I was looking forward to this place, but unfortunately the reputation is better than the actual thing. Started with what we thought was going to be a light beignet type pastry, but it was very "dough-y" and rather oily. It's probably hit or miss, but the rest of my breakfast was a miss - I had the corned beef and... More

You would never know it from the outside but this is place is a hidden treasure in Santa Rosa. They have the basic breakfast fare that is well prepared but then they take it to the next level. Who knew you could have duck confit with scrambled eggs, Their Joe's special with freshly blanched spinach and sauteed lamb is very... More

The Country Benedict with poached eggs was perfect. Homemade hollandaise sauce, mushrooms, lots of crispy bacon, and spinach on a toasted baguette. And then the master piece: the corned beef hash. Real chopped corned beef with hash browns and cheese. Without any doubts, the best corned beef hash breakfast I ever had. Just to say something negative (so you don't... More

I love Dierks! It has a cozy, kitschy dinner/artist vibe inside. Good portions and favor. Home made biscuits and jam are great!

We tried this place based on other TA reviews and were disappointed. When we walked in, the place just didn't look clean. Right by the front door there was a cake of some sort under a dome that looked like it had been there for way too long. The service was just ok and the food was just ok. One... More

I was impressed that they went out of their way to make fresh applesauce to put over my pancakes instead of having to use maple syrup. Over and beyond my expectations......would definitely come again!

Great food! Fast, clean, great service, we all enjoy it! Including our kids. Kids had scramble eggs and the pan cake plate, perfect sizes for a 6 and 4 years old. The duck corn meal was. Wonderful thats what my husband had. The best duck we ever had!!!!And my gravy biscuits with eggs were out of this world!!!!

It is one of the best breakfast offerings I have had! In fact, we went to Dierks two days in a row while were visiting the Santa Rosa area. We were fortunate there was not wait since we were there early enough each day. The menu has such an interesting mix and each item seems personally prepared . . .... More

If you are looking for something different, something other than a Denny's experience, then give the Parkside Cafe a try. How many places can you have Duck Confit for breakfast? It is very small, about twenty tables inside and maybe four outside. Very limited parking on a busy street. Informal relaxed atmosphere. Its twice as expensive as Denny's, but ten... More
