Wonderful family run restaurant. It is food like you would cook at home but so much better and you don't have to do any dishes!

Had breakfast with my wife before going Christmas shopping. Super busy day, but the food and service was great. Got a spinach omelette with lots of veggies, coffee. I'd say they have the best breakfast in Orinda!

We've been eating here since 2009 and the menu has never changed; probably because the regulars would revolt! Looking for simple food (basic diner fare without the grease) served by a congenial crew? This is the place for you! However, no alcohol, few if any options if you are on a specialized diet, and all salads feature iceberg lettuce. Great... More

The breakfasts here are really good and the service is really good. I live across the street which makes it ever so convenient. Lots of parking, too. Can be crowded especially on the weekends but they move people in and out pretty quickly. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

Great service, great food, and good value. Never had a thing I didn't like. Generous portions. All fresh and most items are house made (croutons, dressing, potato chips). Worth a trip if you're in the area.

My local favorite place for a hearty breakfast or lunch. Good family place for kids. Lots of healthy choices of oats, friut or vegetables for the traditional comfort food of potatoes and toast. Weekends can be crowded and sometimes may need to wait 10-20 minutes. They make a traditional great BLT sandwhich. Owners work there and have had the same... More

I was meeting relatives from out of state on August 4, 2016. I checked Orinda restaurants since they were staying there. This popped up with good YELP reviews. We were VERY impressed with the food quality and amount!! Great customer service from the seating person who held a table for us and from the delightful waitress who could not have... More
