Success! Thanks for posting your review of Crest Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

Food is OK, Wait Staff is Rude

We were interested in trying a new place for breakfast one Sunday morning, and decided on Crest Cafe. They were very busy and recommended that we sit at the counter by the front door, as the wait would be over 40 minutes. BIG MISTAKE! The waitress was too busy serving her tables and seemingly appeared to forget (or not care) that we were also customers and deserved equal respect. She forgot half our order and then ap... view more
