we went there on Sunday morning around 9, it was quite crowded but they seemed to move them in and out quickly and we waited no more than 15 minutes. Menu had lots of breakfast items, enough to please the most discerning tastes. My spinach frittata was huge, lots of yummy cheese, tomato and bacon. Was a bit disappointed that... More

This is a legendary breakfast destination, and rightly so. Expect to have to wait to be seated, as it's mobbed weekday or weekend, but also expect really good food in plentiful quantities.

We stopped for breakfast on our way to San Francisco. You will not be disappointed at Perry's. Sure was a lot of good food. A favorite place for breakfast.

The place is packed. Lines out the door. The parking lot is huge. If you want a seat at the counter you need to hover. Otherwise, put you name on the list and wait. You'll be glad you did. The wait is fairly short as people are moved in and out quickly. Orders are taken and food delivered faster than... More

The food is typical, but good. Nothing fancy. It's a place people come time after time because they feel comfortable. Don't expect a burst of flavor coming out....but nice people working there.

Don't know how many times I passed by this restaurant (later in the afternoon) and thought it was an abandoned diner. Finally went by in the am and saw cars. We decided it must be breakfast/lunch place and stopped in for breakfast. What a suprise! We both had Frittatas (kind of an unfolded omellete) and loved them. They are so... More

Went to Perry's for breakfast with my niece and two great nieces (3yrs and 1yr). We were seated right away on a busy Friday morning. The server came right away with coffee and asked if we needed anything for the babies. The very polite host that seated us brought two high chairs before we could even set our stuff down.... More
