We were looking for a place for breakfast and as we drove down Lighthouse and passed this restaurant it shouted "local". What a delightful experience. The owner has been there for 44 years and knew nearly everyone there. Hugs and hellos to all and after having breakfast there all three days we visited we felt like a 'local' also.

We paid the price of a good restaurant, and the food was horrible. Clam chowder was like paste, calamari steak seemed like it was cooked in very old oil (I had the same dish the night before in Monterey and it was excellent), and the wines by the glass were expensive in price and tasted like super cheap wine that...

Ate here for the first time on a drizzly Saturday afternoon. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere comfortable. My wife and I enjoyed omelettes - the Joe's and the tostada. The side of hashed-brown potatoes were great. A good meal at a good price. We'll be back.

We managed to have breakfast and dinner here. Breakfast was great. I had the chorizo scramble which was excellent. Hubby had eggs benedict, which were fabulous. Dinner was lobster ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs, both of which were great. Atmosphere is fabulous as it really in an old Victorian. Service was discrete but excellent.

We did something totally different this time while visiting this restaurant, always one of our faves. We just had soup and bread for dinner and it was . . . . AWESOME. The service was impeccable and we enjoyed as we always do as they make you feel like the world is somewhere else.

We had Sunday breakfast there and after about a 5-7 minute wait, we had a table in the small place. Out waitress (Cassandra, I think) was sweet and did a good job. Coffee was strong (good) and food delicious and fresh. I had crab cakes Benedict and crab was clearly fresh/tasty. Friend had buckwheat pancakes with fresh raspberries and was... More

My wife and I were very happy that we found this spot and would definitely be regulars if we lived near Pacific Grove. The family that owns the restaurant are generational and the history is written on the menu. Service is as good as the delicious food. Recommend the Eggs Benedict Yummy!

Eaten at the Victorian Corner for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, The place is beautiful and usually busy. Usually with my wife, but another couple is always fun. Regular breakfast, with everything mid priced compared to others in Pacific Grove.. Dinner was great, and low to mid priced for us. Good food, a great place to visit with on Lighthouse Ave.

Perfect American breakfast! We had huevos rancheros, hash browns, veggie omlette, bacon..all great! Better than the ones we had in S.F. or elsewhere in Cali. Perfect before starting The 17 Mile Drive.
