Best Diner in Bakersfield

For breakfast, the pumpkin pancakes and bisquits and gravy are a must! For lunch, I love their cold tri-tip sandwich on toast whole wheat sourdough! Honestly, everything is super yummy and reasonable priced. The waitresses and all the hosts are super friendly!

When you're in Bakersfield it's probably because you're on your way somewhere else like Las Vegas or LA; and for good reason. Unlike other towns in the middle of the desert, such as Vegas, there is not much choice to be had in Bakersfield so after consulting Yelp we headed over to the quaintly named 24th Street Cafe. It's got... More

We ate here for the first time after hearing how good it was for years. We've been back several times since then. We'll be trying the pumpkin pancakes when the weather gets cooler in October.

Been coming here for 25 years anytime I am in Bakersfield. Always great, many terrific specials as well as main menu. My wife is a vegetarian, and has many choices for both breakfast and lunch. Gets really crowded on weekends.

The pumpkin pancakes are scrumptious. The service outstanding. Your coffee cup is never empty even on the busiest of days, when the business was closing. Extra items (peanut butter & whipped cream) delivered quickly. Consistently the best!!

This restaurant was promoted on Drive Ins, Diners and Dives. On our way to Yosemite from Los Angeles, we stopped there because of the TV show. I ordered the Texas style chili because it was profiled on the show. The chili was very tasty but unfortunately, it was served warm -- not hot, as it should have been. I ordered... More

Really good food - the cinnamon rolls are the size of an adult head! While waiting for a booth could take awhile, the restaurant offered immediate and comfortable counter seating which we took. Service was friendly and fast. The restaurant is on the small side, which means single-stall bathrooms that live up to the old definition of "water closet." Still... More

I used to work in Bakersfield and usually went to Breakfast when I got off work from night shift. The food is good and the service was good. I recommend this place.
