After shuttering due to a kitchen fire back in 2013, El Cerrito diner Nibs Restaurant has found a new home at 3112 Market St. in West Oakland.

As Berkeleyside reports, the husband-and-wife team that currently owns Nibs bought the decades-old establishment back in 2000, operating it for more than a dozen years before a fire shut it down.

After closing the original Nibs, Alex and Hannah Yook ran San Pablo's Alex's Giant Burger. Now, they've brought Nibs back, to the space vacated by Ivy Moon.

Like the original, the new Nibs serves up classic American diner fare. Stop in for breakfast offerings like omelets, pancakes and French toast, or for lunchtime fare like burgers, sandwiches and salads.

With a five-star rating out of eight reviews on Yelp so far, Nibs' new incarnation has already made a good impression.

Tom Y., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Feb. 25, wrote, “Great food and warm customer service at reasonable prices. What more can one ask for?"

Yelper Rhommel C. noted, "I'm so happy that a place like this is in the neighborhood! The owners are so sweet and welcomed me instantly as I walked in."

Interested? Stop by to welcome the new business to the neighborhood. Nibs Restaurant is open from 7 a.m.–3:30 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m.–3 p.m. on Saturday. (It's closed on Sunday.)
