This is what going to a country diner should be. Wait staff was friendly and helpful and the food was better than your typical diner fare. The menu is inspired from locally grown fruits, meats and vegetables. Breakfast pancakes were amazing. In a town that is becoming filled with swanky food options the Pine Cone Dinner is a great option... More

Cute place with good service. Unfortunately, the food is only ok.Disappointing attention to egg dishes. I thought the coffee was ok, but my husband didn't.

My sister urged me stop at the Pine Cone Diner without specifying their "specialty". I went for the corned beef hash with poached eggs. Wow! I have had hashes with corned beef, venison (of different critters), pork belly and probably muskrat, but this was simply great. With researchers urging more protein, the Pine Cone has nailed it. This meal was... More

It has the retro-cool look and feel of a diner, but the food at the Pine Cone Diner is a notch above standard diner fare. Taking full advantage of the region's local, farm sourced meats and vegetables, everything at the Pine Cone Diner tastes fresh and homemade. I particularly like their breakfasts with big fluffy buckwheat pancakes, savory omelets, and... More

It is what you expect, a good no-frills diner. Great bacon and eggs and scrambles. They even had gluten-free pancakes (did not have) yet the waitress had no idea of the ingredients (it is a mix she stated). It is a great place to stop on the way to Point Reyes Lighthouse. Just expect good food and maybe if you... More

Food is good and healthy, and menu is a relief from the upscale "free-ranging, organically fed" overly pricey, self-conscious usual fare for Pt. Reyes. Waitress is good, but taciturn. Cobbler available irregularly....*sigh*

Local and Organic ingredients.... Little place but constantly busy.. servers not sugary.. they are VERY good though. REAL hot chocolate for the kids with REAL cream. I was jealous. Had just the plain cup of joe but even that was outstanding.. I LOVE good coffee. Huevos Rancheros for me and Orange (?) French Toast w/ fruit compote for the kiddos... More

My favorite breakfast selections are the eggs with a side of trout and the oyster omelet. Outdoor seating when weather permits. Across from the Cowgirl Creamery Cheese Shop. Good service. Funky ambiance.

Enjoyed sitting outside on a beautiful morning. Rustic homey feel. Yummy food. Seemed like a local clientele.

I had really expected a greasy diner, but was super impressed with the fresh ingredients used. I ordered the Eggs Ranchero which contained at least 2 fresh red bell peppers, had I liked bell peppers, I would have given higher ratings. The diner is b=very 50s looking which is endearing and the employees are good, while they may have been... More
