I brought my visiting friend here for breakfast and we both enjoyed the food, the service and some of the information that was in the pictures on the walls.

This diner was opened many years ago by the current owner's parents. It is located on Tehachapi Blvd., directly across from the train museum. It is a classic small town diner that isn't fancy, but serves delicious, hearty food. This is a Sat or Sun destination spot for Harley riders from LA and other locations. Very popular are the biscuits... More

This is a great choice for breakfast. Your food will look and taste like home cooking. The price is reasonable and the staff make you feel like family. Enjoy the old Tehachapi photos that fill the walls.

Great little hometown cafe with homestyle cooking. We love the club sandwiches, grilled turkey melt, hamburgers, and their breakfasts are always perfect. The staff is super friendly and treat you like family. It also has tons of historical photos on the wall of the Tehachapi area which is neat to look at, and we've been looking at them every time...

If you want basic home cooking, this is the restaurant to go to. They have specials which are usually excellent home made treats. Their pies are super. This is a local hangout, so if that is your thing, join right in. Coffee is always on.

...that's the clientele. With me and a few friends, it is tradition from way back, when it was the only show in town.

Pretty much right in the middle of everything. This a local favorite for good food and friendly folks. Tried the flatiron steak and loved it. "I'll be back."
