Restaurant details
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Cindy's is an institution in Davis. It may have changed owners a few times, but the breakfast is always good. Good place for a family outing. The three sides of tall glass windows make this place bright and airy. On a Sunday morning, it is busy and slightly noisy with patrons and clanking dishes from behind the service counter.

The service is prompt, friendly, & efficient. We ordered biscuit gravy and eggs, beef fajita skillet (see photos). About $8 each. All were well done, hardy, and tasty.

This restaurant morphs into Kow Thai at lunch and dinner. Will have to do Pad Thai next. The restaurants is located on the automobile strip, so bring your car in for service, walk over to Cindy's have a good leisurely meal.

We will be back for breakfast when we have a craving for good old fashion egg Americana.

Dirty restaurant. Food was okay. The service was the best thing about the place.

Tried the Cindy's Retaurant which serves American type breakfasts and then has Thai food the rest of the day. We went for dinner and weren't impressed. Davis has many other Thai restaurants which are better. Nothing seemed really fresh.

Cindy's and Kow Thai have teamed up to provide both typical small local breakfast diner food with fancy Thai food for lunch and dinner. You can even order a side of hash browns to go with your Jungle Curry if you want.

The Tahi food is great for lunch or dinner, maybe the 3rd best Thai of Davis, but if you like things spicy, you'll need to specify that. While the chef does a great job when you request it, dishes otherwise lean a little more towards the sweeter side.

While Kow Thai has brought in fine dinning bowls and plates to match the high quality of their food, they don't save the food from the ambiance created by the tierd old booths and overall diner atmosphere.

Cindy's is something of an oddity; a Thai restaurant, located in a former coffee shop, that also serves American breakfasts all day and American lunches at lunchtime. Somehow, it works. We're hooked.

We've been to Cindy's three times in the last 7 days, enjoying both Thai and American breakfasts. We're Thai food fans and find Cindy's to be really good! Cindy's is equal to or better than some of the fancier Thai restaurants we've patronized in the past. We returned for an American breakfast, just to give Cindy's a genuine evaluation. Again, we were very pleased.

Staff at Cindy's are very friendly, engaging and efficient. Parking is a lot easier than any Downtown Davis restaurant, because Cindy's has its own lot--not to mention its ease of location, just off of the Mace Blvd. exit on Hwy. 80. It also has a To Go menu AND offers free delivery in Davis.

In three visits, we've been transformed from hesitant, disbelieving adventurers, willing to give Cindy's a try despite its physical plant, to enthusiastic, repeat customers.
