Cute restaurant near courthouse. We had the Bailey's Breakfast Sandwich. Bacon, egg, cheese avocado, arugala and sliced tomato on a homemade Bailey's Cheese Bun. It's the best creation we have had in a long time. Service and coffee were wonderful.

This place is amazing! I was here for a very sad and quick visit. On the last morning there, we decided to take a family member to this cafe for breakfast. As with most places we went in this town, it was cute, and service was amazing. I can't talk enough about how delicious the food was either! This is... More

Lunch was tasty. My husband and I ate omelets there. The food was good but not much better than a Denny's. If you're looking for interesting decor and a lot of food it's a good place to eat. Not my favorite but good.

We frequently fly into the Quincy airport just to walk the few minutes into town to have breakfast or lunch at the Morning Thunder. The food is always great and satisfying. From great omelets and pancakes for breakfast to nice sandwiches and great burgers for lunch, Morning Thunder is a unique and satisfying experience.

Food here was fairly good though portions were giant. We had breakfast. Service was spotty. Their famous biscuits I found to be huge dough blobs without much flavor. The omelette was good though a little on the wet side for me. Potatoes were OK. Coffee was good, though.

You can not beat the service,food or atmosphere at the Thunder! Locals recommend it, so you know it must be good, and it is! Arrive early to,get a seat, or wait, it's worth the wait!

Stopped in for breakfast on a college trip to Feather River College. Great omelets, big enough to share depending on your appetite with outside seating in front by the grape arbor and flower beds. Had a nice chat with the owners while waiting for the food to arrive and will definitely return.

Had a fantastic omelet breakfast with terrific service. The omelet was fresh and the meal would qualify as a Healthy sized breakfast. The staff was friendly and the coffee cup was never empty. Will go back again on our trip to Lake Almanor and try the rest of the menu.

Stopped here for breakfast on the way from Reno to Almanor and can safely say this is my new breakfast stop. I love that you are offered the choice of regular or french roast coffee. French roast for me! My coffee-sissy mom enjoyed her regular coffee too, along with a homemade muffin.
