Very good breakfast for a very reasonable price. Pleasant atmosphere, highly recommend. Parking is the only hiccup, but the food and in-diner experience are superb. Entertaining if you're able to get a bar seat in front of the omelette cooking station, they're good at what they do!

We all love our comfort foods and Alamo Cafe serves it up each day with an all day breakfast and lunch menu. We have been twice now and will continue to patronise this great little diner. Seating space is limited so be wary but service is fast and friendly and the food delicious and well worth the wait. It is... More

Frequented by early morning commuters and locals. A diner-like small friendly breakfast spot here for many decades

Lived in ALAMO for nearly 47 years. This is one of my favorite places to take family members for breakfast.

I loved the coziness of the Alamo Cafe. The vibrant atmosphere felt welcoming. We were very fortunate to get 2 spots on the counter - right in front of the grill. I'm mesmerized and enticed by the bacon, sausages, linguiça, corned beef, home fries, eggs... Lots of great choices for breakfast! I enjoyed the linguiça! Coffee was good. Our server... More

Great place for breakfast in downtown Alamo. It's tiny, about 4 tables and maybe 6 counter stools. This place is in high demand on the weekends, especially for breakfast; no reservations, put your name on the list and wait, it is totally worth it. The cafe serves nice size portions of "breakfast comfort food" that is fresh and delish for... More

Great fast service! The absolutely best biscuits, sausage & gravy in Contra Costa County! Small place, difficult to find a seat on the weekend during breakfast hours because it is in such demand! Trust me it is well worth the wait! Best breakfast in Alamo! Friendly owners and staff! Delicious lunch menu, wonderful burgers & sandwiches!

A great place to stop in and have a couple of eggs and coffee while sitting at the counter. Prices are very reasonable.

I've been coming here my entire life and I never have left disappointed. I usually come for breakfast and everything is delish and fresh. Corned beef hash is fresh corned beef, no canned meat here. Eggs to my liking and the bacon and links are cooked to perfection! Thank you for consistently making my tummy happy and always feeling like... More
