“GREAT OLD SCHOOL DINER!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

One of the best breakfast spots on earth. Real fresh cooked to order, extra large portions. We sat at the counter, watching the two cooks work the flat top. Corned beef hash was excelent, lots of very tasty corned beef. The omelets were so large they could feed two.

“The kind of neighborhood place you want in your neighborhood”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

We were in San Rafael and looking for a breakfast place. Lundy's looked the part, nearly filled with customers even though it was late for breakfast and early for lunch. I had a Polish sausage omelet that's good for everything except keeping your weight down. My wife had a ham and cheese omelet that was equally tasty. The food is very good, the portions are larger than they ought to be for those with little will power, and the staff is helpful. It's full of wood and tables that look like they've been there since the Kennedy Administration.

“The perfect little old diner. Don't expect mimosas and linen.”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

Total diner - in a good way. We sat at the counter where we could watch our huge meal be prepared by a couple of really friendly guys. The whipped up real (not canned) corned beef hash and overstuffed omelets - I'm pretty sure nobody ever walks away hungry. Good biscuits and gravy = Great hangover recovery remedy.

“Exactly what a local breakfast diner should be”
Reviewed April 25, 2008

I stopped by for breakfast this morning and had a wonderful New York Steak and Eggs. The staff was very nice.

The atmosphere is local, the metered street parking is free until 8am.

The coffee is very good.

I enjoy sitting at a long counter at local restaurants.

When in San Rafael this is where I'll have breakfast.

Oh, the prices where very reasonable. My breakfast with coffee was only $12.00!
