Don't expect anything fancy. This is just your good ol' local joint. Great comfort food and friendly service. The chicken pot pie is to die for. You can call ahead and take it home if you don't want to stay. Not a lot of room for big parties and I wouldn't recommend the prime rib, but other than that, you... More

A good breakfast but be there early. Can get packed for tables but the counter is a nice place to sit also. Ennjoyed a hearty breakfast that didn't break the bank.

Home/country feel. You welcomed with a smile. Food is wonderful and filling. Good portions and well prepared. Ive driven past this place for a very long time to go to other local spots well that changed today. Stop by and check it out if you just want to fell like you stepped into the feel good past.

Diner food, pure and simple, and ver4y good for that genre. And a great deal; soup or salad, roll or cornbread, entree, side, vegie and dessert for $12-15, and serving sides large. Pork chops were particularly good, with apples and cranberries on top. Plus VERY accommodating to 97 year old mother in law.

I love the Fallbrook Cafe and have been a local customer for 4 years. They have that old time feeling from the 70s with a healthy menu with lots of old time favorites including meatloaf, liver and onions and fish and chips. They also have a wonderful steak dinner and prime rib each week and many wonderful hard to find... More

True old-school down home diner with a huge menu selection from breakfast to lunch to dinner. We came for breakfast at noon & were impressed with the selections on the menu. Quality of food was very good, portions were generous, wait staff attentive & service was great. Wish we had found this place sooner! A must-do for anyone who loves... More

Good choice for a home style dinner at a decent price. Diner style. Disappointed I couldn't get low fat options for food and drink. Staff could be friendlier.

My friend and I hike in and around the Santa Margarita River then head for this restaurant for lunch. It's always fun, friendly and so far, everything that we have had to eat is great. The place was low-key, quiet and the food has been great each of the four time that we have eaten there.

Thank Vic S
