Bills lived up to its reputation with a tasty selection of pancakes, waffles, french toast etc; the coffee was great as well. Tables have comfortable seating and service is attentive. Portion sizes are large, but dishes are priced accordingly. The parking lot is small relative to the patron traffic; though street parking is available.

At last, after a week in San Jose, I have discovered a great place to eat. I had the smoked salmon eggs Benedict, and it was truly awesome. Poached eggs cooked to perfection, and a lovely Hollandaise sauce. Highly recommended.

Recommended by our daughter... Great EVERYTHING. From normal pancakes, orange juice, waffles, sausages, bacon... To more exotic like crabmeat Benedict & Almond Joy pancakes.
BEST Lyonnaise potatoes EVER. Loved our waitress. Called ahead but do not take reservations. Once seated, great service, great food, quick check out. Open for breakfast & lunch only.
Only complaint... Honestly too much food. Some "mini" portions but need more mini.

We fight the crowds and visit Bill's often. The breakfasts are big, satisfying and delicious. The outdoor patio is fun to sit at and enjoy the great Willow Glen weather. Parking can be a little tight and the restaurant is always heavily attended but don't let that keep you from trying Bill's. It's worth it.

Had a Sunday morning breakfast that was better than most restaurant breakfasts. Service was excellent, food was good, above average, but with a couple of minor shortfalls. Wife and I shared the Southern Skillet. Sausage was flavorful and eggs was cooked just right. Little niggles, not enough gravy made the dish on the too dry side. Gravy could have had a little more pepper or just a dash of hot sauce. Biscuit and hash browns were also very good.
