Nadia is the best server with such a pretty smile and fast service- Benedict's are the best around, we're here from Mexico and Seattle and never had a better brunch. Kudos to the awesome kitchen and bartender. Thanks for a great birthday.

I'm here once a week at least for lunch, and the red-headed server with the green shirt was awesome, I forgot to ask for her name! The food was delicious as usual, the coffee was steaming hot and rich.

Well she saved my sweetie's knit hat - Above and Beyond the call of duty. What's next? Rescuing kittens from burning skyscrapers? Curing Alzheimer's? Only Providence knows ;-) Anyways, Genie's Cafe has top grade service and food!

Upon our arrival to your fine establishment, we were greeted with smiles and good tidings. Shortly thereafter we were graciously seated by a strapping young gent. We then were greeted by one lovely waitress and were given the most amazing plates of food, EVER! We ate until our bellies were full of smiles! We love Genies!
