“Great casual dining spot”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

This one of chef Rodney Worth's restaurants in the area. This location features casual dining - sandwiches and salads mainly. Ive had a number of things here, but find that the Smoked Chicken Salad Sandwich - a signature dish here - is unique and too delicious to pass up on every visit. (oh, they have awesome fries here too - crispy on the outside and just right.) Although this location is casual dining, they do serve alcohol, which is nice for a Sunday brunch or dinner. Ive not been here for breakfast, but the menu looks fabulous! The ambiance is simple - an indoor dining room and an outdoor courtyard with tables. I love the courtyard - great place for lunch or dinner on a beautiful day. The service is efficient and friendly. It can get busy at peak hours, so plan your visit accordingly.

“Good food, cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We usually go to the Courtyard for breakfast. We've noticed it is getting harder to find a table. It is nice to go to a local place for breakfast rather than a chain. I usually get an omelet which never disappoints. My husband once got the green eggs and ham and would not recommend that one.

“Very disappointing”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Food is mediocre. Taco salad very plain, not enough dressing and poor flavor. Artichoke very small, undercooked and no flavor. Ribs were tasteless, looked and tasted boiled, gamey flavor. Inexcusable when there are so many barbecue rib places in the East Bay. This place was previously owned by a woman from Alamo, now has changed hands, quality has suffered.

“Wonderful eating experience”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

My husband and I came in for breakfast. We sat in the patio area on a beautiful sunny day. The food was great. Loved the spicy fried potatoes, Alamo omelet and the pineapple scone I just had to try. The Skinny vanilla Latte I had was really great as well.
Our server was Sandy a real fun and down to earth waitress who gave us the best service!
When we were getting ready to leave and they new we were traveling far to go home they brought my husband out a to-go glass of iced tea without us asking for one. Who does that?!
Can't wait to go back!

“Good solid, consistent food”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Yummy chicken salad sandwich made with roasted chicken, pears, cherries, and pecans, served on toasted wheat berry bread....served with a side salad with creamy balsamic vinaigrette or French fries. The menu had appetizers, entree salads, and sandwiches of chicken, beef, and seafood...excellent choices.
You can eat inside or choose the outdoor patio.
One of the ladies I was with commented that she thought it was loud. Heck, there were 5 of us...we could have been the loud ones! That won't stop me from giving it an all over rating of 5 stars.
Sister restaurant is The Little Pear in Blackhawk Plaza...same menus
