Can anyone recommend Cynthia's on 3rd Street?

Never been. What do you think?

  1. Hi... Don't know if you can search the old board's archives here on the new boards. If you can, you'll find the consensus seems to be that the cobbler at Cynthia's *may* be worth the berating, soul-numbing, random diatribes flung by the eponymous owner herself. For the rest of us, if we want to be yelled at unapologetically between mouthfuls of good comfort food, we can simply dine at the homes of our insane relatives ;-).

      Very well put. I personally feel that it is not physically possible to make food taste good enough to be worth enduring the lunatic abuse that can accompany a meal at Cynthia's.

    2. My friend's really like the berry cobbler, but there is attitude that comes with the food. You also can't just order the berry cobbler, there is a minimum order per person.

        1. Can't recall what I ate there for dinner [a year ago] but it was GREAT and I've been meaning to go back since. Everyone who I was with LOVED what they ate. This place still packs 'em in. It's always full.

          1. havent eaten there for over a year but ive had two or three meals there and they were all delicious. the bacon-wrapped meatloaf was my favorite and the cobbler was delicious. went there last with a large group and everyone enjoyed their meals. yes, the service was a bit cold but the food made it worthwhile.
