Lively coffee house with good food and coffee

Beatniks is a very well operated. The service and items offered are very, very good. Prices are not necessarily low, but value and consistency is well worth the cost.

Ordered the Veggie Omelet, an Americano, and French Toast for my son. Service was quick. All the ingredients tasted fresh, nicely prepared. The portions were large. The folks who work there are friendly and helpful. Easy to park, and the restaurant has lots of spacious seating, indoors and out. The atmosphere is relaxed. I will definitely go back.

Meet your buds here for a coffee or breakfast on the patio. Outside or inside dining. Good selection of coffee drinks and good menu for breakfast or lunch.

Visiting Chico again to see my mom, and always a must visit is Beatniks for their variety of Benedict breakfast choices. I always go for the Natural though - because it's low carb with tons of protein (especially if you swap the potatoes for their delicious veggie hash). The patio is delightful as is their attentive staff.

If the weather is to your liking they have a large patio to eat outdoors. Have a variety of out of the norm breakfast... More

My husband and I had breakfast, French toast made with a bread I am not familiar with, crispy on outside and softer inside. Really really good. Husband had biscuits and gravy with eggs, equally good. We keep forgetting about this location when we want breakfast but not anymore!!
