Perfect for breakfast in Santa Rosa

We chose Hank's on the basis of other recommendations and were not disappointed. Having eaten the previous day at a rather more chi-chi establishment (with portion sizes and prices in inverse proportions) Hank's proved to be a more down to earth, honest to goodness experience.

Ate here twice in the week we were in Santa Rosa. Although they don't have a children's menu they will make up a plate of whatever the kids want. Staff was friendly. Food was good.

Awesome! We got avocado on the side, which was a great idea. I forgot to ask for scrambled eggs because I'm not a fan of over easy egg, but it was good anyway. Great service. Great food. Friendly staff and locals.

Solid, if unspectacular food. I showed up early on a Saturday morning a little worse for the wear and was seated immediately. The good was just the cure I needed. A pretty standard menu executed perfectly is always a good sign. Can get lines later in the morning, so beware.

Probably the most popular breakfast place in Santa Rosa, though DIerk's Parkside might tie with them in popularity. The difference for me is there are a few dishes I really love at Dierk's, and hardly anything I don't love at Hank's. The staff here is friendly and helpful. The coffee is just OK, but that is almost the only thing... More

Excellent food, but place is very crowded, tables close together, so it gets rather noisy! We stopped in around 10:45 a.m. on a Monday morning; place was packed - wait was about 10 mins. Seated between party of 4 and party of 2 with 6 inches of space between tables --- conversation was limited with husband across the table. Would... More

We went here for breakfast after passing through Santa Rosa for the night. The reviews were spot on- this place is quaint and delicious! The eggs Benedict were the best I've ever had (go with crab cake option) and the red potatoes and onions were cooked to perfection! Friendly staff! I would go back in a heartbeat. Not a lot... More

Hank and Linda, the owners, are wonderful in this family run restaurant. Often crowded but well worth the wait! Patrons return often because of the food and the ambiance. Weekend breakfast and brunch is always packed -- go anyway, you will be happy you waited!

For a small cafe with little outside presence their breakfast packs a punch. Thankfully we got there before the rush and didn't have to wait for a table. Service was fast and friendly although the food took a while to arrive, but It was worth the wait. My sausage with egg and hash was very delicious and all cooked perfectly,... More
