While staying in Bakersfield, found Cindy's on line, sounded almost too good to be true. Boy were we pleasantly surprised. Although we were there in the late evening, the staff were most welcoming, making sure we were greeted with friendliness and warmth. The facilities were clean as a whistle, including the tables, tableware, cups, glasses, and even the condiment containers.... More

Stopped yesterday for a quick breakfast. Was promptly greeted and seated. Water and coffee were on table immediately. Great service, if anything, over attentive personnel, had a hard time eating because of constant "is everything OK". Breakfast was average, at best, but the surprise came at the placing of my tab. Light breakfast, with coffee, just a few cents shy... More

This was one of my favorite places in the past. The prices were always a bit high, but the food was great. No longer. The higher prices remain, but the food and service have taken a nosedive. Very sad the place has slipped so badly.

This place is open 24/7, last I heard. It offers decent food in the wee hours in its neighborhood; and it's not part of the Dennys chain. It's a long-time historical favorite for many people in NE Bakersfield.

Passing through coming from Pasadena to Sequoia National Park. Wanted something local and not a chain. Cindy's! Had the meatloaf. Delicious! Just like my Mom used to make!

I found myself getting an oil change at Juffy Lube in the same parking lot as Cindy's. I had not been there before and I was hungry. As I approached the front door I was met by the wonderful smell of breakfast cooking. Inside I was greeted quickly and shown to a seat. Coffee was there with a menu right... More

I've given this place three chances because I live nearby. I've been disappointed each time. It's kind of hard to screw up breakfast items, but they do a great job of it. The last time I was there, it was very late at night, so it wasn't crowded at all (maybe three tables occupied). It took about half an hour... More

The food was ok, the waitress was very friendly. I'd go back, but not in a "oooo I really crave Cindy's" type of way. It could use some updating and maybe a new chef - I had the steak ordered medium rare which came out over cooked and a little charred. And the fries were ok, though you had to... More
