My husband and I love to get a breakfast on the weekends there. Our favorite is a white egg veggie omelette with fresh fruit instead of potatoes with whole wheat bread. That is because we are currently trying to loose weight. I see a lot of people eating a wide variety of food and enjoying it. Lita's is also dog... More

My first time at Lita's was last weekend and I'd absolutely go back. Staff was attentive, food was fairly priced and they weren't skimpy on servings, and the selection was great. Kids got shakes and pancakes and devoured them, boyfriend got a burger that was almost too big to eat, and I went for the eggs Benedict. Hollandaise sauce was... More

Local hangout for the older crowd, but my son and I fitted right in. Good food. Large portions. Quick service. Fairly priced.

My husband and I enjoyed 2 breakfasts at Litas.The coffee was good and the food delicious with good sized portions. A friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Loved the omelette with hash browns. The pancakes were delicious as well.

Had a wonderful breakfast, served by attentive owners. Lots of choices and a large build your own breakfast list. Indoor and outdoor seating. I really appreciated my tea order arriving alongside a big pot of extra hot water and multiple tea choices. They really aim to please!

Lita's has been in other locations throughout the years, but in my experience, she always delivers variety...coffee cup & soda drinks always refilled~just like the cafes we all knew and loved growing up!

Lita's is one of my all time favorite places to eat in Santa Rosa. I actually met my husband here nineteen years ago when Lita's was located on Dutton Ave. The place was a great pick for college students because of the yummy food at great prices. I am happy to say that not much has changed other then Litas... More

This is a down to earth and comfortable place. The food is delicious and very well-priced. We visited for a weekend brunch and enjoyed all the choices we made: my New York steak was prepared perfectly---pink as I like. The fries were nice (maybe a little burned), and the eggs runny and nice. The staff might be a little under-experienced... More

This was a wonderful, unexpected find for us. My husband loves meat and I'm a vegetarian. (Disclaimer: I didn't ask how the veg. burgers were cooked). This was great because it had good choices for both of us. Something about this place struck me as having a "local" Hawaiian flare for those of you who have lived in the islands.... More
