Sunday morning breakfast. Wasn't particularly crowded. Nice service. Prices were ok. Perfectly good food. Definitely dated inside but not a bad spot if u wanna grab breakfast before heading to the airport.

We went here on a Saturday morning around 8:45am in early November. There were 4 open tables when we arrived, and a few more by the time we left. Maybe there was a crowd earlier. This is a local dive restaurant, meant in a good way. Breakfast was very good and service also very good. Proportions were large. Instead of... More

Local dive breakfast spot. Food is just OK, but large portions. Iffy service since it's so crowded. I prefer Breakfast Club about a half mile up Fremont to the north.

Plenty of breakfast choices - all you would expect for eggs, pancakes, waffles, french toast and more. Ever had squid and eggs?? The pecan and cranberry pancakes were delicious. And if you like owls, the collection of owl figurines, paintings, etc will keep you very entertained.

But we were very happy with our choice to eat breakfast here. The staff was wonderful and the food was delicious- nothing fancy. No frills or fancy tricks. Just good 'ol diner cooking... More

Grandma Kitchen may look a bit worn out even outdated... yet food is really fresh and tasty. Potato wedges are made from truly fresh potatoes, not frozen. Eggs were tasty and perfectly cooked. Service is so friendly that you feel immediately part of the family. Definitely a nice place for a friendly tasty start of the day.
