It's such a disappointment when you read glowing reviews only to visit the restaurant and feel underwhelmed. I tried the granola pancakes that a lot of people raved about. It was ok. Nothing memorable. My son got the infamous biscuits. I tried a little and it was dry. My husband seemed to like the huevos rancheros. The service was fine.... More

Everything was locally sourced and extremely fresh and tasty. Also my meal came out from the kitchen piping hot and hadn't been sitting under a heat lamp like will happen at some big chain restaurants. Both entrees that we had were made fresh, came out piping hot just off the stove ready to eat, and were Oh So Tasty!!!

My wife and I came here after leaving Monterey on our way down the Big Sur coast towards San Luis Obispo. I had the extreme biscuits and gravy which were the best I've ever had! My wife had the cinnamon french toast which she really enjoyed. Really good coffee too. I wasn't aware this place was on DDD so check... More

This is my go-to breakfast place when I'm in the area. Friendly, dog-friendly, and great food. Lovely seating outdoors on a sunny terrace, and cozy seating indoors for a chillier day. Terrific French toast, Benedicts, and other classic egg breakfasts. Highly recommend.

If you look for honest fresh breakfast this is the place, a long time local favorite and great food, fresh, seasonal fruit and veggies, its a little hidden in the Barnyard Shopping Center. Great friendly waiters and priced right.

Living nearby I had never really heard about this place until I saw it on Diners, Drive ins,and Dives on Food Network. They showcased their biscuits and gravy which is my husband's favorite so we went on a Thursday. I have to say I was a little disappointed honestly, I don't like to give bad reviews, especially for my locals... More

I eat breakfast here frequently with my husband or friends. My favorite dish is the eggs Florentine, which, like many of their other dishes, can be made with only whites at no extra charge. There are many choices of omelets. Make sure you try the cheddar cheese biscuit with them. You can also choose spicy potatoes or a fruit cup... More

Had this on my list because I saw on Food Network, Triple D. Located at lower level in the Barnyard shopping center. Great food, hearty portions and very reasonable prices. Nice staff but seemed a little short handed when we were there. Large inside seating along with patio dining. Serves breakfast all day along with lunch. No dinner service. Enjoyed... More
