A good old-fashioned family restaurant with a full menu of breakfast dishes, sandwiches etc. Try the "Joe's Special," a dish of ground beef, eggs & spinach topped with sautéed mushrooms. Delicious!

We were on a motorcycle trip in northern Ca. and wanted a late breakfast. The wait was a little long because of all the fires in the area, fireman need to eat too. The breakfast was very good, large portions and they all came promptly and were hot. The service was friendly and courteous and the prices were in line... More

We went there for breakfast today and the service was excellent we have a waitress we'd prefer she takes good care of us she has been our main waitress for well over 10 years. But the last few years the place has really gone downhill and the prices went up. So we quit going there couldn't stand the food anymore.... More

Selected because of their sandwich menu. Parking lot is small but adequate. Initial impressions: clean, diner decor, mid-range prices anticipated. Recent high school graduate as server. Would like to have suggested that she remove the small ring from her nostril, but maybe that's California. However, her recommendations regarding sandwiches and the milkshakes were good. Prices were reasonable. This is a... More

Chose to go here because it seemed the most family friendly and served American food that I knew the kids would eat! So glad we ate here because it was so delicious!! The service was great too! So friendly and personable! Just a great home-town feel!

We were in town for a wedding and thought we would try this for breakfast. We liked it so much we went back the next day. Great service, good food and a great value.

I would recommend staying away from this place altogether. We stopped in for breakfast on the weekend and were seated quickly. When we went to place our order we were told that items on the were not being served any more (it would have been easy to just put something over that and then you wouldn't have to explain). After...

After checking into our hotel we had to drive to find someplace to eat dinner. I consulted my GPS for listings in the area. We didn't see any familiar names except Denny's which was not a choice. We spotted this location and being late we pulled in and gave it a try. We were greeted nicely and seated. It wasn't... More

We have been going to Niveen's when we visit family for about the past 10 years. Niveen's service is always great, the portions served are generous and most of the food is very nice. Recently they have added a BBQ Rib dinner and my husband had that for dinner. He said it was very good. I would recommend Niveen's as... More
