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

I've eaten breakfast here several times and, although the portions are large, the quality is just average (and it's expensive). Their potatoes are awful, and they charge extra to substitute fruit. The pastries are a bit dry. I've had better luck at lunch--the salads are very good (still on the pricey side). There are better restaurants in Chico if you're... More

Beatniks has excellent breakfasts and lunches. The second Sunday of every month there is a group of Classic Car enthusiasts who show up with their fun rides. The outside patio dining is very nice with big umbrellas for shade. We highly recommend Beatniks.

Good, fresh sandwiches (I had the veggie and my partner had the pork) with decent service. The iced coffee was only OK, and their coffee wasn't remarkable but it was good. Open, airy space with plenty of outdoor seating.

Great Bfast and service. Unlike the Cafe Coda, there was no wait. The Benedict eggs were cooked just the way i like it. I would go again.

I wish Beatniks Coffee House was in my town because I'd eat there every day. While traveling through Chico, I stopped in for breakfast before continuing my trip. I was pleased with everything about Beatniks. I decided to go with the Classic Eggs Benedict. Poached eggs are sometimes a real challenge for a restaurant, but not here. The eggs were... More
