Great Food

They have a small town atmosphere with great food. Their burgers are always good and their french fries are great. They have incredible shakes that you can mix up the flavors. The owners are very nice people and they try to make you feel welcome when you come in.

A quick and easy breakfast. Fast service, good food, noisy and usually crowded, but if you do not crave fancy this will meet your news.

Love the local's places when we travel. There are a few to choose from in AG. Sorta like "Cheers" where everybody knows your name! We were visiting friends from the area and enjoyed a very filling breakfast. No bad food here! Would be happy to eat here again!

The menu is classic diner but the portions are big and the staff is friendly. However, the tiny restaurant can be very crowded on weekends when the area fills up with tourists attracted to the local beaches and other outdoor activities.

Definitely the local breakfast joint. Like Cheers, everyone knows your name. We met a classmate for food and business. Friendly service, food comes right away and special orders no problem. Our friend will only eat charred toast and that's what he got. If I lived here, I'd like that you know everybody. It really did used to be the bus... More

This little gem has great, reasonably priced breakfasts. Try the Popeye omelette---ground beef, fresh spinach, and cheese. But everything I've tried is great!

We visited this restaurant after reading all the great reviews on TripAdvisor. I highly recommend this quaint little restaurant for breakfast. The food was excellent, the service was good. We went at 11:30 and avoided all the long lines, were able to sit right down. We will be returning to this restaurant whenever we are in the area.

Great local spot for breakfast. Good breakfast at a fair price. The Arroyo Grande Village Cafe has been a local hang out for ages...A history ...of Characters show up..Friendly atmosphere with Character...Characters...A one time area of ranchers which has succumbed to development and remodeled older homes...The village of Arroyo a great quick stop with a breakfast at the Village Cafe...

The café is only open for breakfast and lunch. I enjoy breakfast of eggs, sausage, hash browns and coffee. You won't find this meal better anywhere else. The café is small, 7 booths and several tables, but it is worth the wait if you come during their busy period.

Small old town feel with great breakfast and great service. Get there early because the lines to get a table get long.
