The food is delicious. The waitresses friendly. Environment is typical beach coffee house.
The current owner is very patriotic but Mrs. Olsen's goes way back. A local favorite spot so expect to wait. Try to go on an off hour (late breakfast, early lunch, or late lunch) but they usually close at 2pm. Try the surfer's burrito but everything is good. The fresh fruit is by far the best fruit I have ever seen at a restaurant. There will be about a half hour wait on the weekends... but once you put your name on the list you can walk to the sand a few yards away.

I live here at the beach and used to eat here regularly. What was once a local gem with the BEST breakfasts has has taken a serious dive. Both our omlettes were tasteless, rubbery, and heaped with soaking wet, over-cooked spinach and generic tasteless tomatoes. The potatoes that used to be wonderfully crisp and crunchy were soft and laden with grease. Not only did our breakfasts look completely unappetizing on the plate, but they lacked any taste whatsoever. We sent them back but the patty melt that came as a replacement order was greasy and the onions weren't even fully grilled. WOW- who is cooking back there??? I know it's a busy kitchen but it has always been busy. That is no excuse to serve sloppy, overcooked food. What a shame. I hope they find a way to turn it back around or they will lose alot of regular customers.

Been going for 25 years. The same order every time: bacon, cheddar, and tomato scramble, with well-done potatoes, a side of salsa, and sourdough toast. Hard to beat. The wait can be brutal, particularly on weekends, and there are some funny quirks, like dairy substitute instead of milk for your coffee, and the OJ isn't fresh, but I've never left unsatisfied.

Mrs. Olson's is a quaint little beach house that will remind you of your grandmother's house.
The food is home cooked goodness and the waitresses are friendly and warm.
You will be welcomed back and probably recognized after a couple of trips.

Most people like this place. Service is slow and the wait is very long. Therefore, if you are not in a hurry and do not expect personalized service, this place should be okay
