My family and I have loved the food, the atmosphere, and the family friendly service that Hank and Linda have provided over the years. Good coffee, half orders, toys for the kids and always great food! It is a local favorite that I would recommend to any traveler. Parking can be a bit challenging but it is a wonderful cafe,...

This gem has been here for many years. Family run and it shows the pride of ownership. We can walk from our home, 1 + miles away. Love the morning walk to get our appetites up. The menu is varied and always specials on the board. Biscuits homemade, great pancakes per my husband. I love the potatoes! You do not... More

We stayed in wine country for one week and ended up eating at Hank's for 5 out of 7 days! This breakfast was so good. Loved the French toast, omelettes, sausage, pancakes etc. I could go on and on. The staff were great as well. Very pleasant experience in a cute cafe with delicious food. Missed it this morning (back... More

Great food and service here, my favourite is the plump sausage and eggs, its not like the thin breakfast links most places serve up.

We decided to wait the 20 minutes for a table instead of going to the IHOP across the street as we heard great things about the breakfast. Hank's did not disappoint. I was with a large group and everyone was satisfied with their meal. Plus the service was great! Very friendly! Worth the wait and the hype!

After moving from the area six years ago and already being disappointed at other favorite stops, Hanks was as delightful as ever! Food was wonderful, server was wonderful. Glad to know that sometimes you can go home again.

The restaurant is a throwback to the good old days. You walk in a and you're immediately greeted by a friendly hostess and the restaurant is packed with loyal locals and you'll quickly find out why. Your waitress is right on top of your order and the coffee is endless. You're creek side and the dining area/room is full of... More

Friendly welcoming staff, cozy Creekside Café. Looks like a house. Nice selection and portions. Great omelettes, biscuits and gravy, French toast, and huevos rancheros. Good size portions.
