We have been eating at Black Oak Restaurant for twenty years. This is my #1 breakfast choice. Other family members have enjoyed the lunch menu. But, I always have the breakfast. They give large portions and we usually do not finish all of the meal. They are always pleasant with fast competent service. We always feel welcome. The food is... More

Because sometimes you just have to have a good filling breakfast before hitting the road. Great place with awesome service. The food was delicious and filling. It arrived quickly as well. I had the senior sourdough French toast with an ample serving of fresh fruit. Everyone at the table cleared their plate. Greatness at it's best

This is the style you would have found in every town in the country from the 60's through the 80's. The good is staple American cafe style. We have been coming here for many years and the food has always been consistently good cafe style. Don't expect fancy or new wave and you won't be disappointed. We enjoy the relaxed... More

This restaurant has been in Vacaville a long time, with tradition, class and style, and continued good comfort food. This year celebrating 50 years.

This is an old landmark restaurant here. They only serve breakfast and lunch (closes at 3 PM). The portions are generous and the costs modest. They are very popular with the older baby boomer generation and are usually crowded. The front of the store sells candy, local souvenirs and other things for travelers. If you want a hearty breakfast in... More

Very nice restaurant, we all got the cob salad. The lettuce in the salad was just huge. Had to cut it a lot just to eat it. We were given small water glasses and the lady had a hard time keeping them full.

All three of us had selections from the senior menu. GREAT cod with vegetables - even came with a salad & ice cream! The others had the BLT and said it was the best that they ever had. Now I realize sometimes the enjoyment has to do with the excitement of the company, but the waitress was very sweet, too!

Easy-on/easy-off freeway access, this is a convenient stop for breakfast or lunch (they're closed for dinner). Big family-oriented restaurant, with an attentive staff and great food. Expect long lines on weekends and holidays if you arrive after 10 a.m., but worth the wait -- it's popular with the locals. Big portions. Hearty homestyle cooking. Great coffee. Definitely worth the visit.
