The breakfasts here are really good and the service is really good. I live across the street which makes it ever so convenient. Lots of parking, too. Can be crowded especially on the weekends but they move people in and out pretty quickly. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

Great service, great food, and good value. Never had a thing I didn't like. Generous portions. All fresh and most items are house made (croutons, dressing, potato chips). Worth a trip if you're in the area.

My local favorite place for a hearty breakfast or lunch. Good family place for kids. Lots of healthy choices of oats, friut or vegetables for the traditional comfort food of potatoes and toast. Weekends can be crowded and sometimes may need to wait 10-20 minutes. They make a traditional great BLT sandwhich. Owners work there and have had the same... More

I was meeting relatives from out of state on August 4, 2016. I checked Orinda restaurants since they were staying there. This popped up with good YELP reviews. We were VERY impressed with the food quality and amount!! Great customer service from the seating person who held a table for us and from the delightful waitress who could not have... More

I'm afraid we have not sampled a lot of their menu because we just can't get past the Corned Beef Hash. It is fabulous!

Enjoyed breakfast with family, including 2 children. The selection was perfect for all tastes and quality of the food was excellent. We had waffles, hash browns(not out of a can), scrambled eggs and toast. Everyone was happy!!

Very popular place, located in an unprepossessing small shopping mall and it is not easy to find without good directions. Not really a place for business travelers, but if leisure travelers are visiting friends in the area, this is good place to stop. I debated about whether to review this restaurant on TripAdvisor but decided to do so when an... More
