When camping on the Kern River, we stopped here for breakfast several times. The food is simple fare but always good and the coffee is great compared to most American restaurants. Considering that most restaurants in Kernville are not really exceptional this is one to consider. The ice cream is pretty awesome, too.

This isn't my first visit here for breakfast and I've always walked away very satisfied. Today was no exception. Since the weather was great we sat outside at their family picnic style tables. There's 4 adults and 3 young children in our party. The server was quick to respond and went right to work taking good care of us. The... More

We mainly go off of locals recommendations and they really nailed it with this one. The service is great and they somehow knew when I needed a coffee refill even though we sat outside. I ordered a skillet mash that included eggs, cheese, hash browns and bacon. The serving was huge and I just about fell into a food coma... More

Nothing to look at inside or out, just fabulous food and service! We found this wonderful place to eat on a road trip through middle California in Kern County. It has arguably the best short-order cook we've ever experienced. The food was delicious and plentiful, service attentive and friendly. We will go back when we are in the area again... More

Straight from the griddle. Hot & fresh and it's gone by the time started back to giving a review. We will stop here again, next time through.

Had breakfast here before a ride and fell into the trap of choosing one of everything off the menu (nearly). Great value for money, tasty, greasy (always a good thing), straightforward, no fuss and the sort of customer service I've come to expect from american food establishments.

On a camping weekend on the Upper Kern River, I checked with Trip Advisor regarding a good place to eat breakfast. The Cracked Egg Cafe sounded good, so Saturday morning, my friend Kevin and I had breakfast. Kevin ordered the chicken-fried steak and I had a bacon & avocado skillet. Food was very tasty, and the portions were satisfying. This... More
