Nice corned beef hash in the Barn Yard shopping area. The location is about a mile south of the village on the other (east) side of Highway 1.

We were staying around the corner so based on a TA review we came here. OMG! Crab Benedict was amazing and we got one huge blueberry pancake to share - heavenly! The waitress was fast and friendly. The ambiance is fun and nostalgic with great 50's and 60's playing. Would so come back!!!

We had high hopes for this place and were looking forward to great fresh, local food and a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, it's not what we got. Our first visit was February 2014. It was a Sunday morning and expected a packed crowd, which is what we encountered. After being seated it took about 15 minutes for someone to ask us... More

The homemade biscuits with jam were amazing. Good espresso drinks, too. The restaurant is small but has a cute patio, too. Will... More

This is a breakfast/lunch place. Pricing and portions are very reasonable. Quality can be a little uneven. The salads are reliably good (although they missed putting avocado on my cobb one time). My husband and I often share a salad as it is quite big. Last visit I had the California Dip roast beef sandwich and it was excellent. Time... More

We saw an episode of DDD that featured this restaurant. Wife said we had to try it. Wife ordered the Dungeness crab omelette and I had the sausage patties with eggs over easy. The sausage patties are made in-house. Everything was as good as Guy Fieri says. My only complaint was the fly that kept bothering us while we were... More

Just an outstanding place for breakfast. Th omelettes are great and the Corn Beef Hash is fresh and perfectly prepared. The pancakes are thick, yet fluffy...tough to do This is just a very nice and relaxing spot for breakfast. The Service is wonderful and friendly....never an empty cup of coffee.
