Breakfast portions are huge and this diner atmosphere makes Dean's Cafe a fun little mom and pop shop to visit when you're visiting Pleasanton. The service is quick, and they don't rush you, even when there's a long wait list.

They are expert on cooking omelets. Never over or under cooked. Everything just right . I usually order just one meal and split it with the wife.

I happened to be in town and was looking for a place to have breakfast. I saw the reviews about Dean's and thought I would give it a try. Dean's is located on Main St in Pleasanton. It looks like an old fashion diner when...More
