Great place to stop for breakfast

This is a normal stop for me when I'm in Fontana. I've had the Benedict, a few omelets, and some lunch items. All are great which I why I keep going back. Great outdoor seating in the summer. The staff of all pretty young and all very polite.

Would not recommend, was not very good. Was going to eat brunch here but other family members had eaten there that morning and said they would not go back.

Delicious build your own omelet and hash browns. Very good service. The bartender even filled our water bottles, including ice, prior to our walk back to Lake Geneva.

The service was really good at this small restaurant near the Abbey in Fontana. The food was just average, nothing particularly special. They have indoor and outdoor seating.

We stayed across the street, but went here twice for breakfast. I had the same thing 2 days in a row b/c it was so good: the french toast made with home made nut bread. The service was great and we could eat outdoors.

Our large party received excellent service and the food was delicious! It was a quieter restaurant, perfect for our group to hear conversations.

Novak's boasts of being the best breakfast on the planet. Somewhat of a tall order to live up to! I can say it was not the best on the planet. Coffee was weak and tasteless. My food was tepid at best. The biscuits seemed stale. If I was alone and did not want to offend my hosts who I was... More

Very nice breakfast. The patio area was well maintained with giant clumps of flowers lining the fence. Service was friendly. Would be a regular customer if I lived closer.

Bottom line is, I found a piece of plastic in my sandwich. Albeit I was nearly finished but when it was pointed out to the waitress, I received a mumbled half baked sorry. Health and safety came to mind, not very hygienic.
