Great Place for Breakfast

My husband and I enjoyed 2 breakfasts at Litas.The coffee was good and the food delicious with good sized portions. A friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Loved the omelette with hash browns. The pancakes were delicious as well.

Had a wonderful breakfast, served by attentive owners. Lots of choices and a large build your own breakfast list. Indoor and outdoor seating. I really appreciated my tea order arriving alongside a big pot of extra hot water and multiple tea choices. They really aim to please!

Lita's has been in other locations throughout the years, but in my experience, she always delivers variety...coffee cup & soda drinks always refilled~just like the cafes we all knew and loved growing up!

Lita's is one of my all time favorite places to eat in Santa Rosa. I actually met my husband here nineteen years ago when Lita's was located on Dutton Ave. The place was a great pick for college students because of the yummy food at great prices. I am happy to say that not much has changed other then Litas... More

This is a down to earth and comfortable place. The food is delicious and very well-priced. We visited for a weekend brunch and enjoyed all the choices we made: my New York steak was prepared perfectly---pink as I like. The fries were nice (maybe a little burned), and the eggs runny and nice. The staff might be a little under-experienced... More

This was a wonderful, unexpected find for us. My husband loves meat and I'm a vegetarian. (Disclaimer: I didn't ask how the veg. burgers were cooked). This was great because it had good choices for both of us. Something about this place struck me as having a "local" Hawaiian flare for those of you who have lived in the islands.... More

The day before when we drove into town, we ended up at IHOP. Yuck. Lita's Cafe is the opposite of IHOP and we loved it. This was a balm to the weary traveler. If I lived anywhere near Santa Rosa I'd be eating there a couple times a week. A good variety of home cooking, generous portions, fresh ingredients, friendly... More
