Whether your day starts, or ends, at Courtyard Café, it should definitely include it.
The café has been around for a quarter century under various owners, but Shawn and Nick have owned it for the last seven. While the location hasn’t changed, you can thank Shawn and Nick for the tasty improvements to the menu.
Take breakfast, where you can build your own omelet from dozens of options. Load up your eggs with everything from spinach to chili. Other favorites like the homemade biscuits and gravy and eggs benedict are up for grabs, too. Don’t worry, breakfast is served all day, so you can enjoy pancakes or French toast any time you want.
That goes for lunch and dinner, too. Grab a burger anytime, and build your own as well. For less than $10 you can add anything to your burger, including grilled pineapple and even sauerkraut. Essentially, add anything to your burger that the restaurant has on hand. And not just sirloin burgers, the café also offers turkey, veggie, and even an Alaskan salmon patty.
If that’s just too many choices, try the dozen-plus burger options on the menu, including the California Bacon Avocado burger and the fan-favorite Manor Burger.
Not into burgers? Try the chef’s homemade meatloaf with veggies and mashed potatoes or even the haddock (blackened, teriyaki or lemon pepper) dinner options. Look out for the kid-friendly menu, too, and bring them along on Tuesday or Thursday when they can eat for free. Ask about the fit fare selections for low-carb or low-calorie options.
Don’t pass over the appetizers! Try the popular fried green tomatoes – crispy, crunchy green tomatoes fried to perfection and served with a Cajun ranch dipping sauce. Or nosh on the mac ‘n cheese bites – deep-fried macaroni and gouda cheese balls that you can down in one chew. Some may consider this a bad thing but they taste delicious so it’s worth it.
If you’re around for breakfast, ask about the mimosa special: $4.50 a glass or the $20 bucket special – a bottle of champagne and your choice of orange juice, pass-o-guava or peach nectar. For other times of the day, beer and wine selections are available.
If you can make it to dessert, try any of the homemade cheesecakes that rotate often to whatever the chef prefers. For a limited time, try the pumpkin swiss roll – pumpkin cake layered with cream cheese and topped with whipped cream. Your visit will not be complete without this.
The Courtyard Café doesn’t just offer a wide variety of amazing diner food, but you can also get it anytime you want. They’re open every day, but walk in any time Thursday, Friday, or Saturday since they’re open 24 hours. Whether you’re starting your night off, or ending it, the Courtyard Café has everything you want, any time you want it.
