    Girls day out for Sunday Brunch before The Fox. Friendly staff, great food and reasonably priced for the variety. Not fancy, perfect ambience to enjoy time with friends or family. Special notes - pastries were from scratch and outstanding! Mimosas just as good. Love the employee enabled concept. Will be back!!

    We absolutely love Bloom Cafe and take guests there for Sunday Brunch whenever we get the chance. Their cinnamon role bread pudding is incredible and my family loves the egg station. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. This is the best Sunday brunch around.

    My husband and I wanted to try this place because it had very good reviews. We expected the food and service would be what the review commentary said. Well, what a surprise and mayor disappointment did I experience. When we arrived at our appointed reservation time, we walked to the girl at the register as there was no hostess to seat us. We gave our name and said we had a reservation. We were told we had to pay first and the young lady pointed to where the coffee was at. I drink hot tea and asked where the tea was at. I was told the tea was not included in the breakfast buffet; that would be extra. No problem, we gladly paid for the buffet and tea bag. We were told to go to table xx. We walked around the bend and found our table number. We then walked into the next room where the food items were displayed. I wasn’t impressed with the appearance of some of the food items. I ordered an omelette with tomatoes and cheese and asked that it be cooked well (meaning no runny eggs) this is how I always, always order my omelette everywhere I go. To my amazement, when I returned for the egg, it was more than well done (NOT PRESENTABLE). I took the plate added a few potatoes and went for the bread. There were only two bagels in the basket and no bread. I asked a young man for bread which he appeared to be a bit confused about what I was asking for. I told him there were to bagels in the basket and I just wanted toasted bread. He returned with one slice of bread. That’s all I got. I ate a little piece of the burnt omelette and a few pieces of potatoes with half the bread. My appetite was completely gone. I don’t generally write a review but I feel that strongly about the experience I had and I don’t feel I should let it go unsaid. I didn’t complain while I was there because I don’t like making an issue about things while others may be enjoying their meal. Lesson learned: I’ll never solely go on reviews alone.

    We went for Father’s Day brunch. The selection of food for $17+ was poor. The eggs were cold, the potatoes were cold, the omelette station served burnt eggs. Maybe it was an off day because the reviews I have read about this restaurant were all amazing. On a positive note the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    This place was absolutely amazing! I came here with my boyfriend and my mother for mother’s day. I made reservations for Sunday brunch several weeks prior to ensure we had a spot. The price for brunch of the cheapest of any places I could find! The food was so delicious and fresh. When things went empty, they quickly came to replenish it with more. They were so efficient with their reservation system that it wasn’t over crowded or loud. The ambience was super peaceful and calm! The staff was absolutely helpful and extremely kind! The lady working the front register was so sweet! The young man working the omelette station was also very nice and made me one awesome omelette! This place is so awesome! I highly highly recommend this place even if I’ve only been the one time! I will definitely be coming back to try their regular weekday menu and will also surely come back to have their brunch again! You have to try this place! The food, the service and the ambience was stellar!

    The food and variety of buffet was great there was a delay in getting our drinks and my niece has a dairy allergy and the first omelet they brought had dairy in it even though she specified that she had a dairy allergy. They did bring a second omelet out but if she hadn't asked again when they brought the first omelet to the table, she would have had a big problem!!!

    The restaurant was pretty cool in terms of its purpose. But the buffet wasn’t as robust as I expected and the eggs were pretty bland and cold. We make better food at home. But we like the concept of the restaurant. Might go back for a normal menu lunch to check that out.
