Howard's was a great choice. It's hard to get in so go early. The place is always packed. Good food, and a lot of it.

Had two wonderful breakfasts while I was in Occidental, CA. The coffee was great and so was each breakfast.

Stopped here for a snack. Had delicious coffee, muffin & scone. Sat out on the deck with our dog. Found out they also have a menu for the dogs. Wish we had gone earlier for breakfast, sure looked and smelled good! Making sure we eat here on our next visit!

There may be more breakfast choices earlier in the day in this small village of Occidental, but when we arrived around 2pm, I think this was the only choice for all day breakfast. It is all cash, which is good to know. They probably have an ATM nearby if not in there, we happened to have cash. I really enjoyed... More

This place is charming and so good! My daughters and I picked this restaurant for lunch on our girls' day out day. We were in the Russian River area for the week and were focused on having a healthy, tasty lunch after a few days of richer foods. We were all happy with Howard's and loved the food. It was... More

This very old building has housed the same breakfast/lunch resturaunt for many decades. It's the only breakfast place in Occidental. Good omelets, and eggs benedict, pretty fair gringo version of huevos rancheros. Good home fries ( grilled potatos). Pancakes are ok. I think they have real maple syrup..if you ask. Expensive Nutcake juice bar if that's your thing. Expect any... More

A great find in the small town of Occidental. We stopped in for lunch after zip lining. A wide menu of breakfast, brunch and sandwich options. Very fresh food and friendly staff. Cash only!

My family and I ate breakfast at Howard's Station on a rainy morning. We sat on the covered deck listening to the rain and enjoying their food and specialty coffee drinks. Being that it was fall, pumpkin was the specialty all around. They served a nice pumpkin latte, made with what tasted like real pumpkin, not a fake syrup. It... More

I have been to Howard's Cafe many times. A friend is visiting from North Carolina and we took her to Howards. She really like the food, service and the general feel of the restaurant. Their variety of food has something for everyone. They have good omelettes, scrambles, Benedicts, waffles, and house made juices and biscuits. Get their early, as the... More
