A very extensive breakfast and lunch menu are the hallmarks of the Home Kitchen Café. Serving sizes are generous enough so that we automatically knew half of our sandwiches were going to be coming home with us. Our Reuben and pastrami sandwiches were great. Hopefully, the next time we can try their breakfast menu. The place can get busy as... More

My wife and I stopped in the cafe on our way through Rockland and the lunch was terrific. I had a BLT on homemade toast and the best homefries I've ever eaten. The bacon (not your normal store brand) thick and crispy was generously heaped on the wheat toast. The homefries were real sliced potatoes with onion, three kinds of... More

We had always wanted to stop and eat at the Home Kitchen but it always looked so busy we never stopped. This day we had some time and amazingly we got a table with only a 10 minute wait. The waitress was very nice and the breakfast was just excellent. I had an omelet and my wife had the eggs... More

In Rockland for the weekend and made several trips to the Home Kitchen Cafe. The HUEVOS RANCHEROS are to die for, spicy, bold, perfectly cooked eggs and those hand pressed corn tortillas make it perfect. The wife had a corn beef and Swiss Omelet special with so much corn beef we thought we were at a NY Deli, the combo... More

We've dined here several times and have yet to be disappointed. The food is so good and they have something for everyone. The breakfasts & burgers are always a favorite and the uniqueness of flavors used make it extra good! This is not your average restaurant. It's very casual with a high energy atmosphere. It's always busy and for good... More

I ate here one day driving through Rockland. It was clean and the service was great! Then my food came out. It was very tasty and the coffee was great too!

This is a bustling place with good food and good service. It has character and provides a nice breakfast experience for one visiting Rockland. We had French toast and Ranchos Hueveros. Good coffee and good food. Lots of life in this place.

We arrived at Home Kitchen at 7:30 AM on 07/12/14, in anticipation of a pleasant breakfast, as we had recently eaten breakfast here several times. When we arrived, there were no seats available, and we (party of 3) were the only ones waiting to be seated. There was a very clearly visible sign stating that the “hostess will seat you”.... More

The menu is extensive with breakfast available all day (3:00). I had the fish tacos which were in their homemade corn tortillas and were excellent. My husband had a lobster club club with homemade bread which he raved about. I would say to try and hit lunch early. We got there at 11:30 and easily got a seat on the... More
