Absolutely fantastic service, delicious food and sweet atmosphere. Would dine again in a heartbeat! I even ordered a dish that was not listed on the menu and they had no trouble accommodating. And the bread... wow. :)

We ate breakfast twice at Mauricio's, once on the patio and once inside. They have the normal breakfast items, plus Eggs Benedict and my personal favorite - a chorizo omelet...to die for! They have a choice of home fries or hash browns, which is nice. The food was delicious and service was excellent.

This is a nice small restaurant in the middle of the shopping district in Pacific Grove. Has breakfast, lunch & dinner, and our family group ordered both breakfast & lunch items around lunchtime. Food is good, nothing fancy. Friendly staff & service.

It was Sunday and I decided to treat myself to breakfast and wanted something I don't fix at home so I took off to eat at one of my usual spots to find that they were full with a wait. I had read about Mauricio's in one of the online forums and decided to try it as it is in... More

After my first visit I was wowed! The food, the wine, the service all top notch. Because of that when I was driving home from San Francisco and had been stuck in traffic and was about to get stuck in traffic again I decided to stop for dinner until the traffic passed. The service was great, although as the increase... More

We stopped here by chance when we rolled into town. Hungry teenagers found exactly the fuel they needed here! Server was genuinely friendly and the cook brought out delicious cheese cake for the boys (so thoughtful!). A delicious meal and reasonably priced. I would certainly stop here again.

I have had the good fortune to eat here several times. The last time was 2 days ago. The service is always friendly and quick. The portions are nice, the food is delivered quickly. It is a nice spot to hit for a good breakfast.
