Don't expect gourmet food. This is a place that is heavy on the breakfast potatoes, ham and eggs, and other hearty fare. They don't act like they've heard of low-carb diets, or any of the other fads that come out of cities.
The clientele and the staff are also slightly scary-looking, at least if you come from a relatively prosperous area as we did. Lots of tattoos and facial hair among the people eating, and the staff . . . well, some of them look like they could have been in jail over the weekend.
But the service was excellent, and the food was well-prepared. The place was hopping on a recent Sunday morning. A sign on the door apologized for raising prices because of the minimum wage.
The owner is under 30, purchased it a few months ago by mortgaging everything he had. I was impressed by the efficiency of this place. The breakfast was perfectly serviceable, worth every penny. I got exactly what I came for.

The place was packed at 10:30 AM on a Sunday, that the staff did not even bother to greet ot pay attention to the customers waiting at the door. We were 3 of us waiting for about 15 minutes with nobody showing a sign of awareness. Meantime 2 more groups of about 6-7 people lined up behind us. Finally we walked away and took our business somewhere else

We stopped at the BlackBerry Patch Restaurant before going on to Burney Falls. Service was friendly and fast, food was delicious ... just what we wanted. My husband had a Denver Omelet and I had French Dip. This is a great café type restaurant with a large menu with many selections. We would stop here again if our trips find us in this area.

We descended on this quaint little restaurant just after Thanksgiving with a large family group - our two grown children, their two spouses, our four grandchildren ranging from six to fourteen years old, my wife and me. Ten in all. It didn't matter. We were met with a smile and the genial host rearranged tables and seated us as close together as possible. We were treated as if we were old friends instead of the tourists we were, and the food was fast, well-made, and just right after a day of sight-seeing at the beautiful nearby Burney Falls.

Very busy on a Labor Day morning. Had to wait forever to catch server attention for glass of water. Never asked if we wanted more coffee nor did they check on us after food arrived. Had to ask for our check. Food was yummy prices great. Would go again, just think they were understaffed that day/time.
