“Great Breakfast spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a great place for Breakfast. We went for the first time recently and now my husband is obsessed with their steak and eggs. We will return for sure to try more things on the menu. The service is great as well as the prices are reasonable for good food.

“Top notch breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a great place for breakfast, across the street from a Best Western. They have lots of items on the menu and even have Eggs Benedict 12 different ways. The hash browns were the best ever. The only advice is to avoid the Bloody Mary or Mimosa because of the very cheap liquor they use.

“Comfort breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Famous mimosas. Exactly what you expect when you want an American comfort breakfast: big omelets, home fries, pancakes and waffles. Casual diner atmosphere.

“Best Breakfast in Town-be ready to wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

There's a reason why you always find a huge line here. They serve the best breakfast in town. Frequented by locals and not-so-locals, Bill's cafe is THE place to go for brunch any day during the week. I love the bread pudding french toasts, chilaquiles, california benedicts, biscuits and gravy and ohh the mimosa is so good. The staff is always friendly and go above and beyond to make sure you have a good experience and return. We moved to San Jose, specifically Willow Glen area a couple of months ago and we've been to Bill's over 10 times already. It's worth the wait and once you are in your table the food doesn't take long go arrive.
