Very nice cafe with breakfast and lunch options

setting: Right this is on Grayson street #900. Lunch time is always very busy. Parking could be a challenge. Has a friendly, light and vintage feeling. Building feels to be like a good old cabin. Also patio seating available for the warmer days. On the flip side: there is a certain food garbage... read more

I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. Pretty surprised to experience all the flavored of the food. And the grits were also very delicious!!

From the outside this restaurant in an industrial area of Berkeley doesn't look like much. But inside is a different story. The food is delicious and the service is friendly and fast. No wonder it's such a busy place. For lunch we split the namesake Grayson Burger and the specialty Demon Lover (Fried chicken breast and a buttermilk waffle). The... More

This is a popular restaurant in a fairly quiet part of town. There can be a wait for a table at busy times. The food is reasonably priced and everything looked good. My brunch was tasty and the portion was reasonable. This restaurant offers casual dining, but it can be a little haphazard when busy. Definitely worth the wait.

Saw this restaurant on Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives so went to check it out. There's a crowd waiting for the next open table. Friendly greeting, offered coffee while we waited. This is a 'come as you are' West Berkeley cafe. Tattoos and piercings abound. The food was decent but I think we had our hopes a little too high. We... More

I had the chicken and waffle. The waffle is not the super crispy kind but softer and like a sponge to soak up teh syrup. I got teh gravy with it. Great combo. The chicken was two pieces of breast fried and crispy. Perfect with the chicken gravy.

Great food and great environment. Sat outside on the back patio. Great service...incredibly helpful host staff and waitress. Burgers are delicious (my guest had one). Fries are really yummy. Salads are very well done - good fresh ingredients.

Whenever I go to Berkley, I HAVE to eat here. One of my favorite places for sure. Great service, great atmosphere, AMAZING food. I've tried almost everything and while everything is good, I always go back to my baby: Demon Lover (succulent chicken with waffles, and amazing gravy (or syrup)). It's always busy so prepare to wait a couple minutes... More

I've been enjoying my meals at 900 Grayson for years - they are always reliable for a delicious, fresh meal. There are great meat, vegetarian, and vegan options made with quality ingredients and the service is always friendly.
