Yes lived up to the hype. Here come more crowds. 9am on a weekday and the lot is packed. Great bene, great service and a full bar!(?). I can only imagine what the weekends are like here, but there's nothing comparable in this vanilla desert of soul called Santa Clara. Thankfully Bill's is here.

I never usually hang out in this part of town- and found myself near the airport at breakfast time so hit the old google search and Bill's popped up. I am glad it did.

This is a great place for many kinds of breakfast, and while the size or the portions may attract some people, the quality and tip top service will keep me coming back.

People that know how to make poached eggs the right way - hard to find yet here they make it look easy.

The number of different "benedict's" they have will make you want to try breakfast seven days a week.

Now all I have to do is come back for lunch some time- I can't wait to get "lost" in this part of town again .

The food was really good, but the service is what made the experience. Our server was so genuinely nice.

Had a couple of good hearty breakfasts at Bill's Cafe. The Skillets are massive. The egg dishes are done as ordered. Coffee was good. Service was quick and attentive. They even brought me corn tortillas instead of toast when I said I was GF!

The food is really good and portions are huge! We got there early enough that we got seated right away.
