to get a few and share. The food is creative, and always fresh and always delicious! We have always had great service.

My daughter and I had lunch at Highlands Cafe on Sunday and the server, Kelly, was rude as soon as we sat down. She brought us menus and said the grill was closing at 2 p.m....it was 1:58 p.m. When she came back to the table we thought we would order coffee drinks, she said the barista was leaving but...

I've enjoyed the cafe's various hash plates for breakfast and lunch, but today I tried the new sweet potato corn cakes for lunch. Smooth and flavorful - perfect for a cold day. Plus great conversation with the owner about future plans.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. We occasionally stop in just before a movie. There are several sandwiches that I favor: the BLT&G (avocado BLT), Chicken salad, Tuna Salad and Chicken Avocado. Choice of bread-toasted or not. All sandwiches come with homemade Kettle Chips and pickle. I decline the chips and instead sub out for a fruit... More

I've been wanting to try the Highlands Cafe for some time now, and this week I had the opportunity to go twice in three days. The first time I went for lunch with my daughter. I had the BLT&G (the G is for guacamole) and it was excellent! She raved about her Black & Blue Burger as well. Both came... More

Love coming here for breakfast or brunch. Great drinks menu, Bloody Mary comes in a quart jar and has nice spice. Many of their other drinks are inventive and delicious! Weekdays are slower & quiet, weekends can get busy & loud, so plan accordingly. This is a popular place for families, so there may be kids.

My husband and I were out looking at houses in the area and decided to get lunch. We found Highlands Cafe. At first we didn't go in because it looked crowded but then the manager walked outside and said he had a table for 2 ready if we want it. We went inside and yes, it was crowded but we... More
