San Bernardino is a city of 68 square miles, so it is not difficult to miss a restaurant hidden off of the 215 Freeway. But if you don’t visit Alice’s Restaurant hidden off of Inland Center Drive west of the freeway, you are missing out on great food and fantastic service.
Alice’s is an independent, locally owned diner that has been at this location for decades. It is well known to locals and both the food and its employees are simply wonderful. It’s so popular that when we thought of visiting for brunch on New Years Day and found it closed for the holiday, we were one of six cars in that drove into the cul-de-sac with the very same gastronomical goals.
On our latest visit, we enjoyed a late breakfast of omelets and biscuits and gravy. Alice’s was very busy, but they managed to seat us in a few minutes and serve us in short order. Our servers were friendly and attentive, and quick to refill our coffee. The food was hot and they served it just as we requested.
Alice’s is only open for breakfast and lunch until 3:00 PM on most days. But if you want to experience Route 66 dining in a classic setting and service the way it always used to be, we highly recommend you give Alice’s a visit.
