Wonderful Place For Lunch - Very Friendly & Relaxing – Our office LOVE coming to this place for lunch on a regular basis. We have done so for many years. It is our favorite. Very conveniently located. Love their salmon dish, incredible yummy BBQ chicken salad and the zucchini bread. The place is great for people who have to be very careful with their diet due to health reasons or wish to have a healthy meal. Could really enjoy eating in their relaxed friendly atmosphere - a true lunch break from work. At lunch time, that place is always packed with people with friends and families enjoying themselves. It has a "home" feel to it. We never ever felt that we have to be "rushed" to eat and to move on out like some deli's when it is very busy. We all have experienced EXCELLENT friendly service every time we have eaten there.
We like this place so much that we also have gone there during the weekends with our own families and friends.
I'm always impressed of how people love coming there, besides ourselves. The waiters/waitresses & servers know some of the patrons by their first names and even know what their "regular" orders are. They are very kind and helpful to the older ones, those in wheelchairs and families with small children. Many times, I've witnessed small children love being there with their moms & grandparents or even I have seen dads with their little children spending quality time with them. Coogie's is definitely a WONDERFUL place for families!
It is nice to still have a GREAT neighborhood cafe where families and office workers could enjoy their meals with their fellow co-workers and friends.
Best in town – Great food!!! Nice parking. Great to just park w/o paying in SM. Upscale Dennys? Very family oriented.
Consistently Mediocre – I don't know how they do it, but the only thing I really like here is the zucchini bread that comes with some dishes. Other than that, the food is unfailingly average - never great, never terrible.
On the plus side, it is always clean and parties are seated promptly. They have a good-sized adjacent parking lot which on this side of town is quite a bonus.
Editorial Review – Like an upscale Denny's for the octogenarian and families-with-tykes set.
Great Salads! – I have been going for years with my husband and enjoy their salads and the zucchini bread that comes with the salad. The food is healthy for dining out...the vegetable that come with some meals are steamed rather than fried. I go primarly for breakfast or lunch and have enjoyed the healthy food.
Decent, but not great – I had a late lunch meeting here once. My asian chicken salad was good but not great; large though. The patio is nice and our waitress checked in often. Their iced tea wasn't bad. I would rather go elsewhere for similar food.
