We've eaten here over the years and we've never been disappointed, but today's lunch was next level! My husband and I both got burgers, and let me tell you, they were spectacular! Perfectly cooked, and even after getting them to go and taking them to...the waterfront to eat they were still as fresh as if they were handed to us off the grill. And their BUNS! Oh my goodness! I've never had a more fluffy, but sturdy brioche. Perfect for a burger, and griddled to make a stunning crispy accent to the juicy patty. And the people were unbelievably sweet and lovely! They truly seem like they love what they do! Cannot say enough good things. You need to eat here!More

I've always loved their breakfast, but we just had two of the best burgers ever from Home Kitchen Cafe - AMAZING bun with fresh burger cooked to perfection. We couldn't get over how great our lunch was, and the staff was so kind and friendly...as always. Thanks for a terrific experience once again.More

Smooth online ordering process and an equally smooth pick up for our takeout order. The menu here is diverse and it’s a nice option to order a lunch item if you’re not feeling like breakfast. We went with the Bahn Bowl, Home on the Range...with Homemade Oatmeal Bread, and an order of Plain Home Fries. My wife really enjoyed her bowl and my home on the range was perfect. A double thumbs up on the home fries. We have never been disappointed here whether dining inside or ordering takeout during this pandemic.More

Used to love this place. Today ordered food at 9:35. Was told delivery would be 10a-10:15. Showed up at 11:35. Everything was cold. Home fries were a solid mass, hash was greasy, eggs were slimy blobs. Disgusting

Oh yes I remember your order. You gave the wrong address . We called twice and was finally able to get your correct location.

among the very best. Exceptional quality. Friendly too, though lately in these COVID times they've been takeout only.

Placed our online order of Home on the Range, Cinnamon Bun, and Bahn Home for pickup on Friday. This is our must go place for breakfast whenever we stay in the area and they did not disappoint. I had the Home on the Range and...it was a winner. My over easy eggs were cooked perfectly, the corned beef hash was excellent, and my homemade rye toast was tasty. My wife had the Bahn Home and she raved about it. I did get a few bites and it rivals any Bahn Mi that we have had in our travels. The Cinnamon Bun had to wait till the next morning and a quick trip in the microwave freshened it up. We do miss dining here, but lets all help support this special place till we are free of COVID.More

This is a very busy restaurant ... for good reason!! We had to wait to be seated but the food was worth it. Large servings at reasonable prices and a friendly staff. We were hoping to sit upstairs on the balcony where we could get...a view of the water but with such a crowd, we were just happy to be seated. We ended up seated in a lovely side garden with small tables with unbrellas surrounded by sunflowers. A few bees but they didn't bother us. Overall, a nice lunch spot.More
