Great Breakfast

A great little place for a quick breakfast. The food is good, the service is good. Had the Biscuits and Gravy, which were very tasty.

After visiting the Spencer's Restaurant and enjoying it, we decided to give the Cafe a try. The staff is small so they seemed distracted and not at all interested in the NEW patrons. You can see they get repeat customers by the way the staff reaches out to them, I thought that was nice. My coffee was burnt, the water... More

We went to Spencers on the East side of Bakersfield. We were very impressed. They had an appetizer combo that worked great for us and filled us up. The food was great. The service was awesome. Stephanie did a great job waiting on us. Very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant and ask for Stephanie.

Great homemade breakfast at this restaurant. Service is fast and excellent with a smile on all the time. I've yet to have a bad experience here. The quality of food along with the portion size is great for the reasonable prices. This is my weekend spot for breakfast from now on.

This is one of the best breakfast places in town. All American breakfasts, some with a Latin flare. The whole wheat pancakes are great, but the eggs are always perfect and hash browns are that great balance between soft and crunchy. The décor is a bit drab, but it's county dining so I don't mind a bit.

My wife and I go to Spencer's Cafe every couple of months for lunch. They have a great Texas Salad, and my wife favors the Chef's Salad. Always fresh and flavorful. Service is invariably friendly, and the prices are reasonable.

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and have always been pleased with the food and the service. They have a completley separate menu for seniors. They are usually very busy, but the wait is usually short. We reccommnedn that you try it whether you live in Bakersfield or are just passing through.

Went with hubby and was seated very quickly. Service was almost perfect. Our waitress got our drink order right away and our also took our food order rather quick......but forgot to give it to the cook. Waited nearly 30 minutes and no food. We checked on it and she found her mishap, came over and apologized and got our food... More
