We had done some sight seeing, and were looking for a spot to eat. My wife suggested the Rockland Café. We couldn't find it, but then as we drove, we saw the Home Kitchen Café. She looked it up, and said they had really good reviews, why not give it a shot. Once we got past the wait to be seated (can not complain, waiting to be seated is usually a good sign it's worth the wait) we were rewarded with an extensive menu, serving breakfast and lunch all day. They had options that were friendly to nearly any diet. ( I am paleo, my wife is south beach) I got the Home Grande, and she got a Philly Steak and Cheese Sandwich. We loved it, amazing food, very good service in spite of it being so busy. we were quite impressed all the way around, and we will be back!

This small cafe has great food. Normally open for breakfast and lunch except on Tuesday. Sometimes will open for dinner - watch their signs. Breakfast omelets are ample and run about 10 dollars. They use real eggs and fresh ingredients. 'Sticky buns' or 'sinners' are about 5 dollars and a specialty. Fresh pancakes are popular. Specials are often available so watch the blackboards or ask a hostess. Service is friendly. They can be busy so watch for an opportunity - usually better on a weekday. They open at 8 AM. You can sit outdoors on the balcony for a view and fresh air. Parking can be an issue but you can park free on the street nearby.

Each June when we spend time in Rockland we go to Home Kitchen Cafe. My husband says that they have the best Huevos Rancheros in the world. After church we visited the Cafe for a late breakfast/lunch. My fish tacos were wonderful and my husband had his usual. Lindsay, our waitress was helpful and efficient. Highly recommend.

We have been going here since it opened. The food is great. There are numerous typos and misspellings on the menu but don't let that be an indication of the food - it is wonderfully consistent food. The new flooring has definitely brought the noise level down which was so sorely needed. It could still use some ceiling mufflers to absorb some more of the noise.

Service is always good and the wait staff always seems to be smiling and unflustered.

If you come on a weekend, be prepared to wait. The wait is worth it!
