Excellent service and food. Not a cozy atmosphere because there is no dropped ceiling in this commercial building.

We got here close to closing, but we received a friendly greeting and sat where we wanted. Highly recommend the Garlic Bread. The Fried Chicken is pan-fried and delicious. The Reuben is the best. Fast, friendly service. Loved the farm kitchen decor.

We're local, and keep coming back for their breakfast. I'm a big fan of Eggs Benedict, and it's wonderful. The sauce is great, and the eggs are always cooked to perfection. I'm also not a huge fan of hash brown potatoes because they're usually on the greasy side, but theirs are fantastic, cooked perfectly every time. Their waitresses are super... More

...now its a really a bad experience top to bottom. We do NOT recommend it. Everything tastes like whatever brand of grease they are bringing in these days.

Four of us stopped here for breakfast at the recommendation of friends who have a second home in Cloverdale. Food was excellent. Several of us had Swedish Pancakes with ligonberries. They were excellent. The oatmeal was homemade and thick. Service was great. We would definitely eat here again.

We were driving up Northern California, and set the GPS for food. Zini's Diner came up, so we gave it a try. Friendly waitresses and a good selection of breakfast foods at a reasonable price. The food came out really fast, even though it was pretty busy. I ordered an omelet with mushrooms, spinach, and cheese. It came with choice... More

Good service but I'm not a fan of the paper thin pancakes. You'd need a micrometer to measure the thickness of their "big stack". If you're looking for a hearty breakfast look elsewhere.
