We wandered in here to grab a late lunch before a concert. It's always a good sign when there are locals in a restaurant! The space is fairly nondescript, but we did appreciate the live plants everywhere. The staff was welcoming and efficient. We ordered burgers, were asked how we wanted them cooked, and actually got them that way! The... More

I just dropped in to get something to go. A very busy place with little seating. Food was okay. I had the biscuits and gravy with 2 sausage patties and a Cesar Chicken Salad with a Coffee.

My husband and I love to get a breakfast on the weekends there. Our favorite is a white egg veggie omelette with fresh fruit instead of potatoes with whole wheat bread. That is because we are currently trying to loose weight. I see a lot of people eating a wide variety of food and enjoying it. Lita's is also dog... More

My first time at Lita's was last weekend and I'd absolutely go back. Staff was attentive, food was fairly priced and they weren't skimpy on servings, and the selection was great. Kids got shakes and pancakes and devoured them, boyfriend got a burger that was almost too big to eat, and I went for the eggs Benedict. Hollandaise sauce was... More

My husband and I enjoyed 2 breakfasts at Litas.The coffee was good and the food delicious with good sized portions. A friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Loved the omelette with hash browns. The pancakes were delicious as well.

Had a wonderful breakfast, served by attentive owners. Lots of choices and a large build your own breakfast list. Indoor and outdoor seating. I really appreciated my tea order arriving alongside a big pot of extra hot water and multiple tea choices. They really aim to please!

Lita's has been in other locations throughout the years, but in my experience, she always delivers variety...coffee cup & soda drinks always refilled~just like the cafes we all knew and loved growing up!

Lita's is one of my all time favorite places to eat in Santa Rosa. I actually met my husband here nineteen years ago when Lita's was located on Dutton Ave. The place was a great pick for college students because of the yummy food at great prices. I am happy to say that not much has changed other then Litas... More
