This little breakfast/lunch restaurant in Kernville has really good home-cooked breakfast. We didn't try it for lunch.

I had breakfast as did my wife. This is an old fashioned dinner where the space is limited and it's sort of old but was clean. The food was excellent but they took their time preparing their food

The idiots put the bread in the same continer as the salad, left out the salad dressing and sliverware. Even after tipping them $5-$20 each time. Don't bother.

Breakfast was so good. We couldn't decide if it was the eggs or the pancakes that were best - i guess a tie, although my wife liked the thick slice of ham. We went back on our second morning while we were in town. Good...thing we don't live there or we would become quite overweight from eating the good food all the time.More

We had breakfast here before heading into the national forest. Servers were great- prompt and friendly. I had a delicious veggie omelet that came with hash browns and a homemade biscuit. My husband had eggs and corned beef hash. The hash was made with chunks...of shredded corned beef. Really good! Ate outside as necessary due to Covid. Highly recommend!More

We ordered here for breakfast on Saturday July 25 after reading reviews on how good the breakfast is here. Sorry to say, I completley disagree with the reviews. I had a breakfast sandwich, it was bland even with the bacon there seemed to be a...lack of basic salt and pepper which would have added enough flavoring i could have enjoyed it. I couldn't even finish the first half of the sandwich. My husband had the corned beef hash breakfast with a side of the biscuits and gravy that people raved about. Sadly again, we were very disappointed. The corned beef hash eventhough fresh and not out of a can was again lacking in any seasoning or flavor, no salt, no pepper, just bland. Same for the sausage gravy, just bland. Won't be eating there again.More

We wanted to get an early start, so arrived about 20 minutes before the scheduled opening time. Lots of folks were already there. It was fabulous. Great food, generous portions, very friendly staff and customers. Highly recommended.

Tried a few places in Kernville for breakfast, this was by far the best! My wife had the corned beef hash (with biscuit and gravy) while I had the Country skillet (came with 2 rounds of toast). Struggled to eat everything, so we had cartons...to take the balance away with us - heated them up for next day’s breakfast. Both dishes were well prepared and delicious, while the value for money was amazing! This is THE place to eat!!More
