I was looking for a good diner that had typical diner food, especially for breakfast on the weekends. My wife and I saw this place, and it looked like JUST what we wanted. WRONG! We ordered breakfast on a Saturday morning. She had an omelet, I jad bacon & eggs. When my wife took the first bite of her omelet,... More

This is not a fancy restaurant but the decor harkens back to an earlier time and is clean. The restaurant offers many classics like a club sandwich and hot sandwiches, for example, a combination of bread, roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy. We also love the gyros sandwich or platter, the meat is flavorful and lean. This is our favorite... More

This place is a typical 60's style diner, with a very good breakfast menu. The wait staff was friendly and quick and the food was very good.

Every time we come to Arvada to visit our kids, which is usually once a month, we go to the Ralston Cafe. It is sort of a tradition. The owners are super nice and the waitresses are always kind and efficient. Yesterday I had the best cheeseburger ever. The bun was fantastic and the fries were tender inside and crispy... More

We began going to the Ralston Cafe almost 30 years ago when our kids were young. I just went again, and couldn't believe that nothing had changed -- this is good and bad (?). Just kidding. The food is as good as ever -- real downhome-made food, huge proportions. We mostly go for breakfast so I can't comment much on... More

Ate here after recommendation but was disappointed. I had the croissant egg sandwich. It was bland, but large portion of egg--no spices or seasonings--cheese, and tomatoes on a not so great croissant. $7.25 no sides included. The service was nonexistent. The atmosphere is diner but dirty not home feeling or quirky. Nothing special, very disappointing
