I met a few friends for brunch at River Oasis Cafe on a Sunday. Three groups were seated after us. Despite being seated first - it took the waitress ~25 minutes to take our order. My friend (who is a strict vegetarian) ordered a vegetable omelet. When we finally received our food, my friend discovered considerable amounts of meat in her vegetable omelet. She explained the situation to the waitress and another omelet was ordered. When the second omelet arrived - it too had meat in it. My friend was unable to eat any of it. When the owner checked on us, my friend voiced her displeasure with the service. The owner proceeded to tell her that she was making a unreasonable demand for not wanting to pay for a meal she was unable to eat due to the establishment inability to keep meat out of her VEGETABLE omelet. He was extremely rude to all three of us and told us if we didn't want to pay we could leave and never come back.
I don't understand how an establishment can be run by such a person. Being a vegetarian is not uncommon, and if you market a VEGETABLE omelet - there should not be considerable amounts of meat found in said omelet.
I will not be returning to this establishment which is sad.
What a great place to stop – We stopped here expecting so-so service and food. What a pleasant surprise when we received fantastic service and delicious food at a reasonable price. When we walked through the door, the owner was right there to let us know our seating options. Our server was cheerful, upbeat and helpful. We got our food quickly. I had a spinach salad with grilled chicken an my husband got a half pound burger. I'd eaten a few bites of my spinach salad when the owner came out. He saw my plate and asked how much of it I'd eaten. I told him just a few bites and it was delicious. He said it should have been bigger, and had more salad brought out. I'm glad he did because this was my new favorite salad, and the River Oasis Cafe is now our new favorite place to eat!
Excellent breakfast. – I had my first meal at this non-assuming cafe and was delightfully surprised with the quality of the meal. The service is top notch and the price was inexpensive. The more-than-you-can-eat servings are sure to leave no one walking out the door hungry. If you're in the area, this is a sure "win" for breakfast. In today's franchise-cluttered world, eating here was a very good experience.
