When Dean’s opened its door in the mid 1950s, Pleasanton was a small, country town. Fifty-plus years later, Dean’s is still serving breakfast all day in its comfortable, oversized booths, and patrons line up on weekends for their brunch fix. The vast omelet menu includes every filling from Polish sausage to salami, clams, chorizo, and avocado. If you’re craving a sweet wake-me-up, there are pancakes and Belgian waffles topped with whipped cream and strawberries. At lunch, Dean’s offers appealing oldies like the stacked clubhouse or a French burger (named for its toasted French roll) served with fries and a green salad. For a walk down memory lane, order an old-fashioned root beer float or an ice cream sundae. Breakfast and lunch daily.
