“Oma's is Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012 via mobile

I have been eating here since nearly the day it opened. Oma means grandmother and I haven't seen her of late. But the traditional food they have served over the years is still here. Delightful place for breakfast - especially out of doors.

“Best pastries in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

Oma's is a must for cinnamon roll lovers. This is our first start when coming to Idyllwild. Their hours do vary, so make sure to plan your trip accordingly. Their breakfasts are great as well. But.....you cannot visit without trying the cinnamon roll.

“Tasty breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and tasted great. Service was friendly and fast; and the price was very reasonable. Location is great, smack in the middle of town with indoor and outdoor seating.

“European bakery with tasty burgers and sandwiches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

We went for lunch and had sandwiches, and then we also indulged in an extra-large cinnamon roll and cherry turnover for dessert. Everything was lovely.

There are a few tables inside, but when the weather is nice, it is delightful to eat outside as well, where they had live music (a harpist and a violinist) when we had lunch there a couple summers ago.

The desserts are many and varied and we haven't had anything that wasn't tasty - but we certainly haven't tried everything! But this is one of our musts when we go to Idyllwild.
