Had Chicken Cordon Bleu. Excellent and Big portion. I could not finish it all. My husband had a turkey dinner. He was not as happy with his meal though he did still enjoy it. Took home a cinnamon roll. It was amazing. Staff was friendly. Road from Escondido to Ramona was scary through the mountains especially in the dark.

We love this little cafe, with it's wonderful sticky buns and great lunches and breakfasts. Not fancy, but warm and friendly with high quality food.

Was nice atmosphere but lacked a little in taste on some food selections. Waitress that served us was polite and attentive.

Guy Fieri was here for the Cinnamon Rolls. They are the best. They have 3 flavors. The original with Pecans, Cinnamon Apple and a Carmel Pecan. I have tried all 3 and would recommend the Original. They are large at over $5.00. They are so good we order them to go to take home after our vacation at the Rivera... More

Just driving through after seeing a quilt show (surprisingly a lot to do in this small town) and stopped in. We had lunch. Wife had a very nice small chef salad (which actually was a huge salad). I had your basic Swiss and cheese on rye. Excellent. Washed it down with a huge Arnold Palmer. We saw one of the... More

Based on reviews, we stopped at Ramona Cafe for breakfast. I ordered an at gratin potato omelet, my husband had French toast and bacon. The omelette was overlooked, and filled with chunks of potato and unadorned cream cheese. While my husband is not a picky eater, he left most of his breakfast untouched. This is not a place we will... More

We our local and have eaten here many many times. The food is always great. Sometimes the service can be a little bit slow on the weekends, but that's because the place is usually jam packed with flatlanders. Def a cool place to stop any day of the week!

I've eaten here twice and both times have been a great and positive trip for me and my party that was with me. Great food, giant cinnamon rolls, and nice staff/owner.

Have eaten there many of times and the food never lets me down. Their Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs is by far one of my favorite for the breakfast menu. For lunch it would have to be the French Dip or the Club Sandwich that I like the most.
