Quaint style restaurant reminiscent of the "drive-in" days but indoor seating. Menu seems to be home-style and not "fast food". My visits were breakfast time and it always hit the spot.

We were visiting friends who live close by. When we come up to visit we always go to Renee's because we know we will have a good breakfast. Nothing fancy but it is homey and it is filled with locals. Varied menu options and portions are ample.

Renee's is a very good restaurant. The turn-over rate of the wait-persons is very low so you get to know your server over the years. The restaurant is always very clean....and is usually kind of crowded....especially on Sundays when we often stop in and have brunch. We also eat lunch there frequently, and breakfast occasionally. No matter what time of... More

I'm on a temporary assignment in Lakeport and Renee's cafe is my favorite place to have lunch. I would definitely eat breakfast there also but I'm living in Ukiah. If you have read my other postings then you know that a club sandwich is my gold standard for how well a restaurant measures up and Renee's club sandwich is the... More

It is diner food. The vibe of the place is very old school dine with servers that fit right in and are very good. The food was less wonderful.

This place has been a good diner in this community for a long time. They have always provided quality affordable food. Love the outside eating with the family.

The restaurant was across the street and up the block from our motel. We weren't sure what to expect when we went in. However, it turned out to be a good choice for breakfast. Good food and service got our day off to a good start. Modestly priced, you will not be disappointed.
