“Terrific experience with a party of 25!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2010

On Saturday, 11/13/10 we had a party of 25 for breakfast at the Omelette Express to celebrate two birthdays while we were all in town for a relative's wedding. We had called a few weeks in advance to reserve space, and confirmed it again that morning.
We were greeted at the door and our table was ready. Our waitress (wish we could remember her name--we were too busy talking with each other) was friendly and quick to get the drink orders started. She took our breakfast orders as soon as all of the drinks had been delivered.
Because the rest of the restaurant was so busy we thought it might take a while to get our orders, but the first plates were being served in less than 15 minutes, maybe even less than ten. We were really surprised at the speed.One of the guys in the party said he counted five cooks in the kitchen.
Everyone was very happy with the quality of the food and the speed of the service! Some even went back on Sunday before heading out of town.
Thanks, Omelette Express!

“huge servings, fun environment, prices ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2010

We were lucky that Sunday morning, the lines were not too long. The guy outside taking names was really nice and even checked on folks later at their table. Our particular server was a little grouchy, or at least didn't say much. No small talk, no refils of coffee or water until requested. The omelettes were huge and tasty, french toast was pretty good. However, the salsa was awesome! Practically ate the whole container. The prices were a bit on the high side, but there was so much food i never did eat lunch that day, so I guess it's 2 meals for one price.

“Best Breakfast and Lunch in the Wine Country!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2010

I love going to Omelette Express, in fact I've been coming here for almost the 30 years of their existence. What's great is you know you are going to get a great meal everytime and quickly I might add. On the weekend, you may have to wait in line, but time passes quickly as the owner Don Taylor tells stories and jokes. The restaurant is very family friendly and friendly on the pocketbook. My favorite is the #5 Omelette for breakfast and the Hamburgers for lunch. This restaurant is truly an old Santa Rosa Institution and should not be missed when traveling to the Wine Country!

“Great place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

We enjoyed our breakfast. Delicious, large fresh omelettes-all different kinds on the menu. Size is large so two people can split it. Good coffee. (Hint: across the street on the left by about 100 meters is the Santa Rosa tourist office and they pass out stickers for a free beverage at this restaurant). Located just 5 minute walk from the Hyatt with quite a few interesting stores next to the restaurant.

“Wonderful omelettes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2009

We went to this restaurant both days we were in the area. This is located in the renovated railroad district and was convenient to our hotel, the Hyatt.

The breakfast was absolutely delicious. I had an omelette with ham, onions and bell peppers that was out of this world delicious. There are many different types of omelettes to suit many different needs. The omelettes come with sour dough, which was the best sour dough I've ever had. I washed that down with freshly squeezed orange juice, and, of course, coffee.

Everything was delicious, the waitresses were friendly if rushed, and the restaurant was reasonably attractive. All in all a great place...
