I visit this establishment "often" maybe once a week as I am a resident in the area. EVERYTIME I come into this cafe it's ALWAYS something like EVERYTIME! It doesn't matter what I order off of the menu- for myself and or my family or the time of day. The employees are NASTY AND RUDE and so is the OWNER(s) especially THE MAN! I must agree with another review that "He is a dick and probably a racist!" I would NEVER EVER EVER come back to this establishment not even for a tube of cream cheese!!!! The employees are IGNORANT too as if they woke up on the wrong side of the bed!!! The way that they operate is even questionable no wheel chair access, no traditional signs to acknowledge they are open, NO business hours signs oh sorry (hand written). The food is BLAND and so are the employees and management! Stay far away from this place!!! Speaking to management is like speaking to a brick wall- he go back in forth with CUSTOMERS and dispute the accuracy of what a CUSTOMER who are the one(s) to keep this "thing" going has to say!!! I am surely pissed off and again would NEVER EVER patronize this place again!!! Oh in be aware that "It isn't a grocery store in they don't sell individual cream cheese" as per the manager the white guy who's sarcastically NASTY in can care less about customers!!!! ���� If you do want to order something so small as cream cheese even the amount is disputed from .50 to .75 lol..
Many years ago from 1969 thru 1971, in Essex, MD, I ran my own little 5 stool & 3 booth diner. I did so very well with all the very best foods and the BEST coffee there is. People from the city and truckers off Rt. 40 would travel the distance for my burgers and coffee. And I served the last 10 cent cup in the city and county. I would love to have, in my house, The Pfefferkorn Coffee, here in central New York State.
great place to having a break with friends,The restaurant seemed full but not crowded and the music added a great touch.they have perfect chef's with them,they are best with their homemade desserts.I love that deal.I usually take this deal with coffee. but one thing that management should work on it,sometimes their staff are little rude with their behavior and that's not a good thing..........anyhow i enjoyed every time surely recommended.
I love to enjoy a cup of coffee from time to time. And whenever the need arises, I take time to visit this shop and enjoy their coffee. The pastries are good as well.
This place is much overrated. The food portion seems to have gotten smaller over the years, and the quality of the food fluctuated from one time to the next. It also didn’t help their chain’s image by having a condescending manager working in the lobby on Tuesday before noon. She accomplished by making the customer pick up the tab for a mistake they made, but they lost the vote of their customer.
As someone who considers Italian food to be comfort food, this is a go to spot for Sunday dinner entrees like chicken parmigiana, lasagna and manicotti. The interior has been nicely renovated in recent years. Give a little extra time to find parking.
They are the place where I get the fuel of my life. They have amazing coffee and I am not fooling, they truly have one of the tastiest and satisfying coffees in here.
high prices-food is average-small portions service is okay
I was a die hard Miss Shirley's fan when I moved to Baltimore. Die hard. Every weekend breakfast. Maybe I burned myself out? The only thing worth ordering here that tastes better than diner fare are the blueberry pancakes. Light, fluffy and packed with fresh berries, they are some of the best I've ever had. On the flip side, service is spotty, the managers are grumpy and the quality of the food does not match the price. I'll pay $18 dollars for a salad... at the Four Seasons, but not at a breakfast and lunch place on Cold Spring Road.
Meh. Meh. Meh. Sub par food, with the exception a of a few sandwiches. We are gluttons for punishment though and returned more than once since we live around the block. However, we drew the line on our last visit and probably won't be returning. I'm fine with hipster servers, but the older gentleman host/manager would not seat a party of five of us in an empty restaurant at 530 pm. He told us it would be a 45 minute wait. Since I waited tables for years, I'm well aware that he only had one server on and probably didn't want to put that server in the weeds (though there were only three tables in the restaurant). His attitude was the worst part unapologetic or even remotely interested in serving us. So off we went. Never to return. Also- don't order the fresh baked cookies, they never come. My husband ordered them three times (the last time being a joke) and each time the server either forgot to ring them in or they were out of cookie dough.
