The locals love this place, and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, but the food okay but nothing special - it's hard to find anything on the menu that isn't strong on carbs.

I live near R&A's and eat there about eight times a year, especially when we have out-of-town guests. Recently we had an unexpected surprise. We had friends(paleo, gluten-free) from Amherst MA with us for lunch and their menu served them well. We arrived at 2:45PM for late lunch, they stop serving at 2:50PM, and had a lovely meal talking until... More

We have had breakfast at Rick and Ann's on at least a dozen occasions and there is no better place, no better breakfast in Berkeley. Located right across the street from the Claremont Hotel, it's a bit removed from the UC campus and downtown but the food and ambience make the trip worthwhile any time for breakfast or lunch. Great... More

Our daughter lives in Berkeley, we visit often and always try to have a breakfast at Rick & Ann's. During weekends the line can be quite long, however breakfast is served everyday until 3. So our suggestion is to sleep in, then have "brunch" at Rick & Ann's. I had a short stack of whole grain pancakes with a side... More

First of all, the ambiance and location are perfect. Located right below the Claremont Hotel with ample parking, but the food was mediocre. I had a cup of curry lentil soup, which arrived after a ten minute wait, at the same time as my my ginger waffle. Maybe I should have asked for the soup first, but it seemed like... More

Awesome place! We had breakfast here after reading reviews and it did not disappoint. Erica's french toast is a must! Will definitely go back when we come back to town.

My husband and I stopped in Berkeley on our way to Sonoma. We stayed at the Claremont Hotel but wanted something more home style for breakfast. I checked Trip Advisor and found Rick & Ann's. We waited longer than the 15-25 minutes we were told but whatever we were on vacation. We had the Eggs Benedict and my husband had... More

Always busy so not the best choice for large parties-mid morning. Hashes and scrambles. The pancake variety is yummy. We usually share one egg dish and pancakes. We love the midwest, potato pancakes, Takes a while, we get a scone or muffin as an appetizer.

Service is great once you get a seat as there is often a waiting list as the breakfasts are superb. Park behind the restaurant in the lot to avoid any troubles (on Claremont) If you are a tourist, this is a great way to soak up the local environment.

My brother and I slipped in here quickly yesterday for breakfast - and it was great!! We were lucky as we were a party of 2 and they could accommodate us at the bar. Friendly service. Loved the variation on breakfast comfort food. I had scrambled eggs with cheese, corn pancakes, sausage and sourdough toast. Service was efficient and quick... More

Our menu offers simple, comforting foods with universal appeal. We are conscientious of the ingredients we us and the diversity of our patrons, so we can accommodate a variety of diet restrictions. We love using organic and local produce. We truly are a Berkeley business. Whether it’s our cornmeal pancakes or gingerbread waffles for breakfast, our grilled flank steak sandwich or our turkey burger for lunch, or our pan-seared red snapper or our chicken pot pie for dinner, we have something to please everyone! If you have a special event in your future, please check out Ann’s Catering menu on our website. We also feature local artists’ work in the restaurant that is available for purchase.Oakland Magazine named us the Best Breakfast in the Bay Area!
