Bill’s Cafe - San Jose

4/5 stars

Stacks, you have competition!

FOOD: The menu was so big and enticing, I had trouble deciding what I wanted. And if you're not in the mood for anything, you can order the "Not in the Mood for Anything" which just happens to be soup and a side salad with breadsticks. Everything on the menu looks like tasty comfort food – from omelettes to wraps, sandwiches, burgers, and benedicts. I finally decided on the Parisienne French Toast which was a fantastic idea. A huge, freshly baked croissant smushed flat and then dipped in a cinnamon egg batter and then fried. Dusted with powder'd sugar, it didn't need any more butter or syrup. It was very melt-in-your-mouth yummy. Came with two eggs and sausage links for $9. I also tried the bf's chicken fried steak and hasbrowns and I would have to say that they were the best I ever had - on both accounts. The chicken fried steak wasn't greasy or fatty, and it was PACKED with flavor. They seasoned it... there is no other word than perfectly. The gravy and hashbrowns were both fresh and - no doubt - homemade.

ATMOSPHERE: The sun is out, Spring is in the air - it's time for lazy Sunday breakfasts outside. Bill's got a patio AND they're open till 3PM for breakfast! Our waters and coffee was constantly filled. The service was soo friendly and regulars were greeted warmly. I can't wait to be a regular! And last but not least, I must mention the tequila! A river of tequila flows through Bill's... don't be surprised if you're offered a shot! Breakfast and booze... genius!
