Helen, Amie and I called in for lunch recently. This is a genuinely honest place, staff are great, food is plentiful and there are no pretensions. If you are looking for generous portions of honestly presented food then search no further! We tried a quesadilla,...More

Had breakfast here with the wife on a recent trip to Carpinteria, because my favorite breakfast place in Carpinteria, Cajun Kitchen, is gone. These guys do a pretty good job. The portions are good sized and the food is reasonably tasty.

Good food but consider eating indoors. Dog walkers on sidewalks let their huge dogs jump on you and drool on you while you try to eat. Owners side with dog owners over their own customers’ rights.

Low key, surfer themed place to eat a great breakfast. Eat inside or out. This is a very popular place for good reasons.

I've loved this place forever and during our annual weeklong stay in Carpinteria, we always eat here multiple times. This past week, we ate here four times for breakfast and I have to say, the service gets more spotty every year. The food was also...More
