Real homemade breakfast. The staff is great and adds to the enjoyment of your meal. They make you feel at home from the minute you walk in the door.. The food is great with lots of choices. Make sure you try something with Hollandaise sauce. Get a table, if you can, with a creek view. A good way to start... More

Hank's Creekside Cafe is one of the best places to each Breakfast / Brunch in Sonoma County. They do the classics like french toast, eggs benedict, omelets, and home made corned beef hash just to name a few. They are so busy that sometimes you have to wait a little bit for a table, but boy is it worth the... More

Very good service with nice people and good food. It's where the locals go so us vacationers can't go wrong. Had a good breakfast to start the day. What's our recommendation: my wife said, "let's come back again".

Featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, this place is known for its homemade corned beef and corned beef hash. Cooks and staff are always friendly and the food is excellent. It's not on the menu, but I order an omlette with corned beef and cheddar cheese. And it is one of the best breakfasts I've had. My wife really enjoyed... More

Our 40 min drive is worth it. We keep coming back for delicious Eggs Florentine and California Benedict and side of sausage. With big portions and good price no wonder the place gets busy.

We visited, based on the reviews and ranking, and were not disappointed. Waitstaff was efficient and friendly, turning over tables without making you feel rushed. The Benedict was "cook-tip" worthy (there is a jar on the corner of the bar for that purpose) and the burrito stayed neatly intact throughout consumption. Their "half-portion" option even applies to the specials and... More

I love this kind of place, so we came for a late breakfast. We were not disappointed. At the server's suggestion, I tried the corned beef hash and cottage potatoes, both of which were very good. I really appreciated getting an extra pot of water with my tea. My spouse really liked his eggs and hash browns but thought his... More

We visit the Santa Rosa area once a year and always make time for one breakfast at Hanks. I am partial to the scramblers and my wife lives the crab cake benedict.

What a great find. Strongly encourage you to visit. We were there at 9am on a Sunday morning. It was busy but the staff was in excellent mode and mood. The food was fantastic. Hard to believe that fast can maintain this level of flavor. Well done folks!!
