I have breakfast with a close friend at Dean’s 2-3 times a month. The omelets are huge, they provide a large order of hash browns, and toast or biscuits (the biscuits are huge) with your order. The main dining area is nice, nothing real fancy....More

Breakfast portions are huge and this diner atmosphere makes Dean's Cafe a fun little mom and pop shop to visit when you're visiting Pleasanton. The service is quick, and they don't rush you, even when there's a long wait list.

If you like a choice of omelettes this is your place! Check out The menu below! There must be at least 100 different types . Coffee was the usual diner rubbish but the food and service great.

As a twenty-seven year resident of Pleasanton I had often passed by Dean's Cafe on Main Street without ever stopping to sample its breakfast menu. If I ever went out for breakfast it was usually to Vic's Cafe further down Main Street. That all changed...More

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...More
