This is the best breakfast around. Everything is cooked perfectly. The hash browns are the best I've ever had! Brown and crispy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside. I love the house made jams and salsas in the little jars on the tables. They're generous with the butter on the toast. Excellent service here too.

If you have a bit of trouble finding a parking spot, you will be waiting to be seated for a while. This is normal, especially on weekends. The food and service are well worth the wait. We have eaten here more than a few times, and the meal has always been really good. This is a family-run operation, and the... More

Decent diner food, but not exceptional given the other choices in the area. The standout order was the skirt steak breakfast plate ordered by our son - lots of food, and the steak was perfect. My wife's veggie omelette with home fries was also tasty and well-prepared. I had a beef melt sandwich which was not very flavorful because the... More

Although this was initially the only breakfast place I could find that opened at six am, the food and service were so good that I went back and will return again. Huge sausage patties. Good eggs, toast, and has Browns. But the huevos rancheros is the breakfast for me. Mostly local clientele. Staff speaks both Spanish and English well. Easy... More

The food was delicious (breakfast), the coffee excellent, the atmosphere is fun and not too loud. There is also a free book exchange cart, and I picked up a title.

We come here often, but today I tried a sandwich. It was one of the best I've ever had. Normally we come for breakfast, or I normally get a salad. The staff is very friendly, and Paula the owner is always so pleasant! We frequent this restaurant because it's homestyle and family oriented. Many come from all over the Santa... More
