Description

OC Weekly's Description

Rick's Atomic Cafe is an unassuming gem, a stunner of a mom-and-pop diner better-suited to Portland or Berkeley than a drab office complex. Running the place almost always by himself is Rick, whose black-framed glasses, close-cropped haircut and wiry body makes him look more like a Rust Belt steelworker than the soft-spoken gourmand he is. The back of each menu features his manifesto for local produce, and that commitment shows in the entrées-omelets, paninis, burritos, salads-and his service.

Tips from foursquare

  • Nic T. on 02/06/14

    Can be slow service at times. Better to call ahead if picking up food! But well worth the wait :)

  • Evan H. on 09/13/13

    Fresh food. Fresh baked cookies and pastries. Delicious no matter what you get.

  • Matt D. on 12/19/11

    Atomic burrito, nuff' said.
