We had always heard that this was a good restaurant. Parking is okay. The place is clean. You order off a menu and the food is brought to your table. Food prep is very slow. The portions are generous. The prices tend to be a little on the high side. The biscuits are absolutely wonderful! Now for the service. The... More

As others have mentioned, the service here has declined while the clientele has also changed. People are irritable and unhappy in the restaurant. My friend tried to get her favorite dish, but the dish was cold. Cold gravy is not good. The tomatoes in my omelette were still cold as well as bitterly unripe. The restaurant is likely a victim...

I read about this in the paper and decided to see for myself. I was thrilled with the people, the service and the food. It's American breakfast so there's no surprise in what's on the menu. The surprise is how great the food is prepared and tastes. Homemade hash, great waffles, pancakes and creative combinations of eggs. As well as... More

Greeted simultaneously by two energetic waiters as we walked in, we were treated to the sight of a baker taking a sheet of biscuits out of the oven. That's when I decided on biscuits with my omelet. We were acknowledged by happy families on the way to our booth. The breakfast included homemade raspberry jam. Yummy!

Looking for a fantastic place? This is it! The biscuits are so so good and huge, served with the best homemade Raspberry Jam. I had the deluxe biscuits they are topped with gravy, bacon and sausage crumbles. I asked the server if I could get a half a order and they do. There's no way someone could eat a full... More

Highly recommend the Farmer Omelette (with egg whites) and the fruit side. The fresh fruit is spectacular with melon, strawberries, blackberries, grapes, pineapple, watermelon, and blueberries! Spicy sausage in the omelette is delish!

Love coming to this breakfast/lunch cafe as the food, everything on the menu, is always delicious. The waitresses all seem to have tats and are forever courteous and efficient. The Hash is one of my favorites, home-made, and the best in So Cal that I've tried. They also have home-made biscuits that are nuclear in size, taste great. They also... More

We went for breakfast and the choices were great. I had an omelet, but the hashbrowns were the best part, cooked through and crispy on the outside. They also offer these amazing biscuits with homemade jam. Yum.

We stopped at Allison's Country Cafe about 10:45 on a weekday to find it was crowded. Once we were seated, we waited quite a while to be served our breakfast. Although, both lunch and breakfast were on the menu, all of us ordered breakfast. It was good but not fabulous. The "biscuits" are HUGE. The home made jelly was yummy.... More
