Copper Café and Bakery, at Madonna Inn Ratings and Reviews

I like to visit the Madonna Inn, however in the coffee shop, the place is showing some wear and tear. As well as some of the staff seems stressed, or impatient. I'd prefer to see a happy face when I'm starting my morning.

I was disappointed almost immediately. We had a reservation for lunch for 3 people. We were greeted by a pleasant lady who told us she was putting us at a table by the window, which we thought was nice of her. She called for the table to be cleared and set for us. When it was ready she prompted us to sit down. After approx. 10 mins I kindly asked a 'waitress in brown pinafore' for some menus....to which she replied quite sharply "you should have waited to be shown to your table and not just sat down anywhere you liked"!!! The lady who had greeted us explained it was her who had told us to take that table. My husband and daughter ordered a hot lunch, whilst I ordered the apple pie and cream which I'd heard was good. After 45 mins, the hot lunches arrived quite cold like they'd been sitting a while. The server realised my order hadn't arrived and after going to check, informed me that not only did they not have apple pie but NO PIES and would I like to order something else...seriously!!! I politely declined as I was not prepared to wait a long period of time for that to arrive, only for my husband & daughter to have finished. We left feeling deflated that after reading reviews on this place, we drove a long distance out of our way on our vacation, to be so disappointed with the service.

Traditional diner food with the bonus of Madonna cake. The cakes we had were a little drier than usual but still tasty. The decor is unique but needs refurbishing. The staff are very friendly and helpful with recommendations of favorite items on the menu.

I was celebrating my 61st birthday. They even gave me a balloon. Everyone's food came as ordered, delivered in a reasonable time frame. At times, it seems our waiter disappeared. Water replenishing was spotty. My wife ordered coffee w/ dessert. Our desserts were served w/out forks/spoons. Her coffee did not arrive until we flagged our waiter down. The place was not full at any time during our meal, a Saturday 6PM-7PM time frame. I will still go back, as this was not the usual service I have experienced.

We had breakfast at the Copper Cafe Friday of the holiday weekend, it was evident they weren't ready for the holiday crowd. Our poor waitress was overwhelmed and said she had eight tables all sat at once. It took an hour to get our food. She was very apologetic and finally let us know they brought in more servers and management so they would "now be ok". Looked at the time and realized it was 10:50am, past the breakfast rush but I guess late is better than never? We didn't really get refills or asked how our food was, but it wasn't the waitress fault. This is hardly the first holiday weekend the Madonna Inn has had, so they should have known better. Breakfast was good, but be prepared to wait for it and maybe even get your own water and coffee, which we saw people doing.

We came to the Copper Cafe to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. We made reservations ahead of time and our table was ready for us the minute we walked in the door. We were a party of 10 and our food was delivered in a timely manner. Everybody was more than satisfied with the quality of the food and the portions were so large that many of us took some our meals to go. We will definitely be coming here again!

I came here with a group of 5 girls for breakfast. We were staying at the Madonna Inn for a bachelorette party. It took over 30 mins to get our drink orders, over 45 mins to even place our order, and at least 40 mins after that to get our food, which was cold. The eggs Benedict cost $20 and was way over done and cold, but I didn't want to send it back for fear it would take hours to get a new plate. The waitress was busy, but hardly ever checked on us to refill drinks or explain why the food was so late until we said something to her. We had such a great experience the night before at the main restaurant, that this was extremely disappointing. At no point were we offered a discount or any apology or explanation for why it took us nearly 2 hours to have a quick diner style breakfast.
More than a landmark
The Madonna Inn is a Californua landmark. From their pink decor to their amazing cakes! I met up with a couple of friends for lunch at the Copper Cafe -the restaurant was crowded but we had a reservation and were seated immediately. The service was excellent as was the food. As a local I eat there often and have always had a great meal. You won't be dissappointed! My salad was tasty and more than adequate! I didn't save room for a slice of their cake! Next time.
We have eaten here frequently and have always enjoyed the food. The menus is varied and everyone can find something to enjoy. The service is nice and friendly. The French dip or bar b que beef is excellent. If you like sweet potato fries they are delicious. You must save room for desert!! Their cakes and pies are worth the calories.
Our reservations were ready and timely. Nice ambience in a pleasant room. Once seated we waited a reasonable time before we had to ask for our waitress . The hostess came and poured out water and then got the attention of our waitress. She took our order without writing it down and the wrong drinks were delivered to the table. Our food was average coffee shop quality and was over priced. Our waitress didn't maintain the table and the bill was delivered by the girl busing the tables. We didn't comment or give her any cause to ignore us.
Great Way to Experience the Madonna Inn
I have always wanted to go to the Madonna Inn and instead of staying there, decided to have breakfast at the restaurant. Options were pretty standard for breakfast: omelettes, pancakes, etc. The service was really friendly and fast. The best part is the ambience and the opportunity to experience the uniqueness of the Madonna Inn. Would definitely recommend this for a quick meal.

Food was way too expensive, it was ok... nothing to write home about. We tried the world famous cakes and honestly they taste like the cakes you get from a grocery store. Not impressed. The Madonna Inn is beautiful though, the environment remind me of inns and buildings in the Black Forest in Germany. I would recommend people to go there to look around but eat elsewhere to save money.

We dined here for dinner and breakfast since we were staying at the inn. Typical diner food. Took an extremely long time to get our dinner food even though we had only ordered sandwiches. Breakfast was just as slow. Food was basic and not great. Servers were friendly.
Great place for a quick bite
The Copper Cafe was recommended to me by a friend, and it was great. My husband and I shared the avacado salad and grilled ham and cheese, both were delicious. I loved the colored goblets and the stained glass windows. It was a nice little find and the desserts were fantastic!
Amazing Valentine's Day Dinner!
I've worked in the hospitality industry for 8 years (fine dining, catering, bartending, and everything in between) and there was no holiday I hated more than the dreaded Valentine's Day. Everything would always go wrong - food took too long, drinks were sloppy, servers were swamped, and tables came in with huge expectations but often left disappointed after a long wait or awful service. I was beyond amazed that we didn't experience a single one of those things during our Valentine's Day dinner at Copper Cafe. Everything was perfect, and I don't have a single complaint. We got there early and killed time at the bar, enjoying two rounds of drinks (Amazing Moscow Mules! It's hard to get them just right with the perfect balance of lime and ginger beer, and your bartender succeeded) and a light appetizer. When it was time for our reservation, we got sat right away at one of the nicest tables in the building (the huge booth in the back next to the kitchen doors). Service was fast and friendly, and the food (filet & lobster) came out much faster than anticipated, which was perfect because I was starving. Finishing with pink champagne cake was a nice touch, and we left absolutely stuffed and delighted.
Breakfast at The Madonna Inn
Enjoyed our breakfast with friends this morning. The table server Yessica was outstanding. Very professional but friendly.
The egg dishes were all to our liking. My husband enjoyed his hash and poached eggs as well. The portions are abundant.
Will definitely be returning very soon.
