The place has a small home town vibe. Unfortunately I was not greeted nor was acknowledged once I took a sit at the counter it took a few more minutes of recognition. Finally recognized I ordered the omelette with Spinach and tomato plus a side of pancakes. Pancakes were decent but the omelette was bad, still wet on the inside. The water I also ordered, well I had to ask again for it. I also had to ask for the check as the worker were busy on their phones. I really tried to like this place but every turn was unsuccessful.

We've been here 3x. The first time I ordered the grilled cheese and my fiancé got wings with the house sauce. The grilled cheese was good. Basic and filling, I got two sandwiches with the order. The wings were good. Large size and the sauce was flavorful. The two following times we both ordered the wings with house sauce and fries. Satisfied with the portions and the flavor is always delicious! Reheat value is good but not excellent with the wings, but we rarely have leftovers. The only reason I give 4 instead of 5 stars is it is a long wait. The wings are made fresh to order so they take around 15-20 mins to fry. I'm used to par cooked wings that need to be finished off in the fryer so they take around 5-7 mins. We enjoy going here whenever we're in the area and will continue to do business here. The owner is very nice and friendly.

Their strength is soul food, I'll be checking out the soul food Sunday. I had a burger, it was small, cooked well done and came with freezer fries, for $7 it was acceptable. I tried my wife's order of chicken and waffles and the chicken was amazing. The waffle was just fine.

Hidden gem right near the Mass Mutual center. Good food and great service

Chef Ronell

Fish n grits has over cooked fish. They use a timer on their deep fryer and the fish comes out dry.

Jim Blake

Worst place , horrible service, the food was cold and had to wait way to long. This place doesn't even deserve a star

Kimothy Jones

Good customer service and great tasting food! I had the whiting fish, collard greens, rice and gravy, candied yams and cornbread! It was superb and The passion fruit ice tea was delicious!

Chrystelle Dawkins

Great food and service. Will definitely be returning


Clean place to eat, friendly cashier/cook. I had ordered Togo and when I received my order I noticed the bag was a little light. PORTIONS, PORTIONS, PORTIONS. What is going on the small burger was ok as far as taste then the fries just the same. I'm surprised, I'm not at all greedy nor do I expect a 5 lb plate but you can do better. I'm a chef myself I understand. If your going to serve child size meals ADJUST,and compliment it with a child size price.

Good food, but it wasn't amazing. All of the bakery items were gone exept for some cupcakes with stale frosting. However, it wasn't horrible


Love the fish & cheese grits and the hospitality was great ð???ð???ð???ð???ð???

Today I had the pleasure of experiencing a great lunch from the chef at the Armory Grille! He was a guest chef and it was an awesome experience! The chicken and waffles were awesome! The chef was so accommodating and visible for everyone to meet and speak with. He went the extra mile in assisting me and I really appreciate it! He has a new customer in me. I cannot wait to go to the restaurant this weekend!

Love this place! I don't know why I'm just now finding out about Sweet Ideas Cafe, but I'm so glad I did. For anyone who works in downtown Springfield or is familiar with the area they are located where the old B'Shara's Restaurant used to be across from Berkshire Bank. The food is so good.

The first time I visited, I ordered simple hamburger and fries. The burger was very shoddy and the fries portion was very small. I don't like to give up on potential lunch spot on one visit, so I tried again and this time ordered the fish and chips. It was above average and I was pretty happy with the visit. Third time I ordered the fish and chips again as it was good the last time. 25 minutes after I ordered, they asked me what I ordered and then charged me for the meal. 10 minutes later, still no sign of food. I asked about it an was ignored. By this time, it looks like I will be late for a meeting and just leave. $7.41 isn't that expensive a lesson. Hopefully the casino will offer some decent lunch options when it opens.

Stumbled across this place on accident but the waiter waived me in, very sweet girl the seafood platter was delicious! Defenitely recommend!

Evelyn Scruggs

Excellent fiah & chips. Prices not bad at all

I walked in right as they were closing and the owner could not have been any more accommodating. I offered to leave, but instead he cooked and served me right away. A younger kid, I assume his son, was helping out as well. It's kind of tucked away, but very, very close to MassMutual. I got chicken and waffles, it was quite filling. I'd go back if I return to Springfield soon.

Soul Food Sunday....Best meal...Fried chicken with house sauce, rice and gravy, collards, Mac & Cheese, and yams. Great!

Breakfast and service was great. Would recommend for anyone needing quick breakfast. Thanks!

"This was our first time eating here. The waiter was great. I love to see young people working. The fried fish was light and crunchy. My husband loved the smothered porkchops they were really huge and he had one left over for later. The collard greens were so good that we ordered extra to take home for later. We will go back for breakfast to try the fish and grits."

I went in to purchase a ticket for their upcoming Paint Party, only to see they were also having a fish fry. Well I ordered one fish n fries. I got 3 big pieces with a special tartar sauce?? Im so upset right now. I should have bought 2 dinners the fish was great. I might have been ok but my son walked in and took a whole piece.

Friendly workers and amazing fried chicken. Definitely give this place a try. Also a good spot if you want to sit and get some work done with a nice cup of coffee.

Benjamin Rivet

Food is very good, as well as the prices reasonable. Very cozy little place with polite workers. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quite, enjoyable breakfast in downtown.

I've given an extra star because I want very much for this place to do well. The problem is I've been there twice now and the food is okay but the service is very s l o w. I ordered a hamburger and fries and two parties that were seated after I was were served, finished eating and left before my meal arrived. The main issue is probably a lack of staffing. Hoping for better soon.

Very cute spot. Cozy but not too small. Right downtown tucked in across from the mass mutual center. The cook does it all. He took out order and got us our coffee. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. We each had omelets, home-fries and coffee for less than 20.00. There was metered parking one block over. I will be back again.
