Breakfast- reasonable priced - good service- food was served hot. Friendly - appears as at one time it may have been a Hollywood Diner.

Very slow service and very mediocre food. Keep searching for somewhere else. This place offers a promising menu but falls short of delivering flavorful or quality good. It was fairly in expensive.

We went here based on a recommendation from a local. We're glad we did. While the outside looks like a 50's diner, they don't try to do a hardcore reproduction on the inside, like to places in California I have visited. The food is good...hearty midwest diner fare. We had the "Cozy Mess" and French toast. The Cozy Mess in a combination of hash browns, sausage, bacon, green pepper with a couple of eggs on top, with a side of toast. I got the optional sausage gravy on top, which I highly recommend. The French toast was equally good. The place was busy, but the service was very friendly and attentive. About the only complaint is that the air conditioning was set a bit too cool, but there had been a large temperature change the evening before and it probably takes a while to adjust.More

My wife and I were visiting the area and we're looking for breakfast. I suggested Dunkin. She twisted my arm for Cozy Cafe. She is smarter than I am. Great food, world's best coffee, and great staff. We may go back this evening. It's that...good.More

First the cinnamon orange tea is great. The red and green Chile would make a great salsa for a New Mexican girl, but the flavors weren’t there for me. Had the biscuits and gravy. Was good. I don’t like sausage in my gravy, so it...was nice. The staff is friendly and the portions are big. Nice placeMore

Pizza and Graziano sausage patty on a Helen and Pat's bun were incredible. Server was helpful, friendly and attentive. The cleaning and safety procedures were good too. Save room for pie or a cinnamon roll!

had a burger and fries. The burger was delish. Can't remember the name of it, but it had onion rings and bacon on it. The fries were a little overdone but still good. Good service. Give it a try.

We were staying overnight in a nearby hotel and we ordered take out. The meals were ready in 15 minutes. The staff was very friendly and fast, the food was excellent. I had a BLT with side salad and my partner had a pulled pork...sandwich with fries, and we share chocolate cake for dessert. The food was hot and tasty, the cake was delicious.More
