We have eaten here twice and the food was great. Omeletes are big and tasty...pancakes are out of this world. Service is tough. Long line and a number of forgotten things... But unlike other places they tried to make things right and were very apologetic for service issues. A must try.

I have been to this place a few times. Something is wrong with their kitchen and their food. The service is so slow, and they charge too much for what they offer (which is nothing special at all)

Slow sloppy service. Under (or un-) cooked eggs. Indifferent management. If they can't even toast bread, then what. I'll stay home and make my own.

20 minute wait for a 11am Sunday wasn't bad, but the system could be improved with better care for the clients outside like offering cold glasses of water. Food took 1/2 hr to arrive which was two simple eggs benny with salmon. The presentation of a skillet makes it look cool but totally out of context as no poached eggs would ever be cooked this way. And the skillet wasn't even warm and to be considered a dish warmer! The muffin virtuLly untoasted. And the eggs, barely cooked. Hollandaise, like from a jar. Dense and not fluid and making you want more. Salmon wasn't even salmon. It was over salty lox. If the waiter wasn't busting his butt as much as I saw around us I would have said something. The homefries were also half cooked. Really lame over all. Kicker was the architecture upstairs with one ac unit. We were seated close and once that ac came on it was ridiculous so strong you would belong in a meat fridge. Would not go back. All hype. Should have read reviews and not gone instead of getting sucked into the trendiness. Shame. Not worth $50 for two.

Friend of a Farmer is a wonderful place to meet an old friend and be charmed by the sense that you are spending time in a timeless place. It's not about the meal which is fine, and though perhaps on the higher end of prices it's not out of line. Open for breakfast during the week which is a nice alternative to high strung places.

I walk past the lines of people outside every sunday morning and laugh - I know they're paying too much for mediocre food and poor service, and they deserve it for jamming up the sidewalk like a herd of sheep.

we sat down and ordered our food - waited 45 minutes and it never came. Our waitress kept apologizing and promising it was coming out in "2 minutes" but when the table of 5, who came 15 minutes after us, got their food we decided to take the hint and leave
