I've eaten here twice and both times have been a great and positive trip for me and my party that was with me. Great food, giant cinnamon rolls, and nice staff/owner.

Have eaten there many of times and the food never lets me down. Their Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs is by far one of my favorite for the breakfast menu. For lunch it would have to be the French Dip or the Club Sandwich that I like the most.

Typical diner service, typical diner atmosphere, typical diner food, with the exception of one monster sized cinnamon rooler that can be share by multiple diners.

Enjoyed the Senior dinner of Fish and Chips. Still a lot of food - we both took enough back to eat for dinner another night! Also picked up a Cinnamon Roll for breakfast. This is the biggest Cinnamon Roll I've ever seen. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. Special requests were handled with smiles.

The breakfast section is solid with large portions, unique dishes and many old time standbys. The wait staff is friendly and helpful; the restaurant itself is spacious and clean. If your staying at the Ramona Valley Inn it is within walking distance (2 blocks) on the same side of the street. If your driving Hwy 78 into the hinterlands of... More

Extremely large servings! My husband couldn't finished two of their giant pancakes! My cinnamon roll French toast was delectable and made me want to return the next day! Busy but we got a seat right away around 9 (hey we were on vacation!) free parking, nice waitresses. No one rushing us out the door. Quality food.

This cafe on the main street of Ramona is famous for its huge cinnamon rolls. After a satisfying lunch, we took l of the rolls back to our resort for nibbling later in the day. The food was good with large amounts. We opted for the senior lunch with a smaller portion for older people like us. The service was... More

This place is a nice reminder of old school diners complete with very friendly service & lots of comfort food choices. I enjoyed the country friend steak. My friend had the chicken cordon blue which is suppose to be a specialty item. We both thought it was way over cooked & dry, although you could tell it had a good... More

Our family went to Ramona Cafe yesterday as an early Mothers Day celebration. Super impressed with the staff and their friendliness. Drinks remained topped off and the food was served in a timely manner. Love the hometown feel. Will definitely return again. Bonus: Sonja, the owner, sent out an email that shared during the month of May, you receive $5... More

After staying nearby my husband drove into Ramona to pick up rolls in the morning for us. Saw them on Diners Driveins and Dives. Nuked for 45 seconds and mmmm. Delicious! They are large. One can feed 2 or 3 people.
