What delicious food, what a delightful staff. Everyone's warm and friendly. Clientele tends to be middle-aged, middle class hipsters, so it's a pleasant crowd to be around. Don't you dare leave without trying their cinnamon rolls. My personal favorite is the tostada omelette and I'm not even a vegetarian.

I've been coming here for breakfast on Sundays for more than 30 years. It is a family tradition. Best breakfast, and the cinnamon buns on Sunday are a MUST.

Friendly service. Yummy breakfast fare. The wait staff and (I think the owner) rounds on customers frequently. They are very attentive to needs. The order turn around is quick! They make their own muffins and they are delicious. Only caveat, "cash only". Kind of a bummer we didn't see any signs posted. ( correction: there was a small sign posted... More

Very fresh food, excellent, relaxed atmosphere and large portions. My husband had breakfast and I had lunch and we both had food to take with us as the portions were large. Remember to take cash or checks as they don't accept credit or debit cards.

I have always wanted to try this restaurant, but there is always a huge line outside. We went after a long walk and I loved the quaint feeling when you walk in. The server was excellent and we had breakfast and lunch at the same table. I believe the salad was one of the largest portion one in this area.... More

We had the special (tofu scramble with corn, tomato, zucchini, avocado, and basil), my hubs had the tofu fun. The server was super knowledgeable about what can be made vegan-so some of the menu can be veganized. Def recommend!

What a delightful surprise for the 6 of us - great lunches all around. The salad that comes with our sandwiches was HUGE, fresh and yummy. 2 of us had the stuffed cheese sandwich which had avocado and tomatoes on it. The perfect comfort food. The others had the soup of the day and practically licked their cups. Staff were... More

Great food. Easily the best breakfast in Santa Cruz. The omelettes are my favorite, although my wife loves the french toast. The fried potatoes are also very tasty, although I almost always have to take them home to finish later. Daily specials are inventive and delicious.
