We frequently fly into the Quincy airport just to walk the few minutes into town to have breakfast or lunch at the Morning Thunder. The food is always great and satisfying. From great omelets and pancakes for breakfast to nice sandwiches and great burgers for lunch, Morning Thunder is a unique and satisfying experience.

Food here was fairly good though portions were giant. We had breakfast. Service was spotty. Their famous biscuits I found to be huge dough blobs without much flavor. The omelette was good though a little on the wet side for me. Potatoes were OK. Coffee was good, though.

You can not beat the service,food or atmosphere at the Thunder! Locals recommend it, so you know it must be good, and it is! Arrive early to,get a seat, or wait, it's worth the wait!

Stopped in for breakfast on a college trip to Feather River College. Great omelets, big enough to share depending on your appetite with outside seating in front by the grape arbor and flower beds. Had a nice chat with the owners while waiting for the food to arrive and will definitely return.

Had a fantastic omelet breakfast with terrific service. The omelet was fresh and the meal would qualify as a Healthy sized breakfast. The staff was friendly and the coffee cup was never empty. Will go back again on our trip to Lake Almanor and try the rest of the menu.

Stopped here for breakfast on the way from Reno to Almanor and can safely say this is my new breakfast stop. I love that you are offered the choice of regular or french roast coffee. French roast for me! My coffee-sissy mom enjoyed her regular coffee too, along with a homemade muffin.

I always try to stop in Morning Thunder when I am home visiting, but this was the first time I ordered the Biscuits and Gravy. Double-Yum and going for a run;-) Don't be on a diet when you order... The coffee is fantastic too.

Funny enough at 48 yrs of age breakfast is a new thing for me. I started kayaking and realized breakfast must occur beforehand or else : ) That said, the hunt for the best breakfast place in California began and when I found Morning Thunder I knew I had acheived my goal. This place is off the charts, so very... More

They offer a good variety of breakfast options and my husband and I both had omelettes. They are HUGE! We agreed we could have split one as we both took a half back to our motel room. The potatoes were creamy and yummy, and I ate only half of those as well. They offered English muffins, toast , and some... More
