Mr Pink doesn't think I should give 'em a tip but why not. It was fantastic.
Yummy Breakfast, Huge Portions – Huge portions! Just went here last Saturday and it was pretty good. I thought the breakfast I ordered said 2 eggs, potatoes and sausages or bacon. When it came, I was shocked at the amount of food... not to mention there were 5 sausages! I could only eat 4 lol. I should've gotten the smaller breakfast that my boyfriend ordered... the business breakfast (something like that)... still pretty good sized-portion. My eggs were scrambled and cooked just right... not soggy and not overly done. The potatoes were good except I don't like onions or green peppers so I had to fork those out... luckily, the onions and green peppers weren't overwhelmingly mixed in. We also ordered a biscuit with gravy that was okay... that came out to be over $5 because we had asked for gravy on it... okayyyyy ONE biscuit with gravy on it... $5?? True, it's a huge biscuit, but come on. Anyway, my breakfast was yummy and I would definitely go back here to try the other breakfast foods they have. Our waitress seemed a bit nervous to me, but she was attentive overall except for the beginning when she brought me an orange juice instead of an apple juice. Guess they sound the same lol. She corrected it and didn't charge us for the OJ so that was okay by me. This place isn't fancy at all, but I liked it for some yummy afternoon breakfast.
They take cards... I know because I paid with one. =) Had it been cash only, that would have totally sucked!
Citysearch Editorial Review – Made famous in the opening scene of "Reservoir Dogs" (you know, when Steve Buscemi explains why he doesn't tip?), this throwback coffee shop serves up hearty eats in an old timey atmosphere. Grab a seat at the counter and gaze into the rotating pie and beverage cooler, snag a table by a floral-curtained window, or settle for the covered patio enclosed by trellises. Knick-knacks, ancient framed paintings and faux flowers atop every table are reminiscent of grandma's place--a cozy hodge podge where comfort food just tastes better. The menu is expansive but breakfast is the focus with giant omelets, steak and eggs, corned beef hash and fluffy, mile-high biscuits served with thick country gravy. The prices aren't exactly a bargain, but you'll get enough food to fill you up for a good part of the day. In addition to the greasy spoon standards, you'll find a few Mexican dishes like huevos rancheros, machaca and enchiladas. Lunch options also include classics like burgers, tuna melts, club sandwiches and BLTs. Of course, this wouldn't be a true coffee shop without the pie; apple and pumpkin are usually on the menu.
I've been to this place only once and that was enough. It is really loud in here and waitress are not really helpful. I was surprised by the prices way too much for these days I mean $14 for an omelett and forget about the coffee thats about $3. Then time to pay I reach to my wallet and the waitress says "oh we only take cash" ok... then she tells me theres an ATM across the street. Hello Im not crossing eagle rock Blvd just to pay this lousy restaurant nothing. I just took the coffee and thats it oh and forget about the receipt too!! they wont give it to you!!
Really bad experience. There are better places on Eagle Rock/ Highland Park just look around
Put up with the service and eat the food. – Okay, the service can be lackluster at times, let's just get that right out of the way. Do you go some place FOR the service? No. You go for the food. The food is always good, most of the time, great! Some complained about 2.00 dollars for coffee? Oh woe is me! 1.50-2.00 is STANDARD for coffee at any restaurant.
I recommend Jose's Special. Get the biscuit for your bread choice and you basically get biscuits and gravy, homefries, eggs and sausage for 7 bucks. That's a good deal anyway you spin it.
And why on earth does it say "CLOSED" in the title for this page? The place isn't closed.
Three strikes and you're out! – I moved to Eagle Rock about a year ago and was pleased to find a breakfast place within walking distance form my house. I have tried Pat and Loraine's 3 times and each time with a different friend or family member. Each time we go, we leave disappoined with the customer service. The servers are very rude and treated us like we were bothering them whenever we asked for something...like a refill of coffee.
The owner rolled her eyes when a friend of mine asked her a question. I will never go back. Businesses must treat their customers better if they expect to be competitive with newer, hipper places to eat. Three strikes and Pat and Loraine's is O-U-T!! Perhaps they will get bought out soon by a smarter business person.
Best breakfast – I drive a long way for this food. It is excellent and plenty of it for a very reasonable price. I can't think of a better breakfast within 15 miles (and I eat out a lot). Clean neat place, friendly service, and great food.
just an average eagle rock breakfast spot – First time at the place after passing by it numerous times on eagle rock blvd. My husband & I usually eat at armon's up the street by swork or the french cafe beaujolis up on colorado. auntie em's is yummy for breakfast as well as lunch too! i've heard the place was good so decided to give it a try. upon entrance we were greeted cheerfully by our server. we were given coffee even before we could sit down which was nice but come reciept time it was $1.95 per cup! Yikes! their menu is expansive and some of it a little pricey with egg white substitues being $2.00 extra!!! at armon's, it's free everytime i order the veggie omelet. anyway, my husband ordered the double order of eggs benedict with home fries. it was a huge serving but the homefries were a bit mushy and not quite as good as armon's. i like my homefries in actual pieces and brown and crisp on the outside. i ordered a short stack of hotcakes which were large in circumference but flat like a coin. they were a bit mushy as well, which i didn't mind and were very filling. i could only finish one and gave the other two to my hubby. the taste was pretty bland. the place itself had a cozy feel to it and there is ample parking. only bummer is that it's cash only. at least i tried it so i know what to make of it, but i will not be in any rush to come back. i will stick to my regulars around eagle rock which are better and worth the money and quality.
Wow, take my paycheck why don't you? – Man oh man, I was in a mood for a bagel, some fruit, coffee and i wanted a choclate shake. I had the bagel, fruit and coffee but NO shake because they don't make shakes. Lets just say I was dissapointed because I didn't get a shake, apparently they don't make them there?
So i had my average bagel and a small little fruitbowl, some coffee . Time to pay. I ended up spending over 10 dollars with tip! excuse me? A little over the top if I do say so. I'm actually glad I didn't get a shake, would have ended up paying with a 20. The waitresses look rushed too like if they need to hire a couple of more hands. I don't know, I don't recommend this place. I heard a lot of good things about it, but i didn't experience that.
WHAT???? – I remember this place from years ago. WHY is it so different?? I'm sure they have new owners, which is horrible!
The vibe is so wrong! The waitresses are too busy talking to eachother and being scadalous that serving you becomes second place. I don't recommend eating here anymore. Before these owners, it was a different story.
