This was my second time here for lunch. I sit outside for fresh air and because it's quieter. My girlfriend suggested that the first time we came here. Nothing on the menu jumped out at me so I ordered a boring turkey breast, melon, fennel and arugula salad. It was fabulous. The flavors all worked together and it was great.... More

I stopped here after a few trips to town for business. You don't see a bunch of cars, because the parking is in back. I was surprised and delighted to enter with a group of locals heading for morning coffee and breakfast. I didn't get the young ladies name that waited on me, but she pitched it back to the... More

We went to this café when first coming to Brentwood when choices were minimal, but it's still a hot spot and still better than most. Good portions for the price. Won't leave here hungry

I have been coming here for years. Their breakfast is awesome especially the Italian Scrambler. The portion is huge and can easily be split with a 2nd person, or make extra burrito to take home for second meal. Service is fast, waitresses are pleasant and food is consistently good. If I had to say anything negative about it it would... More

Have visited this place 3 times within the past few months. Never seem to get my order right or cook a steak correctly. Disappointing for a steakhouse.

Old style restaurant, great food, wonderful staff - large portions! You'll meet up with local farmers and everyday brentwood families! Always greeted by owners and chef!

Food and service always good. Just a little cramped too many tables squeezed together. Also very dark and a little spooky. They have a decorative piece of wood covering the kitchen service window so you cant see the cook. you can just his hands when he places a plate on the counter. I don't know why(???) Kinda scary...

When I am hungry for fried chicken or a great soup, this is my "go to" place. The service is great and the food always hot.

Great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!! Old style diner with outstanding and friendly service. The owner actually walks around and asks how things are!
