The portions here are really big. If you're like me and take some time to savor your food, allow plenty of time for a breakfast here! I've been twice and the first time I had the lox bagel which came served with all kinds of goodies: cream cheese, tomato, capers, arugula, peppers and more. It was an extremely satisfying breakfast... More

went for breakfast with my wife. the coffee was very good and the espresso even very good. but all the rest was really just regular, the jam on the table looks like from a jar, the toasts a bit soggy and the eggs (over easy) were running. my 3th time on the spot and now I can really say -... More

I suppose the line out front means the food is very good. In truth the food was quite good, but be prepared to wait for a table (it took us about 35 minutes to be seated). I had a an omelette with grilled tomatoes and really liked that I could get a side of flavorful black beans instead of grits... More

This place is tiny and there were 6 of us. We went on a very rainy Sunday morning and the place was packed! I think there were as many people waiting outside as were seated inside. Even at that, the wait wasn't horribly long- about 30 minutes. They have a few outside tables but, clearly, no one wanted them on... More

Breakfast is a treat there, with a full menu and lots of homemade choices. The portions are large and the food is tasty!

When we lived in Berkekey, the family would walk here and eat on a regular basis. While in town, I stopped in for breakfast and had a nice meal. I ordered my favorite Waffle, with Patty Sausage, and Two Eggs Over-Easy. Portions are large, and the other dishes are good. Usually pretty busy, but worth the wait for good comfort... More

Cool ambience and food is fresh and made to order. The only thing is that they don't make Hot Chocolate from scratch, it was watery, not chocolaty, and lukewarm. Weird. The pastries also did not seem to be homemade. They were nice about taking items that did not pass muster off of the bill.

went for a not so early Saturday breakfast nd the place was full but not crowded. as we were a few years overseas we wanted the "real" American breakfast and got steak and eggs and classic breakfast and both were really good. the coffee was a bit burned and the homefries some were not soft enough but else all was...

The Home Made Cafe is a small local eatery. It is very popular with the local residents for good reason. The menu is eclectic and more than just interesting. Breakfast is served all day to both indoor and sidewalk seating. I watched with interest the variety of breakfast dishes go by my table but being there for lunch and being... More

I had breakfast here at the peak time on a Sunday. Took long time to get the food but you could see that everybody was working hard to make it work... The food doesn't give you the impression of being homemade despite the name. I was sitting by the counter and could see that the kitchen was not that clean... More
