Was out and about this morning and based on reviews here I thought I'd give this place a shot. Absolutely the best breakfast I've had since I moved to Santa Rosa. Small simple diner. Nothing fancy. Typical diner lunch food. But done exceedingly well. I ordered my usual diner breakfast: chicken fried steak with gravy, soft scrambled eggs and hash... More

A very popular breakfast spot on Santa Rosa Avenue but I still have no idea why after two visits. The restaurant is very homey but we found the food to be very ordinary and the hash browns to be too salty both times we ate there. I won't try it again but they must be doing something right to attract... More

Absolutely loved Dierks Parkside Cafe - a warning - Dierks is not on any signs that we could see; just Parkside Cafe. My husband had the Friday morning Joes, and I had the Sonoma Duck Confit. This is gourmet breakfast without the fussiness or the prices. It's a smaller diner, nothing fancy and it was a little chilly so the... More

This restaurant is busy but there is a good reason for it. The food is great. There is plenty of it and the service is prompt. The place is busy but we were seated right away and the coffee was there practically before we were seated. The menu is extensive and everyone in our group was satisfied with the selection.... More

I was from out of town, and my daughter brought me here for breakfast. There was a line waiting to get in which is a good sign! Small little parking lot so we parked a few blocks down and walked. LOVED Dierk’s Corn-beef Hash: grilled corn beef, cheese Hash browns and eggs. YUM! and a mimosa. Enough said.

Even before the food there is the owner and the staff, who are all very friendly and efficient. The owner, Mark, is an exceptional human being, so if he is in, say hello. Breakfast and lunch are served hot and semi fast. A great way to start the day if you live in Santa Rosa of if you are visiting... More

It was still pouring on our little four day NoCal trip when we dropped in on Dierks for breakfast on the last day. Excellent food, Great service, fair prices for what you get! You have to try this place out. Don't let a little storm rain on your breakfast parade!

When I say full, I am referring to the parking lot, all of the tables,and our plates. We really enjoyed the good food and unfortunately couldn't finish the large portions. The special "Mama's pull part" is very good. Best hash browns I ever had - when was the last time someone commented on hash browns. Another great local hangout in... More

Sometimes it is a bit crowed but that is because it is so popular.. Worth the wait though. The corned beef hash w/ scrambled eggs is bomb.
