“You had me @ 'Hash'-lo”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

K, 1st off I had a Heavenly-Hash experience the wkend of Oct 20th. They had a Corned Beef Hash special & I MUST express how lovely it was. Cream & Tarragon not usually found in traditional Hash AND a splash of cream to make it a truly Heavenly experience!!! Someone was feelin creative & loving that day. And IF there IS such a thing as awards for BEST carrot soup...hands down it goes to Rick & Ann's!!! My Mother & Father-in-law joined us for a 50th wedding Anniversary breakfast (although never eating here before) & thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Going so far as mentioning it a month later over the phone during a long distance conversation! (We are humble residents in Palm Springs, So Cal) A round of applause! We NEVER miss this place when we're in town!

Hi Aron,

Congratulations on your mother and father-in-law's 50th anniversary! We are glad you decided to celebrate the occasion with us. We make sure to cook with fresh, seasonal ingredients so that all our dishes taste special. Accordingly, we are thrilled to hear you loved the seasonal tarragon in our corned beef hash special. We will make sure to pass along your compliments to the chef.

Thank you for your kind review. We hope to see you back again the next time you visit Berkeley!

Take care,
Rick & Ann, Owners

“Great food, nice presentation, however service took a little while”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Went during the week for a late breakfast, there was some wait, but only two of us so we got a place relatively quickly. Service took a little while to take order and to produce bill. Otherwise very nice menu creations, well presented and tasty. Not ideal for a business lunch under time constraints, also relatively lively background of conversations. Idea for gathering of family&friends.

“Cute little place!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We have had breakfast and dinner here. Service is always very friendly and efficient. For dinner I had the Chicken Pot Pie - not your Swanson's Pot Pie - this was warm and homey! One son had the pot roast - loved it! The other son had the fresh fish - loved it! The Mac & Cheese looked sooooo good - I'm getting that next time!

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear you and your family had a wonderful experience dining here. We cook with fresh, organic and locally sourced ingredients so that none of our dishes taste like they come from a freezer. Looking forward to your next visit! We will make sure to have a hot plate of Mac & Cheese ready for you.

All the best,
Rick & Ann, Owners
