Great fresh food, friendly staff. Nice and clean. Orders are taken at the counter and then brought to your table. Prices are reasonable and menu is interesting without being "too" interesting (read weird). Recommend and would return.

Every time I'm in Chico and it's time for breakfast I want to go to Beatniks. Had another breakfast there this morning....likely my 5th in 3 years, as I visit from out of town. They have lots of room for indoor dining, and a great patio for outdoor seating when the weather is good. You order your food and drink... More

My wife an I indulge ourselves often at this friendly, upbeat breakfast hangout. Coffee is fantastic, food options are numerous and the staff are attentive. We truly enjoy Beatniks.

We were passing through Chico on our way home to Oregon and stopped to get a cup of coffee. We also got the best gluten free treat, an oatmeal peach bar - SO good! Coffee is excellent too. Nice relaxed atmosphere.

Fantastic selection of breakfast items. Our entire table had something different and yummy to sample, from sandwiches to breakfast mexican to oatmeal to biscuits and gravy. Fresh tasting ingredients and good coffee. I had the breakfast club and really enjoyed it.

Several of us dropped in after our workout. I had the biscuits and gravy and wow was that a mistake. There was almost more onions, of all things, than there was gravy and the sausage that was used was Italian sausage. Um, yeah. If you're going to something weird with a very well-known dish can you please indicate that on... More

I eat here several times a month. I think that it offers the best breakfast in Chico. It is a popular place, and crowded certain hours of the morning. Parking is a big problem. Even though there might be room inside, there could be no parking spaces available. This is a god place for breakfast with friends. There are nice... More

Gotta try their eggs Benedict - so many variations to choose from - there's one for everyone in the family so bring 'em all!! Fast and friendly service, really nice atmosphere, especially on the patio with the trees overhead.

So I have tried the food here several times and have given up. The cashier or cook don't communicate well apparently as the order was wrong each time. The food was bleh and the place was not very clean. I felt the baristas ignored customers. Some people there hog up tables forever with no real purpose other than using a... More
