Recently I was in Tehachapi and decided to get lunch at Henry’s Cafe. I already went to the Villiage Grill, so I decided this would be a fun stop. While none of the diners in Tehachapi have the name diner, if they think, act, feel like a diner…they are a diner.
Henry’s Cafe (Tehachapi) Atmosphere: B
Henry’s Cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating available. The outdoor seating is plastic card tables, but it’s always appropriately spaced. Inside Henry’s Cafe, there are plenty of booths, tables, and a bar. Henry’s Cafe was also all dressed up for the Holidays, and I always appreciate a diner that does that.
Henry’s Cafe (Tehachapi) Coffee: X
I didn’t order coffee this time around since it was already 85 degrees (in October!). I could have ordered an iced coffee, but I like hot coffee.
Henry’s Cafe (Tehachapi) Food: A
Henry’s Cafe menu has everything you imagine in a diner. There is an all-day breakfast, including pancakes, eggs, and omelets. Plus, you can even build your own omelet. Lunch options included several types of salad, burgers, and sandwiches. I saw someone with one of their salads, and it looked massive! You can find Henry’s Cafe full menu here.
I was in more of a lunch mood and decided to order the turkey, cranberry, and bacon melt. I haven’t had one of those at a diner before! It came with exactly what it sounded like turkey, cranberry, bacon, and swiss cheese all on sourdough bread. It was a great sandwich, and the bread tasted good. I was thrilled with my decision. The french fries were crispy and not overdone.
Henry’s Cafe (Tehachapi) Service: A
The hostess was friendly, and my food was ready for pickup when I arrived.
