The day before when we drove into town, we ended up at IHOP. Yuck. Lita's Cafe is the opposite of IHOP and we loved it. This was a balm to the weary traveler. If I lived anywhere near Santa Rosa I'd be eating there a couple times a week. A good variety of home cooking, generous portions, fresh ingredients, friendly staff, very reasonable prices, some outdoor seating. Don't be put off by the shopping center it's in. We drove all the way to Monterrey on our hearty breakfast from Lita's.
