Oh my!! Such a great local place for enhanced breakfast experience!! Had the fried green tomatoes eggs benedict, heaven on a plate. Bacon was cooked to perfection. French toast so fluffy with crispy edges. The pineapple mimosa was amazing. And my server Landin was phenomenal, kept me hydrated and frequently checked on me. Wish there were more stars to give!!!

Why is it that when you order delivery something is always this case no syrup for french toast...Gets old fast

So here i was, having a horrible week. But decided to drag myself out to eat to just have a change of scenery. Went to this local restaurant to have a breakfast and contemplate things...little did i know my senses were in for an amazing experience. Greeted by big smiles, fast seating, and my server, phenomenal attentive Landin. I experienced a delightf pineapple mimosa, had the fluffiest french tosst with an excellent crusty edge, bacon done to perfection, delightful fruit, and,...only heaven describes the fried green tomatoes eggs Benedict....holy cow. So amazing, i wish i could leave 20 stars!!!

The food here is amazing. I usually have the breakfast with my favorite being one of the skillets. Everything seems to be delicious. They have some interesting mimosa’s. Try their Mimosa flight if you aren’t for sure. The orange juice is freshly squeezed.They do get busy in weekends but I have never waited for more then 20 minutes.

I didn't get many pictures but, we had lunch here today. The restaurant is very clean and staff were friendly. I tried the Mimosa flight and highly recommend the Strawberry Banana. I also had Mango and Black Cherry that were just not for me. My husband had the biscuits and gravy, fried eggs, sausage patty and hash browns. It was typical of most breakfast anywhere, excellent biscuits though! I had a BLT Platter which is the sandwich and fries. The BLT was served on regular toast that was a little dark for my liking. It would have been better on either Texas Toast or regular white bread in my opinion, fries were perfect. They have a big menu with lots of options! We will try it again.

We visit By Hand and Fork as often as our schedule allows. We have enjoyed some of their lunch items, but their breakfast is the best in town by far! They're usually busy on the weekends, however the wait is usually quick and the food is always out within a few minutes of ordering. The service is top notch and one of the main reasons we keep returning - the staff is attentive, kind and the tenured staff knows our kids names and ALWAYS goes out of their way to say hi and catch up with us. We've been regulars since they very first opened and will continue to visit regularly!!

I hadn't heard of this place until I met my boyfriend. He used to work here, and took me out for breakfast when I came down to visit. I loved the atmosphere! The little decorations on the wall were so nice, and the staff was so kind. They work their butts off to get the food to you as fast as possible, and the quality of the meals are top-notch! My favorite dish so far is definitely their chicken and waffles. But if you like fajitas or omelettes, why not try them combined? It's an option they have and it's so tasty! Highly, highly recommend! (Fun fact: Monopoly, the Muncie edition, actually has By Hand and Fork on the board!)

Arrived early morning, just after open. Very polite and prompt service. Food was good but not spectacular. Carrot Cake waffle seriously needed a cream cheese frosting/sauce/topping, otherwise ok. Big portion of hash browns cooked well and not greasy! Sausage gravy has lots of sausage yet surprisingly lacked flavor. Men's restroom not dirty. Overall - purdy good but we will be trying other establishments rather than returning.


Amazing food. Awesome serving staff! Accommodated a large gathering like it was nothing. Thank you for a great experience!!

Hidden treasure in muncie. Fresh orange juice. That's the fastest we've ever got our food at any restaurant and it was all delicious. A little on the expensive side.. but over all so good and worth it!

Fresh OJ , Great Pancakes, and wonderful service! You can’t go wrong heading here for breakfast!!


My sister, and I generally prefer non-chain restaurants when we travel. We were glad that we stopped here. The food was good, the place was clean, and had a fresh atmosphere. The service was excellent.
