This cafe is something that is not usual to find in a small town like Santa Rosa. The level of sophistication and quality of its dishes are more typical of a gourmet coffee from a big city. It is definitely a place to take a breakfast or brunch if you spend the night in Santa Rosa. Although it is a... More

Come early and still expect a wait. But it's worth the pull-a-parts and the fried chicken sandwich. Oh and the benedict. Always.

If you are a fan of diners, this is one to add to your list. The menu was outstanding. I had the chicken fried steak and eggs. My wife had a couple of eggs atop a veggie bowl. Is obviously stayed more mainstream. The veggies were a bit much for breakfast about half way through for my wife, but were... More

We love the breakfast menu and the food is great. There are a few tables outside so we can bring our terrier with us (she gets a bowl of water served to her). Very friendly servers. Very busy on the weekends and sometimes a waiting list but worth the wait.

Came here because of the reviews and it was on point. I ordered the breakfast tortilla and it was delicious. They asked if I wanted avocado, which I agreed, and it made the meal. I should have known, however, that they would charge me a couple bucks more. Meal might have been $12 but it was fabulous. Tell waitress to... More

Do not let the quirky exterior of this place put you off. Dierks makes for a tasty and fun dining experience Food: We went for breakfast. Big servings of very good breakfast favorites all around. Ambiance: This place feels 100% mom and pop and it’s great. Think the exact opposite of Denny’s generic. You don’t typically go to a local-favorite... More

I really love this place for breakfast. I've been here a handful of times and I've never been disappointed. First, the coffee is really good--bold and pretty strong, but not sour. I like their savory stuff the most, with the veggie hash being my all-time favorite. Perfectly steamed cauliflower and other vegetables with some eggs and hash browns served in... More

They are only open till 2 or 2:30 and both times we came in late for lunch. Our waitress was rude and let us know they were closing soon. Her attitude made us feel like we needed to eat fast. The tuna salad is a generous portion and delicious but the attitude of the young wait staff has kept us... More
