We have been going to the Village Inn Cafe for years. The service is great and the food hearty and tasty. It's like getting home cooking without turning on the stove. The portions are really large. The milkshakes are excellent!

The Village Inn is exactly what you'd hope for in a breakfast place. Try the Joe's Scramble or the Hash and be disappointed with neither. Just be there early and be prepared to wait, there's no secret to finding the best breakfast in Orinda.

Wonderful family run restaurant. It is food like you would cook at home but so much better and you don't have to do any dishes!

Had breakfast with my wife before going Christmas shopping. Super busy day, but the food and service was great. Got a spinach omelette with lots of veggies, coffee. I'd say they have the best breakfast in Orinda!

The breakfasts here are really good and the service is really good. I live across the street which makes it ever so convenient. Lots of parking, too. Can be crowded especially on the weekends but they move people in and out pretty quickly. Don't miss...More

Great service, great food, and good value. Never had a thing I didn't like. Generous portions. All fresh and most items are house made (croutons, dressing, potato chips). Worth a trip if you're in the area.
