Great place for breakfast

Bring family and friends to this great local dinner. Business breakfasts are good too. Easy directions from the freeway and walkable from Bart.

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.

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
