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!!

We popped into Hanks on a recommendation from diners drive-ins and dives. Asking for the recommendation, we had the crabcake eggs Benedict and pecan cinnamon French toast. You can't go wrong making either of those selections and it was one of my favorite breakfast of the whole trip.

It only took a few minutes inside the cafe to realize this was a neighborhood place. Many of the patrons and staff knew each other and were happy to chat. That doesn't mean we weren't treated well ourselves! We had an excellent breakfast and enjoyed the overall friendly vibe. Southerners note that the homemade biscuits here will not be what... More

Found this spot by accident on a recent trip to santa Rosa. It is packed all the time and justifiably so - everything from the initial greeting to service to the food is fantastic. Excellent quality classic breakfast food in large quantities at very reasonable prices. Staff were incredibly courteous - seem to work as a great team and although... More

Hank's Creekside is our favorite breakfast restaurant in all of Sonoma County. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. All of the people we have encountered working there (from the hostess to the bussers, cooks and waitstaff) are friendly, courteous, outgoing and helpful. We often comment to one another that they run the restaurant like... More

We had breakfast here before heading out to tour some wineries and it was the one of the best breakfasts we had on our trip to San Francisco and the wine country. The pancakes were fantastic, as were the biscuits and omelettes. The exterior of the restaurant is nothing special, but do not judge a book by its cover! If... More
