This is an old style café with yummy food. Prices are very reasonable and portions are filling. Come one, come all and enjoy the good old days. A Santa Rosa institution.

We had lunch here last week and it was so good. Down to earth with comfort food. I had the Joe's special that brought back memories of living in the Bay Area thirty years ago

I love Hank's. The food is amazing, some of my favorites are Cinnamon Walnut French toast with real maple syrup, Eggs Benedict, California Eggs Benedict, and and the Pancakes. Their hash browns and their county potatoes are yummy. I love to order a half order, which is just the right amount of food. The ingredients are fresh, the food is... More

Housemade corned beef and hash was good, cottage fries (sliced potatoes with onions) were a tasty starch change-up from the usual hash browns (plus I got em in my hash;). California Benedict and wheat blueberry pancake were solid healthy choices. Usually I'd give this breakfast spot 5 stars but unfortunately today they dragged my English muffin a little too long...

I stayed across the street at the Flamingo and ate here one morning. The place is quaint with a nice view. The food was delicious with a pretty big serving size. The coffee was fantastic and absolutely delicious. I felt it was a bit spendy, but given the portion sizes I guess it makes sense.

I love Hank's and don't come here nearly enough. There's always a bit of a wait, but it's always worth it. This spot is family owned and run. And the entire family, from the waitresses to the hostess to the cooks are courteous, professional, and friendly. I enjoyed eggs Benedict. The kids ate pancakes. We didn't mind waiting 15 minutes...

A house turned into a home style restaurant. We had brunch. Some breakfast and some lunch. Hefty portions and delicious. Reasonable prices and personal staff. All overlooking a scenic creek.

My family and I have loved the food, the atmosphere, and the family friendly service that Hank and Linda have provided over the years. Good coffee, half orders, toys for the kids and always great food! It is a local favorite that I would recommend to any traveler. Parking can be a bit challenging but it is a wonderful cafe,...

This gem has been here for many years. Family run and it shows the pride of ownership. We can walk from our home, 1 + miles away. Love the morning walk to get our appetites up. The menu is varied and always specials on the board. Biscuits homemade, great pancakes per my husband. I love the potatoes! You do not... More
