Went there with my 3 and 5 year olds and was treated with a lot of patience. The food was great and they put up with all the changes the Grandkids were requesting. Nice to have a place that happily accepts kids.

I love the outdoor patio for brunch! The food is always good, and the portions are always more than I can eat, so I have leftovers for another day!

You cannot go wrong at any of the Bill's Cafe locations. Generous portions but always a long wait. Not the place to go if you are in a hurry, especially on the weekends.

We love all of the locations of Bill's Cafe here in San Jose. The food is consistently good and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. Great place for families. Sometimes the waitlist is long but I don't remember ever waiting longer than 15 minutes.
