Based on reading TripAdvisor reviews, we visited Nancys cafe and it was wonderful. We sat by the front windows and had the meatloaf dinners. Staff was so friendly and the food came quickly. We saw a crop duster plane sitting outside the hanger right in front of us. It was so fun coming here.

This is the only other place in town I will stop for food. I always go for their breakfast items, it's a good standard breakfast.

While definitely not what you're looking for if you want quick service, we've found the staff to be friendly and the food to be good. We tend to order from the breakfast menu. We like that, as seniors, coffee or juice is included on the senior menu which adds to the savings.

My husband and I decided to try this place after visiting the Sacramento Wildlife Refuge near Willows. I ordered a reuben sandwich and he ordered the "honker" cheeseburger. There appeared to be only one waitress working and the service was very slow. When our food arrived, my husband found that his burger was raw in the middle, not just a... More

The menu offered an amazing variety for a small restaurant. The decor isn't the most updated however the service and quality of food for good prices makes up for the decor limitations! More than adequate serving sizes, food was hot and tasty. Service was very friendly. We recommended to someone else checking in at our lodging and they had the... More

I have been meaning to write this review since I finished my meal but the trip got in the way. We pull off the I-5 just looking for a restroom and stumble into a meal that brought back found memories of day when food was food. Our server Tricia C. was AWESOME!!

We've been coming to Nancy's for breakfast for over a year now, and it's been consistently good diner food with excellent friendly service! Even on the busy mornings, they get around to every customer and don't just save the smiles for the locals.

No matter how you arrive you will have a great experience in this diner. Food is good and help is courteous. It has changed over the decades but there is a nice element of a simpler time and slower pace of life.

Seems to me this is where the locals eat as repeat, repeat customers. The service is first rate and the food is perfect for what you would expect in the central valley of CA, "first rate", oh looks like I repeated myself, well I guess it bears repeating.
