We were visiting my sister and her husband in the town where I grew up. I had not been to this restaurant before. It was one of my parents' favorites. I was interested in going out for breakfast so we visited on Thursday morning a little before 9:00. We were seated immediately at the "community table". The community table is... More

Since most of the reviews were for breakfast/brunch I wasn't sure what to expect from the place for dinner. Rick & Ann's was on my list of places to try in Berkeley, so when my mom and I booked a short getaway at the Claremont I was happy to find that it was right across the street. Also, finding somewhere... More

Full,of locals which must be a good sign. We enjoyed very generous portions including delightful pancakes with all the extras. Not on the tourist route but if you are in Berkeley well worth a visit.

A friend from out of the area likes "local flavor" places to meet for a meal, and Rick & Ann's just hit the spot. Great food, great service, lovely location.

This seems to be the place where the locals eat Sunday brunch. after being told the wait was an hour, we waited about a half hour. they do not take reservations. I had a wonderful omelet with fresh peas, asparagus, and goat cheese. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Our daughters got to devour fluffy stacks of pancakes and crispy bacon while we were able to sip pink guava mimosas and delight in more unique brunch options, like the flavorful local bay shrimp frittata.
