ISO Hash Browns in Oakland
My son loves hash browns and our adventure on Saturday reminded us how hard they are to come by. I miss Dave's Coffee Shop and the other place down on Broadway that has long since closed. We don't want to go to Denny's or IHOP but it would be great if they also had pancakes too. Any recommendations. We'ver ruled out anything in Montclair and Full House on MacArthur as not being hash brown friendly.
The only hash browns that I've had are at 900 Grayson in Berkeley, and they're good. I think that they have pancakes on the extras menu (down at the bottom), and they definitely have waffles.
I'd say, if you don't want to wait in line, try Rico's in Oakland. I haven't made it there for breakfast, but at least one report thought the hash browns had potential even though they weren't there yet;
and I have loved, loved, loved my lunches there. You are very unlikely to have a wait, and it would be kid friendly.
If you do try their hash browns, please report back!

Had decent hash browns last weekend at Jim's coffee shop, off of Park in Alameda. Pretty crowded on Saturday morning, but it has a lot of seats.
I had the chicken fried steak and eggs, and I really liked the cream gravy on my hash browns. My son's pancakes were pretty so-so though. Not expensive and the service is quick.
