Nice place, very clean and spacious. Large tvs to watch a game, nice people and bartenders Only complaint, if you serve micro-beer please serve in a pint glass. Get some Lakefront or GB micro brews there.
It really is a nice place for a remodeled gas station. However if not for the building layout you'd never know it. Good drinks, reasonable prices, great staff, and supposedly good food which I have never tried to experience. Seriously the only complaint I have about this place is its too bright. That's it. Otherwise it's a very nice place for the less adventurous or those that don't care for any type of divey adventure. Still I do stop in here when I can.
I stopped in here while passing through. This place was excellent. I got an omelet that was awesome. This is also one of the few places that offered me homemade bread with my breakfast. The only thing to be aware of is that they can overcook the egg a little, but since I like my eggs more done I enjoyed it. The portions are excellent. This is a great little spot.
Many mornings I pass the Cecil Diner it is busy, so I had to try it. While it looks like many have nostalgic association with this little place, Cecil Diner was a new experience for me. The prices (FYI- cash only) are affordable and the service is personable. Aside from that, I don't see the lure many others do. My husband and I have had breakfast here and it was okay. At some point we may return, but there are other places in the area I like better. I got the chorizo and eggs, pleasantly surprised to see chorizo on the menu. The chorizo was mixed into scrambled eggs with potatoes on the side. The chorizo was good and abundant, but the eggs were rubbery and not fluffy. I think there were better possibilities with this dish. The potatoes were bland. There were two noteworthy things to this dish, aside from the chorizo. The salsa was spicy and seemed homemade-- really good. The bread, too; light and flaky and not typical store bought. In spite of the positives, the meal was only ok. With a little creativity and texture variation this dish could be so much better. My husband got the typical heart stopper breakfast... Again, bland aside from the toast. He got OJ and said it taste funny. Oh, and the atmosphere is that of an old cafe. People don't come here because it is pretty to look at. So, while many come here for the memories, I do not foresee making the same kind of memories here.
Potato pancakes! Best you'll ever have. Been coming to Cecil's since I was a kid. There's no other diner like it. The breakfast is amazing, and served all day. Delicious homemade pies and strawberry shortcake.
