Great burgers, even for vegetarians.

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... read 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

My wife ordered a side of fruit, one of the choices, and it was really nice. I had a side of cole slaw which was just how I like it. We... More
