Excellent place for lunch

Went here for lunch and it was great. Place was pretty packed though, we waited a little bit, but the food was really good. They have half sandwiches which was plenty enough for me to fill up on.

This is my go-to place for a quick lunch of great food and welcoming service. I usually opt for soup and salad--Curt's homemade soup is the best! The broth in the chicken rice soup is so flavorful and delicate and there are big chunks of perfectly done chicken. Tuesday's soup is my favorite: navy bean with bacon--very flavorful. The hamburgers... More

We have done most of the breakfast options here, and they're all great. We've also had several of the lunches here, also equally tasty. Special orders - like hash browns extra crispy - no problem!

This diner is a great place to stop and share breakfast with your party and also your friends and neighbors you will find there as well. It has a great "old time" feel to it...a real throwback to the good old days. The menu has many choices and are a good hearty meal. We were there for breakfast and what... More

I came here for a morning meeting. I got there pretty early so seating was not an issue. The friendly wait staff brought me coffee while I waited for the person I was meeting to arrive. I ordered the one egg (over easy) breakfast; everything was tasty and prepared just right . It's nothing fancy but the prices are reasonable,... More

This is Orinda's favorite place for breakfast. The menu is extensive, the prices reasonable, and the service homey and excellent. They also make very special sandwiches.

Village Inn makes my favorite egg salad sandwich, generously loaded with plain, yummy egg salad. With a side of homemade potato chips, I just can't say no. Plus, the sandwich is so big that I take half of it home. It's my go-to comfort-food restaurant for lunch when I need a special mid-day treat. Service was attentive, too. If you're... More

Really the only place in Orinda for the classic "American" Diner brunch at the weekend - hence the fact that you can have to wait a while for a table especially if you are a bigger party as the restaurant is quite small. BEWARE - The diner only serves breakfast on a Saturday until 11.25am, all day breakfast is ONLY... More
