Like the breakfast, arrived very fast, sat at the counter so there was no wait to be seated. The omelette was large so we shared it between the two of us, would go again!

I have been eating at Rick & Ann's for the past 10 years whenever Berkeley is my destination. The staff is friendly and accomodating. The food is well prepared and tasteful. The price is right. Avoid the weekend breakfast crowds by an early arrival. I have enjoyed breakfasts (Emily's Egg Plate or the California Platter) and dinners (Eggplant Neapolitan or... More

Located on a side alley below the Claremont Resort, Rick's is off the beaten track. We walked in without reservations and were able to be seated in a small and homey restaurant space. The menu was not extensive but seems to rotate and features pre fixe and daily specials. My wife and son had the macaroni and cheese from the... More

Was visiting my girlfriend in Oakland and she and her daughter brought me to Rick & Ann's. I am not a breakfast eater - I prefer lunch. But this was Sunday and they had brunch going on. They are popular for their breakfast items and and must have some Gluten Free items since my friend's daughter is GF and I... More

A pretty good place, but various people in our group (a bunch of us staying at the Claremont Hotel) had very different opinions. Some were quite pleased and thought the food very good, while some had a much lesser opinion. The place is usually very busy from opening to lunchtime, and is noisy. Some food is very good, some (pancakes... More

Thanks for sharing your experience with us! While it's wonderful to hear you enjoyed our friendly staff and some of our tasty dishes, it's a shame you feel we can be a bit hit-or-miss sometimes. Which kind of pancakes do you feel lack flavor? What are some other dishes you feel like we could improve? Any more feedback you have... More

The husband and I come here regularly, and there are times when we visit Rick & Ann's twice on a weekend (no, we are not ashamed). Originally, we would visit for dinner only, but we now come for breakfast ask well. Just about everything is great, but our particular favourites are the meatloaf, chicken pot pie and anything to do... More

Located at the base of the hill where the Claremont Hotel sits. A small place but it also has outdoor seating. There was a long wait but a nice menu selection.

Good food and atmosphere and service. The wait sometimes makes it a bit tough as there isn't that much interesting around the area as we wait.

Ive always loved this place for a good casual place with great homemade type cooking that is very flavorful. It's casual, cozy and friendly. Parking is generally easy too. Rick and Ann's never lets me down.

Fresh food, local ingredients - and an inventive menu. Especially enjoyed the "Down South" with cornmeal pancakes, turkey sausage and eggs w/ cheese. Friendly, fairly priced and a lovely spot for a weekend breakfast or brunch.
