Food is pretty much comfort food open for breakfast and lunch. Had biscuits and gravy the gravy could have had more sausage in it but overall good and thick. biscuits were not scratch. prices are average. I liked the coffee.

Always wanted to eat at this place as I would always pass it by on the way to work. Finally tried it and I must see it is a gem. Doesn't look like much but food is delicious, portions are huge and price is decent. Service was awesome too.

Wren's Cafe is only open for breakfast and lunch. The food is old style cafe. The sandwiches are good, but the breakfast food is fabulous! They make great potatoes!

My wife and I have noticed this tiny restaurant for many years but only recently tried it...three times in the last six months on our travels from Placer County to SF and the Peninsula. Breakfasts are terrific. I just had an omelette with bacon, Swiss cheese and... More

Good portions and quite a variety. The service... More

Walking into Wren's Cafe is like going back in time. If you have ever watched Mel's Diner, you'll understand what I'm talking about. It's a nostalgic throw back to how customers were served way back when. I particularly love the waitress with the very strong personality. It's like dinner and show. All are very friendly despite the business. The food... More

This place is a classic... basic but wonderful food with consistently nice and wonderful service. The owner is a good guy and gives back to the community. This ia a great place to get basic but great eats. It is a small place, with excellent service. They get to know you here. Enjoy.

This little place has been there for so long. It's easy to miss because of its location right off the Alamo Drive exit. Breakfast is the best with large portions and lots to offer. I love their Eggs Benedict. It's just a small cafe but worth trying. You will not be disappointed.
