Enjoy a hearty breakfast at Los Gatos Cafe in two locations in Los Gatos. One on North Santa Cruz Ave. in the heart of town. And the other which we frequent more often is located 15662 Los Gatos Blvd, Los Gatos, CA 95032. Great idea for breakfast, brunch, lunch. Special Cinnamon Rolls. Enjoy

Mostly for brunch. Not much vegetarian for lunch. A few tables outside on the sidewalk to sit. Some portions really big, but also pricy.

My wife researched lunch venues while we were in Santa Cruz. So we took California 17 (incredible curvy and hilly and full of kamikaze drivers) and stopped at Los Gatos. (the story of The Cats is that people would dump off their pet cats around here and the town was full of stray cats) The Cafe was full of patrons... More

This cafe has all the traditional breakfasts plus more. The service is fast and efficient. Because it is always full and busy, it is noisy!

This is classic great diner food. We found this place on our drive thru to Capitola. It's a great lunch. The breakfast looked amazing too. I highly recommend you sample a few of the baked goods.

This place is well known by locals so you can expect to wait in line during weekend brunch. If you go during weekdays and early enough you ll find a spot. The reason fr their success is that the food is very good and prices reasonable. Good service too and warm ambiance.

If you find better Hash Browns and overall breakfast, please tell me quick... because I have never found anything that beats the Los Gatos Cafe on Santa Cruz in LG.

There is something phony about the cookie cutter qualities of most chains. There is something authentic and wonderful about the Los Altos Cafe. The breakfast menu is huge. It answers the question "How many breakfast options can a restaurant offer?" The wait staff reminded me of the traditional cafe with helpful and cheerful staff. The vegetarian frittata I ordered was... More
