Underwhelmed by Old Town Cafe

A death in the family, gloomy weather, and a lack of time to cook have all contributed to a less than stellar start to the New Year.  In an attempt to cheer up my ever faithful foodie partner in crime, Joe, asked if I wanted to go to lunch.  For more on the Old Town Cafe, check out the full review at Tallahassee.com.

  1. I have gone to Old Town a handful of times – usually because there is a coupon in the paper. :o)

    However, the only thing I have eaten there was the prime rib, it came recommended and is indeed pretty good. I always get a baked potato with it, so never encountered the instant mashed potatoes, but did encounter the canned green beans. Usually when I go, at mid-30′s I’m one of the youngest people in there, not counting the servers. Not sure if age or familiar clientele is part of the acceptance of the canned items that encourages OT’s owners to use them or if OT’s owners feel they need to cut corners to stay open. In the end, there are other places in town to get prime rib … just not always with a coupon. ;o)

    • I understand that some places will cut back on certain items to save a dollar or two. But a diner that is located next to a farmer’s market should be able to use fresh produce.

      We experienced a similar thing regarding the age of the clientele. I am also in my mid 30s and by far was the youngest person there who was not working.

      I understand wanting to use coupons! I have never seen that in the paper, though it might be worth checking out (the meat that is, I’ll skip their veggies!).

  2. Your review is spot on. I tried Old Town Cafe for lunch once alone and with a business associate. Very dissatisfied both times.
