    What a find! When a little snow scares off lesser cafes from opening, Hometown pulls up the slack. Old school rugged mindsets and hearty meals for more than reasonable prices. I'm glad my usual breakfast stop was closed, Hometown is my new favorite! Eggs bacon toast and coffee done right. Came out fast after ordering. You cant go wrong. Fabulous service. I noted everyone knew customers names as they entered. That is a great sign. It was like being at an aunts home or at Grandma's. Cozy place with a fireplace going too! Forget the diners, hometown is the perfect stop.

    I placed a simple order over the phone for takeout. 3 egg omelette and a plain toasted bagel with cream cheese. Placing the order was very easy and the young man taking my order answered all my questions and was very polite. The eggs were perfectly scrambled, toast was just right. No complaints, will be back soon!

    Ordered the breakfast burrito and strawberry pancakes. The burrito wasn’t warmed up with the tortilla so it was soggy and the cheese was cold. Then the pancake was very flat with very little fluff. The pancake kind of reminded me of when someone makes a pancake from scratch for the first time and they don’t put enough flour or something. Service was moderate. Improvements could be made

    I went to this place only because they were open early. I had what I would consider a normal breakfast: eggs, ham, home fries. This place reminded me of one of those back woods, hole in the wall places that make great homemade food, WITHOUT THE GREAT HOMEMADE FOOD, THAT IS!!! When my breakfast came, I noticed the home fries were almost black. They weren't black from being burnt. Rather, these looked like old boiled potatoes that were left in the fridge too long, then used for breakfast rather than be thrown away AS THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN!!! Also, the skins were on. I don't really have a problem with that, except for the sand I ate that came along with the one or two pieces I sampled. They were totally inedible. My scrambled eggs were tasteless. I don't know what they fried the eggs in, but it sure as hell wasn't butter. The only thing that had any taste at all was the ham. I don't want to comment on particulars about the check, so let's just say that for what I got, it was highway robbery. The coffee is also horrible. If you're in that area and find yourself looking for a place to eat, pass this place and find a real diner elsewhere. A little advice to the chef/owner: TRY TASTING THE FOOD YOU'RE SERVING. It's disgraceful, disgusting, and inedible. You should be ashamed of yourself serving this fodder.
