Beatniks is a casual, friendly place with a great ambience for relaxing and having a conversation with friends. The place has become very popular and as a result can get very busy. However, the staff are always friendly and the owners are attentive to their customers. Mike and Mike (the owners) are there quite frequently. The food and coffee are... More

I love everything about Beatniks. The food is fresh,cooked to order and delicious. The atmosphere is comfortable and big. This restaurant can handle the big crowds it gets. It has enough space and workers to make sure everyone is happy. The service is friendly, efficient and speedy.

This is a wonderful breakfast and lunch venue that has "beatnicks" ambiance. Breakfasts and coffee here are my favorite. But beware .. it can be crowded and you should not be in a hurry. But patience is rewarded with delicious food.

I have enjoyed breakfast here on several occasions over the past few years. The food is tasty and reasonably priced, the service is good, and the variety of coffees is good, with free self-service refills. They have large gathering areas for groups and outdoor seating as well. Highly recommend for breakfast.

After, or before, a hike in Bidwell Park, a great place to have coffee or breakfast or lunch. A really pleasant, dog friendly, outdoor eating area. Clean, efficient and a very nice selection of dishes to choose from. Close to the freeway for those traveling through town on the way north or south.

I come here quite often with friends, and mostly for the simple house coffees. But the occasional breakfast or specialty sandwich or salad is a real treat in Chico. The breakfasts rank up there with the very best of our town (see other reviews of Morning Thunder, Sin of Cortez, and Hotel Diamond's new 220 Restaurant under Michael's oversight) and... More

Beatniks is a very well operated. The service and items offered are very, very good. Prices are not necessarily low, but value and consistency is well worth the cost.
