Kay's Cafe is one of our favorite breakfast spots. The food is great! Eggs can be ordered any way you like them and are usually served to perfection. Good luck trying to find better biscuits and gravy anywhere. We've only had a grouchy waitress once in the dozens of times we have eaten there. It is local and easy to get to, but the parking leaves a lot to be desired. Many times we have to park across the street. Crossing Baseline, even in a crosswalk is taking your life into your hands. But, the food is worth it.
When the staff in my office are asked where they would like to go for lunch for bithday parties, etc., the answer is always Alfredo's. The food is delcious! I have never heard anyone complain about the taste or amount of food served. The favorites are the Large Shells, Lasagne, Pizza and Spaghetti. Even more than the entree, we love the bread and salad, especially with the Italian dressing. You won't find friendlier waiters or cashiers anywhere around. The food is always brought to the table promptly, which is important when we only have an hour or so for lunch. We have been going to Alfredo's for at least 20 years and still love it.
I have taken my vehicles for repairs to Manuel's Tire Shop for the past 15 years. Their tire shops does many more repairs than just tires - they work on transmissions, brakes, fix motor mounts, oil changes, belts, clutches and much more. I have had all of these repairs and more done over the years. Manuel and his sons have always greeted me with a smile. I am usually pleasantly surprised when I get the bill for the repairs, as many times it is less than I expected. Manuel is also honest. I have taken vehicles in thinking they needed brakes and after checking, I've been told more than once that the brakes are fine. I would recommend Manuel's Tire Shop to anyone and everyone.
My family has eaten at the Jade Inn 3 times and I cannot say that I would recommend it. It was hard to understand the waiter and the order was not correct when brought to the table. In my opinion the food is mediocre and I would rate the staff the same. The atmosphere is nothing special and I thought the prices were a little high. But, in their favor I have to say that my daughter loves their food.
I like the new changes that have been made when Chase Bank took over the Washington Mutual Bank in Highland. Each time I have gone to the bank, there is no waiting, or very little waiting in line. The bank tellers have all been friendly and professional and have completed my business in a timely manner.
Our family loves to eat at Two Guys Pizza & Pasta. The kids love the pizza and I love the lasagne. The Italian salad dressing they use is out of this world! We have had them cater two parties recently in our home and were very pleased with the results. The food arrived on time (Lasagne, salad with plenty of dressing on the side, and their wonderful loaf bread with plenty of garlic butter) - Yummmm! The prices are reasonable and the food is great! The waiters have always been pleasant.
I use the Bank of America in the Albertson's Grocery Store in Highland several times a week. It is convenient to stop and do my banking business prior to doing my grocery shopping under the same roof. I do think the new ATM machines that accept the checks without envelopes take longer to process my deposits, but I guess it saves a tree to do it that way. The bank personnel have always been friendly and professional when I've been in there.
When I take my camera memory stick to the Albertson photo finishing machine, I am always please with the results. I can order the photos (enlargements, etc) from the machine and usually, by the time I finish my grocery shopping, the photos are ready to be picked up on my way out of the store. It is convenient and very good quality photos.
Each of the 3 times I have had dental exams at Dr. Garcia's office, it has been a pleasant experience. Dr. Garcia runs a smooth, clean office. He and his staff have always presented themselves professionally and have been very courteous and friendly. I have recommend Dr. Garcia to friends who have also been very satisfied with his office.
I recently took my special needs daughter to Dr. Halliday for oral surgery to have a tooth extracted. What could have been a difficult time for my daughter (and myself) ended up being such a pleasant experience due to the professionalism and courtesy of Dr. Halliday himself as well as his staff. My daughter had such a great experience, she was not hesitant to return for her post-operative exam.
