Breakfast

Always a good place to go for breakfast. Usually a busy place so expect a wait. Decent prices. The place is hopping.

On a positive note, this restaurant is in an attractive rehabillatated brick in the rail yard section of Santa Rosa. Unfortunately, the food didn't live up to our expectations based on other reviews. I ordered the simplest possible breakfast: soft scrambled eggs, country potatoes and toast. The presentation of the plate was a mess, the potatoes looked as though they'd... More

A friend who lives near the area took me for breakfast to the Omlette Express. Breakfast was classic diner fare with bottomless coffee and attentive service. The huge menu should accommodate any lover of all things egg. Places like this are disappearing fast, so it was good to have this experience.

First, the owner stands outside on weekend greeting customers as they arrive. Plenty of servers for busy restaurant. Corned beef hash was to die for. The corned beef and potatoes were shredded the same size so they cooked evenly. No big chunks. They make their own bread as well. Delicious

Busy restaurant that provides great breakfast and brunch entrees. Service was fast and efficient; everyone is very pleasant and easy going. Lots of regulars; Don Taylor greets everyone at the door, and is very personable. Great for families, those on a budget. Not fancy; just plenty of good food and reasonable price

My daughter and I always make time for breakfasts here when I'm visiting. I've had several of their specialty omelettes and love their regular breakfasts too. The side of salsa is not to be missed – yummy! The thick bacon is always especially good. I can't wait to dine here again.

We went because of the reviews and we're not disappointed. Service and food was awesome and everyone was friendly. We could have split one omelet but I had the homemade corned beef. We will be back.

We eat here often. Consistently great food and excellent service. Often Don, himself, is at the register monitoring the cooking and service. Breakfast, brunch, and lunch are all excellent. The locals know. Go where the locals go.
