Love the Food!

They have great gluten free pancakes! Everyone else also loved their breakfasts as well. So well, that we went back the very next day. We were in a hurry, so they brought our food out incredibly fast for us even though we were a pretty big party. There is usually a wait, but it's worth it.

We chose Rick and Ann's over the Claremont Hotel's breakfast, and we're glad we did. The food was fresh and delicious, service was friendly and reliable despite the weekend crowds, and the local patrons at the community tables, including many families with young children, were lively without being distracting. A fun place for a hearty and well priced breakfast.

The hash has beets, sweet potatoes, onions and bacons. Delicious. Eggs perfectly cooked and a light airy tasty lemon ginger scone completed this wonderful breakfast. Too bad we are only visiting!

Lots of really tasty breakfast choices, and a nice patio to eat them on. Dinners are homey and delicious, with a special prix fixe every night.

I had surgery in Oakland and was ravenous after a day with no food - sent my friend for some take-out from Rick & Ann's. We both ordered the meatloaf - it was incredibly good - probably the best meatloaf I've ever had. Came with mashed potatoes, gravy, and steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. It was so good, that we... More

We've been back for breakfast and lunch several times recently and the meals have been very good. Since we've been eating here off and on since they opened years ago, there have been a couple of ups and downs but over the past few months everything ordered has been enjoyable. Very popular, can be busy.

It may not be your hipster super new age breakfast joint, but Rick and Annes does breakfast right.

My mother, grandmother and I went to Rick and Ann's yesterday for brunch and found a long wait--always a good sign! However, we were disappointed to learn they don't offer a call when your table is ready. I am curious as to why not, since this helps to free up congestion in the lobby and allows patrons to busy themselves... More
