Friendly, great service...Awsesome.

This was in a great location in the beautiful Barnyard Shopping Village. We ate outside and it was perfect. Food was excellent. We had a few bees interested in the Banana Walnut pancake, but no worries...it's good to see the bees. :)

We ate here 3 years ago and the atmosphere and food was better. This time the food was average the service was average and the whole experience was average. The only thing not average was the price - shame.

I can't believe I have yet to review my favorite breakfast spot. My husband and I have been coming here for years, it is probably our favorite breakfast place on the peninsula. Now that I work right around the corner I find myself here even more frequently. I typically go with the omelet-have had mostly every one they have or... More

Fantastic breakfast! In a week long trip, this was our best breakfast, and possibly our best meal. I didn't know that this was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, but after eating there, I can see why. Great biscuits and gravy (lots of sausage), omelets, and coffee. Also, this out-of-the-way restaurant had terrific service - friendly, prompt, and efficient. Relaxing... More

Great breakfast menu. Located in a very charming shopping village and away from the touristy area of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Easy and no stress parking. High quality food. (I am not a junky breakfast type and I prefer to eat healthy food.)

The family was looking for a late breakfast and happened across this wonderful hidden gem. Menu was so filled with options it was hard to decide. We each ordered something different; crab cake eggs Benedict, extreme biscuits and gravy, granola, blueberries and banana pancakes and thick cut cinnamon French toast. Everything was delicious and the servings were large and filling.... More

This place is very pricey but the portions sizes are huge. Every dish could be shared by 2 people. There was so much left over, that we didn't have to go out for breakfast the next day!

My 10 year old has a gourmet palate for really great Eggs Benedict...as do I. We love this restaurant's eggs benedict; their poached eggs are perfectly cooked and the Benedict sauce is delicious. He substitutes the bacon instead of the ham and I get the veggie version. The last two times we visited he asked to go there both mornings... More
