We stopped for breakfast on a Friday morning, not too busy. Seems half of the patrons are local and the other half are visitors like us. Food portions are adequate, food taste are just okay. We had the typical scrambled eggs, French toast, hash browns, bacon and eggs meal. The bacon though was not crispy so that was a downer.... More

This place looks outdated and quirky, but they serve very delicious classic Americana food. We enjoyed sharing a thick shake and we each had hamburgers and fries.

Quaint style restaurant reminiscent of the "drive-in" days but indoor seating. Menu seems to be home-style and not "fast food". My visits were breakfast time and it always hit the spot.

We were visiting friends who live close by. When we come up to visit we always go to Renee's because we know we will have a good breakfast. Nothing fancy but it is homey and it is filled with locals. Varied menu options and portions are ample.

This is in Lakeport one of 2 large cities by the lake. Our home town of Kelseyville is right dab in the middle of Clearlake & Lakeport. So we do travel both directions quite frequently. This one reminds me of the Bob's Big Boy Restaurants down south. It has both inside & outside eating but not done as much in... More

Renee's is a very good restaurant. The turn-over rate of the wait-persons is very low so you get to know your server over the years. The restaurant is always very clean....and is usually kind of crowded....especially on Sundays when we often stop in and have brunch. We also eat lunch there frequently, and breakfast occasionally. No matter what time of... More

I'm on a temporary assignment in Lakeport and Renee's cafe is my favorite place to have lunch. I would definitely eat breakfast there also but I'm living in Ukiah. If you have read my other postings then you know that a club sandwich is my gold standard for how well a restaurant measures up and Renee's club sandwich is the... More

It is diner food. The vibe of the place is very old school dine with servers that fit right in and are very good. The food was less wonderful.
