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.

Went early on Sunday and it was packed. I was first in line for a table. Everything was tasty and I didn't realize this place was featured on the food network. I can see why. Try the home-made cheddar cheese biscuit-you can get an english muffin or sourdough toast anywhere!

Great dog friendly breakfast spot. I called ahead of time to put my name on the waiting list. When we arrive we were promptly seated outside. As we waited for our food we noticed a lots of people arriving with their dogs. We had the crab benedict and french toast. Both were very good. There was no dog menu, but... More

Awesome breakfast - Pancakes with fresh blueberries, Pancakes with bananas baked in, everything truly from scratch as their name states. Amazing hot chocolate! It is located in a very nice area to walk around and see other shops. This is a "not to miss" place for breakfast.

Great service and food. Sat by the gas fireplace and enjoyed a Carmel omelet. Expect to spend $15 a person. Very worth it.

Great location and owners are hands on. Restaurant was recently profiled on Food Channel's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! Breakfast is the best but the home made Chili is also great.

Delicious breakfast. Even on a rainy Sunday there were lines - fortunately we got there early and were seated right away. The portions are H-U-G-E and ample enough to share. The cheese biscuits are light and fluffy - I believe there's a recipe on the Diners, Drive-ins & Dives website from their feature on From Scratch. The staff was very... More

It was good that we decided to go there when they opened on Sunday morning because within 30 minutes, it was filled and had a wait list. We were from out of town but many of the others there were regulars and said it is always filled. We both had Eggs Benedict (One Crab, One Vegetarian) and the eggs were... More
