whenever you need a satisfying meal , the Inn is the place to go to. Breakfast is always satisfying as testified by the weekend lines. Lunch choices are lip smacking good. Dinner is predictably excellent. The Asian influences are there on stellar options.

There is always a nice variety on the menu, like a thai entre to a cheeseburger to something Italian, so I know my mood can always be matched. The service is always fast (sometimes I ask them to slow it down!) and cheerful. It's generally quiet, which is good for those who have trouble hearing in noisy restaurants. Oh, and... More

The Inn is an always good and very consistent restaurant. I prefer going there for breakfast because of the wonderful biscuits. Their omelets are very good as are other breakfast foods. On weekends, the whiteboard has at least 10 different omelets listed along with, perhaps, a version of corn beef hash. The service is fast but it is a bit... More

From the biscuits to the omelettes to the french toast, this place is exceptional. They always have great, friendly service and show that they care about how much you like your food.

Three of us dropped in here for a quick breakfast. They are known for their biscuits, which I think would be better a bit more salty, but breakfast was fast and good. We each tried a different dish and they were all nicely prepared and good. It is consistently busy and the place to be in Kensington.

The food here is wonderful. Service is fast and friendly. Parking can be crowded, and sometimes I have had to walk a block to the restaurant. It can be crowded at breakfast, but it is crowded because everyone wants to eat here. I think that you will keep returning to Inn Kensington once you have been here.

The waiters are nice and prompt and friendly; the food if quite good and there are certain dishes that are delightful such as the pancake with beans and salsa. Have eaten there dozens of times and always order the same thing; but today I am going to try something else to test them out. thank you

Excellent asparagus soup. Other entrees were fine, as we expected. Excellent service. Beautiful stained glass window. Went back for breakfast and equally happy.. Great local feel. Visit the cheese shop also.

We just got back from lunch at Inn Kensington. This is a bright, cheery neighborhood place with well prepared California-style food. They serve breakfast well into the afternoon. There's a board with daily specials. Staff are efficient and helpful. It's a tad noisy at lunch time, which is an indication of its popularity. Parking nearby is generally easy.

Thank retiredvp2
