We visited Galvan's Restaurant in our search for the best breakfast restaurant in the Valley. Though they were very busy, we were quickly seated at the peak of the breakfast hours. Before we could even begin looking at the menu, we had water and hot coffee (which was delicious) in front of us. Their breakfast menu seemed endless with many... More

If you love breakfast (served all day), Galvan's is the place for you. Plan to wait for a table on Saturday or Sunday morning, but the crowd is an indication of how good the food is. You won't find fancy food--just filling, hearty diner-style meals served by friendly, efficient staff.

My friend and I had a late breakfast on a Saturday morning. We were seated promptly by a bubbly hostess. Our service was very prompt and attentive. Our coffees were always filled whether it was by our server or another one. My friend ordered the Paul Bunyan omelette which was covered with sausage gravy and had hash browns inside. She... More

I've eaten at Galvan's from time to time for the past 25+ years. I don't know if they have new owners or management, but, the improvements are very noticeable. A friend and I met here for breakfast on a week day. We were seated immediately. A man with coffee appeared right away, and offered us a choice of regular or... More

3 of us had breakfast we couldn't finish - a variety of themed skillets with eggs cooked to perfection. The chucky onions in mine were as sweet as candy. My wife had a gyro, we were all impressed with its quality, too, as good as any Greek restaurant we've been to. Pancakes aren't hard to make, but these were as... More

We had not eaten breakfast and were starved when we arrived well after the noon hour. We were greeted and seated quickly. There were many options for breakfast or lunch - we chose to go with an omelet and skillet. Given we were real hungry...we were able to eat pretty much everything served...but it was a lot! Home town feel,... More

Galvans has a nice menu and good staff. The food is fresh and delicious. The service is very good and everyone is always friendly. The only negative thing I can say is the TV was ridiculously loud with an obnoxious morning talk show.
