Great place for breakfast.

Busy creekside cafe with character. Lots of local regulars. Great wait staff. The food is great most of the time. Not completely consistent.

Had a delicious breakfast here; we stayed nearby at the Flamingo and were able to walk over. Breakfast burrito and pancakes were favorites.

Creekside view is possible, but not the reason to have breakfast here. A comfortable, clean, and well organized friendly environment. The food is great and the service even better. We were greeted by the staff as we walked in the door.Homemade Corn beef hash and biscuits were outstanding. Can't wait for the Bermuda delivery.

Tried the eggs Benedict as suggested and they were as good or better than any I have had anywhere! Friendly, local place with lots of window seating. I highly recommend giving Hanks a try. Weekends will no doubt have a line out the door, as it was a busy during my mid week visit.

Only thing going for this place is that it is old. Old style but very very plain. Been there twice hoping for more but always disappointed. The hashbrowns both times were over oiled and nearly raw. Awful place. Santa Rosa mentality? Not sure....

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. The service was excellent: friendly, genuine and efficient with nothing being too much bother in... More

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
