First, the location. It’s a beautiful setting overlooking the bay, with a great outdoor terrace. But it’s also a great geographic location on the I-80 corridor between the Napa Valley area and, say, the Oakland airport. I found it was perfectly situated for a break in the drive to have lunch. Not far from the freeway. The food was fresh and tasty, the atmosphere very casual, and the service very good. It looked like a good family spot, too.

Group of four arrived around 730pm ish. Seated within a couple of minutes, food ordered within 10 minutes. Drinks arrived shortly after. Caesar salads were so so. We were hungry and good conversation kept everything OK. Everyone's main course was delicious and satisfying. Looking forward to the summer time for eating outside

This restaurant is a diamond in the rough, because it is hidden. It is not near a main thoroughfare, which means you have to know where it is. The food and service are excellent, and the sunset view from the veranda are spectacular.

The place is super cute, quaint, has a view and a very cute patio area. It is also dog friendly. Breakfast is very good. Lots to chose from including organic eggs for an uncharge, but love that they offer that healthy option! Corned beef is very different, large chunks, it is excellent but be prepared that it's not your typical corned beef. There is nothing to complain about their breakfast choices - all good! Service is sporadic and more recently SLOWER than before. We've eaten there for dinner but every time was disappointing. Very generically prepared and boring entrees, some not even palatable. Lunch has been uneventful too as far as the being generic and boring. We stick with breakfast and will continue to frequent the place because breakfast is very good, place is a great location/view and i can bring my doggies!

I love coming here for the weekends for their breakfast menu!! I always get the salmon benedict and it is so delicious. The eggs are perfectly poached and very good serving. Do come early though because you may wait awhile. It gets very busy. My husband got the French toast deluxe and it was very filling!!! Love it!!!
