Cozy little Cafe

This little Cafe is always a good cal for fast friendly service and good food. They are affordable and the view of the little town circle is nice as well. They even have a little outdoor sitting area if you want to enjoy the fresh air while you eat.

Stayed the night in kernville to hike in the morning near green horn, so before the Hike in the morning we needed breakfast to make sure we'd survive so we stopped at Cheryl's diner, I like the atmosphere and the country music, the food was good and the service was excellent!!

We came here for breakfast with our kids on a recent visit to Kernville. We stood in the entry, not knowing if we were supposed to wait or seat ourselves. Several employees looked at us when we walked in, walked by us and went about their business. Not one greeting. Finally, after about a minute, one of them looked at... More

Having driven in from Las Vegas, we were tired and wanted a quick place for dinner before turning in at the Kernville Inn. Well, Cheryl's is right next door to the Inn and it was perfect for us. We walked over...were welcomed...served quickly...the food was great and we were back to our hotel. We were so impressed with Cheryl's place... More

Didn't love the food...but the service was great and the location is awesome. Very cute inside. Seems to have a loyal following, though. Got the burger and it was "eh".

Great home cooked food. Friendly staff and always polite. Deserts are made fresh daily. Our favorite, the Pecan Pie alamod. Not the cheapest place to eat, but one of the best. If you happen to be there on a Friday and you like Fish n Chips, from 11:30 am till closing, it's all you can eat for $12. It's good... More

Me and my dad and brothers have been going there every year for almost ten years now. We are so welcomed with friendly open arms. They are so accomadating and even remember our names, I think. The food is also very good and we love to return every year and catch up!

A place to eat and people watch. There is a patio at the front with a view of the small town. Cozy and realxing feeling ambience. Easy parking and walking distance from everything. The food was like any small town cooking and serving was filling. There is free wifi which was a huge factor for this place.

Cheryl's is a family diner in quaint Kernville, California. Cheryls husband built the place and family works as the friendliest most accomodating servers anywhere. The food's all American: huge pancakes, burgers and fries, meatloaf specials omlettes and always home made pies. They will make sure you are happy be it substitutions or whatever. It is not gourmet but if you... More
