Dean's is my favorite breakfast in the East Bay area. This is a bit of a mixed bag, Dean's is very good but IMHO breakfast restaurants in the East Bay are severely lacking compared to almost anywhere else. Too many places with essentially mediocre diner style food or pretentious spots with long lines and all are unjustifiably expensive. Without veering... More

They are expert on cooking omelets. Never over or under cooked. Everything just right . I usually order just one meal and split it with the wife.

I happened to be in town and was looking for a place to have breakfast. I saw the reviews about Dean's and thought I would give it a try. Dean's is located on Main St in Pleasanton. It looks like an old fashion diner when you step inside. There are two rooms with booths lining the walls and tables in... More

We tried Dean's because my grandsons love to go there. The omelet menu is so immense it's over-whelming. So, the waitress suggested we tell her what we wanted and they made them to order! Delicious. Big portions too.

I used to have my office a block away and would come in for breakfast at least once a week. The decor had seen better days, but the food is why I went, and I why I kept going back. At first I varied my breakfasts, but after a month or so, I settled on omlettes and that's mostly what... More

I've never seen so many types of omelettes in my life. You think about it and they have it. Excellent place for breakfast or brunch. And they give you a mountain of food.

This food is awesome. I have eaten breakfast and lunch here and it was fantastic. The servings are large, the food is fresh and hot, and you better see the bottom of your coffee cup because the service is excellent! Their specialty is omelets but everything they serve is great! Sometimes you have to wait awhile to get in but... More
