I go to this lovely spot often! This is the best place to pass a nice evening. I go to this spot at least once a month. The meals are fantastic, the workers are professional and the cost is reasonable. I enjoy meeting in this restaurant to have a decent dinner.
The owner/manager doesn't give a shit about his care of the customers. My partner has allergies to onions and made it known. The omelet that was on the menu did not disclose onions was in it. Also there was a couple changes to the omelet as a request. It took 3 times to bring the right omelet. We requested to speak to the manager and he had no balls to come out and speak to us to make things right or even apologize. We came here as Paradise evacuees to support this restaurant since they lost their business in Paradise and the food was highly recommended. I will not come back nor recommend this place to anyone ever! I also notice notice no women as part of the staff. Why? The owner is a total ASS! In reply to your expressing concern for the above issue. What I'm really surprised to hear is that your partner/co-owner was busy being the cook and prep, etc.... Knowing that was the situation this morning, would it not have been important for you to be there to handle situations like what I had shared? That is what business partners do, they have each others back. This is part of a learning moment for both of you. May this be of a benefit in building a good business...
Tinna is by far the best server I have ever had here. Not only is she attentive but, kind and made sure we were satisfied throughout our whole dining in experience.
Food not very good. Service was bad. They kind of forgot we were there and they weren't that busy. They were standing around talking.
First, the food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the biscuits and gravy and it was great. However, the service was exceptionally bad. We had a party of 6 but two of our guests were running late. We wanted to order and get food for them so it was ready when they got there but had a hard time finding our waiter. He was never around. Never filled our water, we had to flag down other employees to get things for us. Rang up the check incorrectly and didn't bring things that we ordered. I would imagine the service is better if you sit at the bar top because your server is right there in front of you. Really a shame because the food was so good.
Ordered the corned beef hash. While admittedly tasty, they gave me such a small portion I was left still feeling hungry. For the prices they charge it is NOT worth it.
Food was a good portion. Potatoes were alright, unseasoned, and disproportionate to amount of omelette. Toast was burnt ? Which is the easiest thing to do in a breakfast kitchen- I have worked in many. Veggies in Greek omelette aren't cooked or seasoned; feta cheese had a rubbery texture. My suggestion: sauté omelette veggies & change your feta supplier: you have Orland Farmstead who delivers to Chico restaurants. Utilize your local farms ! Potatoes had mold/sprout spot on them. Lazy cooking at best.
We went to Old Barn Kitchen this morning for the first time and the food was outstanding as was the service! We will be going to this restaurant regularly!
Favorite breakfast spot for breakfast, love the berry blintzes Nice variety of choices, clean comfortable and the staff is super friendly.
Overall underwhelming. The decor is super cute, but there's not enough staff. I'm always waiting to be seated, waiting for the server, and waiting for our food for a long time. Today we tried to give it another shot without our boys. I asked for a hard egg and it was 100% runny. The plate was way too small and the hollandaise and runny egg made a huge mess. Unfortunately they never gave us an extra napkin or two. My husband's fries were limp. They were super sweet and gave us some fruit for our baby and the breakfast potatoes were really tasty. I'm not sure I'll make my way there again as our eating our time is very valuable.
