I was very pleased with the raspberry cookie. Great crunch and chewy texture. It made me smile. Had a cheese omelette. It was well cooked , but cheese choices were cheddar or mozzarella. Would have liked American. The French fries needed a second fry. Shame...More

The atmosphere was pretty and quiet. The sandwich was okay.. Nothing special.. The waitress was not friendly but she was attentive. So everything was average. You won't miss anything.

My wife and I go to Athan's in Brighton rather regularly, and that is usually in the hours between noon and five. There is always a smattering of folks around, perhaps having a few snacks and coffee, many of those using their computers--lots of college...More

And this place has it in spades. Truly a beautiful place to grab breakfast (or lunch, or dinner). The food itself is really tasty too. Everything is done very simply. Just good, fresh ingredients, and delicious flavor combinations. Also, the staff are awesome! They're always...More
