Five out of five great breakfasts

We were staying at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley and trying to avoid the ultra-pricey breakfast offered there. I used Trip Advisor to find this gem and we ending up eating there five mornings in a row. Exit the back of the hotel (pool level), walk down the driveway, and there it is. The first... read more

This looks like a neighborhood breakfast place. Nothing fancy here but a good breakfast - we had french toast on challah bread, thick bacon, omelets and delicious muffins. Healthy servings that will fill you. Decent coffee although it could be stronger for my taste. Attentive staff. Ask for the booth in the back if you want a quieter conversation, or... More

Good food but a long wait on Sunday. Put your name in and then a stroll of the grounds at the Claremont Hotel.

I've eaten here several times. Nice variety and some unusual choices like gingerbread waffles. The scrambles are also good, with things like fresh roasted chilis. The coffee is surprisingly bad for Berkeley but the service is good. Skip coffee and have a fresh juice instead.

You'll find a really high-quality breakfast and lunch place (dinner?) Solid menu, excellent baked goods, very friendly service. They open what we think is late for a breakfast place -- 8 AM -- but this seems to be the schedule in California. Everyone must be out exercising before then...

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.

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.
