Had breakfast here twice during our two day stay in Monterey. Excellent food, freshly prepared from local ingredients and, for once, the portions weren't overwhelming. Friendly staff - highly recommended. Great music in the background as well!

Hi, If you mean the Taco Truck in the nearby parking lot down the road a bit, yes. But never sure of their hours. Otherwise, I don't know about a truck always being there.
