    The Starling is a casual cafe with patio seating and plenty of charm. A Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives location, the restaurant has for years been serving up impeccable french toast and lots of smiles. Read more

    Very nice granola, awful coffee.

    I won't go here anymore. Understaffed. Open tables but they won't seat you.

    All the food is great. The chairs are uncomfortable if you are a little overweight. Sit on a bench.

    Food is great. During the week the service is a little gruff.

    Missed out on the scones but everything was worth the wait. Even the disgruntled neighbor.

    Stuffed French toast is incredible, and the Bloody Mary is just spicy enough. Really great breakfast.

    The best in the area so far for crab cakes and eggs for breakfast. The place has a cute cafe feel to it inside. The stuffed French toast is a winner too!

    I get sucked in because it's cute and local but it is by far the most overrated eatery in the area. They run out of essential items early in the morn and most of their hot meals are bland & pricey.

    Worth the visit. Try the Tofu Scramble and come before noon during weekdays when it seems a tad less crowded.

    The Hawthorne pizette was delicious. The hickory bacon had good flavor. The split pea soup wasn't bad either.
