Easy parking right outside. Free Wi-Fi. Sit at the counter or at tables. Bright fresh ambiance. Pleasant staff. Great breakfast choices. We loved our omelets and the coffee. Do look at the art on the wall. Local artists display their work. Previously we've had excellent lunches. Wonderful chowder soup followed by an amazing "Breakfast Salad" which is like a cobb...

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel for offering organic, locally grown food. While that may be true it was a very disappointing experience. When we were seated there we 3 other tables of customers in the restaurant and 2 out on the patio. It took the waitress 15 minutes to take our order. We ordered simple meal, omlets, toast... More

Great little restaurant on highway 1, serving fresh quality food and friendly service. There was country music playing in the background, nice atmosphere. The special that morning was the Crab Benedict which was excellent! The jam is homemade, also their hot sauce, yum!

We ate there twice. The service was excellent. We felt at home there. The most unique thing on the menu was the Dungeness Crab omlette. It was good but perhaps a little shy on the actual crab meat. All else was very tasty.

I come here for lunch few days ago, the food was tasty and the place looks clean and decoration it is appealing. I felt the price a little bit overpriced and staff could be a little bit more caring. Probably will be back!

Stopped in for lunch. We moved outside to make room for the flies inside. The food was very not that tasty. Overpriced for what we got. And the server was so disease gated. I had to go in to get utensils and napkins after she brought the food. Asked for a coffee refill 3 times. Got it on the third... More

Cute little diner with good food and fast service. Option to sit inside or outside. Waitress and cook very friendly. Nice place to get a quick and filling bite to eat.

Fantastic burgers made with local grass fed beef. This is a great alternative to the crowded eateries along the coast. Friendly staff and pleasant, low key atmosphere. We'll be sure to stop on our next trip through Petaluma!

$42 for two burgers and a Sprite. $20 for bacon cheeseburger with added avocado, priced in menu as $16 (already high) + $1 for avocado. didn't feel like arguing so paid and left. Despite making one only special request not to, had to stop them from putting mayo on burger. We sat at counter so we could observe the overused... More
