This is a simple unpretentious little restaurant that serves the best home-style breakfast we've ever had at a restaurant. It has both inside and outside seating, including "common tables" where you are seated with other patrons (as we were). We were hesitant about the common table but it proved entirely pleasant. The staff is very pleasant, the kitchen exposed and... More

Setting: Close to the Claremont Hotel. Nice Setup Inside and Outside. Expect to wait 20-40 minutes. Waiting times are sometimes out of control (they tell you 20 and it will end up at 40 - I suppose I had a bad day). Service wants to make things fast, still nice and friendly. But you feel sort of rushed. Parking on... More

May 10 Probably not a good day to eat at Rick & Ann's, but this was the only available time. What a lovely location, in the shadows of the Claremont Resort, where we could watch tennis matches. Once we secured our parking space, we were committed and placed our names on a long waiting list. After 45 minutes we were... More

We were treated to an excellent breakfast at Rick and Ann's during a recent visit to Berkeley. Clearly a Berkeley institution, the food is fresh and well prepared and most of all very tasty.

We had heard about Rick & Ann's from many people on our visit to the Bay Area so on our last day in the area, we decided to give it a try. Even though it was 10AM on a weekday, we had to wait (just a bit) for a table. The wait was worth it as the food was very... More

Rick and Ann's has been in its location just below the Claremont for as long as we can remember. The food is consistently excellent and the menu includes some signature dishes such as red flannel hash. There is usually a wait on the weekends, but it is worth it. Also they provide catering.
