Huge portions

Nice little place that serves freshly made breakfast and lunch that are nearly two meals! Nice ambience of fireplace, cushioned benches, glass-covered white tablecloths, flowers. Because everything is made to order, service is slower than at some places, but the food is worth the wait!

We went for a business lunch and decided to give Amy's a try. The food was great, our server was very friendly. We will definitely go back again.

This is a very charming cafe in a good location. However, the food is very mediocre, especially for the price. New owners took over Amy's Patio Cafe over a year ago, but the innovative menu items are gone. It has always been a little on the pricey side, but the quality of the food doesn't support the price these days.... More

Amy's is our go-to weekend breakfast spot, down the street from our house. We love it. We have been going for 8 years, ever since it opened. Terrific egg dishes, great waffles and pancakes in a comfortable attractive dining room. The service is excellent and relaxed. They know their regulars!

This is a wonderful restaurant for breakfast and lunch, unknown for dinner. It is great because they have incredible salads as well as good soups and sandwiches. Parking can be difficult, but it is worth the effort. Service is good.

Ate here once because it looked cute every time I drove by. It's downhill from the hike my friend and I do often, so when we got off the trail around 9 on a Saturday we went to Amy's. Place was nearly empty, which should have been a warning. I ordered a California omelet, with veggies and cheese and avocado.... More

A good place to go for a relaxing, creative, and delicious breakfast or brunch. Even before you order your meal, they will bring a large piece of their delicious zucchini bread to you.

Tasty inventive food, fresh with daily specials. I'm glad I went on a Monday for brunch, figured it would be packed on a weekend ( I asked, and the owner said yes). The prices are reasonable, the ambiance is beautiful, and you definitely get the local feel of an ohana care. Loved it! Can't wait to come back and try... More

This is a family restaurant? The Gourmet family maybe! Small, carefully edited menu, with something for everyone anyway.Sublime food, relaxed service, charming room.

Nice find for breakfast (though I supposed I would not have just found it if not for the fact that I asked someone in the neighborhood for a breakfast spot recommendation - the place is on a corner and somewhat set back so not easily seen from the street). The good: -- Service was incredibly friendly - cheerful and helpful.... More
