“Great spot for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We were in town for a quite visit to see Chico State. On our way out of town we needed a quick stop with some hot food options.

I had a breakfast bagel with bacon. Husband had a carrot cake type muffin. The coffee was very good. Sevice excellent. We saw a CHP guy come in while we were there. We knew then that we were in the right place for a good meal and coffee. :)

“Very relaxing coffee house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Whenever we're in the mood for a nice relaxing place to sit, have a meal, and enjoy a cup of coffee, this is the place we go. This local cafe offers several flavors of coffee, a nice selection of breakfast and lunch foods, and don't forget the pastries and sweets! With an easy going friendly staff and nice dark-stained maple tables, I feel comfortable spending my mornings/afternoons here. We especially like to sit next to the windows, play cards and drink coffee (as we enjoy breakfast). The natural light is a nice break from the typical dark cafe setting.

While the surrounding view around the restaurant leaves a bit to be desired, this location DOES offer outdoor seating to satisfy a beautiful sunny day (and of course to help with a full inside). Something about this place really shouts "Chico" more than the others. If you haven't already, I'd invite you to give it a try!

“Best Breakfast in Chico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

On our last day in Chico, convinced my sister to go to Beatniks. Best breakfast in Chico. I had Jack Kerouac Fluorentine and my wife had Bongo Benedict (see photos). Great atmosphere. Flavorful House blend coffee. Service was outstanding. Food was delicious. (toast was cold - but NBD).

“Worth A Visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

I go to Beatniks several times a month for coffee and or breakfast with friends. They have a good breakfast menu and great coffee. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere nice and a friendly staff. The local art on the walls changes frequently. Feels like a San Francisco Coffee House of the 60s.
