Like Home Cooking

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."

This place is definitely a step back in time. Upon entering you see the old style diner bar with bar stools to your left and the old diner decor with vinyl/aluminum seating to your right. As you walk into the main dining area, you will walls covered in Tehachapi's history. Loads of black and white images of the town's beginnings.... More

Average. Clean and plenty of servings. Never that busy which concerns me. The employees are always friendly and willing to help you.

This may not be the best dinner in the area, but they serve honest food, they are honest people and they let you look into the honest world of Tehachapi. They have picture of aircrafts dated back a lot of years. I think their closeness to Edward Air Base presented these history. The tritip lunch special that I got is... More
