This is a wonderful breakfast and lunch venue that has "beatnicks" ambiance. Breakfasts and coffee here are my favorite. But beware .. it can be crowded and you should not be in a hurry. But patience is rewarded with delicious food.

I have enjoyed breakfast here on several occasions over the past few years. The food is tasty and reasonably priced, the service is good, and the variety of coffees is good, with free self-service refills. They have large gathering areas for groups and outdoor seating as well. Highly recommend for breakfast.

After, or before, a hike in Bidwell Park, a great place to have coffee or breakfast or lunch. A really pleasant, dog friendly, outdoor eating area. Clean, efficient and a very nice selection of dishes to choose from. Close to the freeway for those traveling through town on the way north or south.

I come here quite often with friends, and mostly for the simple house coffees. But the occasional breakfast or specialty sandwich or salad is a real treat in Chico. The breakfasts rank up there with the very best of our town (see other reviews of Morning Thunder, Sin of Cortez, and Hotel Diamond's new 220 Restaurant under Michael's oversight) and... More

Beatniks is a very well operated. The service and items offered are very, very good. Prices are not necessarily low, but value and consistency is well worth the cost.

Ordered the Veggie Omelet, an Americano, and French Toast for my son. Service was quick. All the ingredients tasted fresh, nicely prepared. The portions were large. The folks who work there are friendly and helpful. Easy to park, and the restaurant has lots of spacious seating, indoors and out. The atmosphere is relaxed. I will definitely go back.

Meet your buds here for a coffee or breakfast on the patio. Outside or inside dining. Good selection of coffee drinks and good menu for breakfast or lunch.

Visiting Chico again to see my mom, and always a must visit is Beatniks for their variety of Benedict breakfast choices. I always go for the Natural though - because it's low carb with tons of protein (especially if you swap the potatoes for their delicious veggie hash). The patio is delightful as is their attentive staff.
