I remember going when Hubcaps first opened and it was the new kid on the block- now the place is a Walnut Creek institution. I tried breakfast here recently and was amazed at how great the food was. Hubcaps follows the typical 50's diner look with shiny booth seats, a front counter, and friendly waitstaff. But the menu is updated and contains lots of appealing items. Much, much better than the greasy food found at Mel's or the like. The belgian waffles were delicious, as were the pancakes. My boyfriend loved his Mexican style omelet and thought the flavors were awesome. Nice to find a place with solid food, good prices, and regular sized portions.
