“Best breakfast spot in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

If you can get in when it's not packed it's awesome; but it's usually really packed with a long wait. The food is awesome and the service is good. Wish the place was bigger with better parking.

“What a great breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

You can usually expect a good meal when there's a line waiting to get in. So was the case with Parkside Cafe. After waiting 15-20 minutes we were seated attended to promptly by friendly staff. The inside of the restauant is rustic, but the food is delicious.

“A breakfast jewel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012 via mobile

What a neat place! Nothing fancy, just great food! We had breakfast. A huge variety of omelettes or whatever you like including a delightful poached egg salad. Obviously, a place recognized by the locals as the parking was a challenge. Well worth the effort though. They do lunch... for another time.

“Just a great meal every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Parkside Cafe is one of my favorite places for breakfast or lunch. The menu has many of the great dishes that you expect in a cafe: burgers, omlettes, etc., but what really sets it a part are the many unique dishes; such as, the Butanese red rice salad (delicious), the smoked turkey salad, the many vegetarian dishes, and the very freshest ingredients grown locally in Sonoma County. Although parking in front of the cafe can be difficult, just park farther up near Luther Burbank Gardens. A great idea! After eating your meal, go for a walk through Luther Burbank Gardens, a lovely place and even take a docent lead tour. Food and flowers. What a lovely combination.

“Deliously unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Found this restaurant via Tripadvisor on the way to Eureka. Very delious meals! I had the cornbeef hash which had a lot of beef inside the potatoes and was really good. My wife had the venison chili omlette which she thoroughly enjoyed. The staff is very friendly and we highly recommend the restaurant.
