Renowned for its kids menu, this place, a frequent Best of the East Bay winner, has down-home cooking down pat. Breakfasts include a savory tofu scramble and potato-cheese pancakes; at dinner, which is slightly less consistent, diners tuck into burgers, mac n cheese, vegetarian chili, a kickass chicken pot pie, and full-fledged entrées like braised short ribs with polenta. Warning: Weekend brunch attracts the kind of lines you see at amusement parks.
