Had breakfast here a month ago with a bunch of friends. The service was ok, but the server would not let us save a table for all of our friends. The food is average, I heard people raving about it but I can do better at other Berkeley breakfast spots.

Recently enjoyed breakfast at Rick and Ann's. It was mid morning on a Monday and we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. But the restaurant was busy for all of the time we were there. Very friendly and competent staff. We had a range of dishes, eggs, pancakes, potato pancakes. All were excellent. Great location and... More

Locals and guests from the Claremont Hotel, alike, flock to Rick and Ann's. A Berkeley breakfast tradition. Good Service, strong coffee, good atmosphere. Try it once.

Good menu, good food, outdoor patio dog friendly. Breakfast outstanding. Nice blend of comfort food with some adventurous items. Not too pricey.

They have just great food-lots of variety to satisfy those with diet specifications like vegan, gluten free. The wait staff was terrific. No request was too big, even directions to a local supermarket. It is crowded and you have to wait for a table, but worth it. Parking is iffy, but we persisted.

So glad to hear you're a fan of our muffins! We so appreciate you letting other reviewers know about our vegan-friendly and GF options, too -- it's our pleasure to whip up delicious dishes to suit every palate. Here's hoping it won't be long before we get to welcome you back! Cheers, Rick & Ann, Owners More

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.
