I had been seeing numerous advertisements for this restaurant and decided to do something new for Sunday Brunch. First of all, when we arrived we were handed our menus and pointed to our table. At first I was like, OK, not a big deal. It became a part of the bigger picture. Once we sat ourselves, it took awhile for... More

Great breakfasts and lunches. Specialties include granola pancakes, fritatas and French toast. Cosy atmosphere in the Barnyard Shopping area.

We stopped here before hiking at Point Lobos. Our waitress was cheerful and attentive. We both ordered the French toast which was delicious and came with a side of fruit. The coffee was good too. Lots of locals were eating here, so that speaks for itself. We recommend it for a quiet place for breakfast.

We went to From Scratch off of the trip advisor review, and we are so glad we did! It's a bit hard to find; park by Alegro pizza and walk into the center of the barnyard towards the back and through a covered walkway. The food is very good; probably the best breakfast I've had in a restaurant and I'm... More

We went here because of Trip Adivsor. We had a hard time finding it and a man took us right to the door. The food was excellent and huge portions. The crustless quiche was like no other. The black bean soup was enough for a family. But being from Florida - they needed some chopped onions. The staff was super... More

Be prepared to wait if you go for brunch on the weekends. Bring a jacket as outdoors can be very breezy waiting. Once you are seated though, just sit back and relax. The coffee is terrific. The eggs benedict are excellent, as are the omelets. There is happy noise about which means peole are having a good time. Prices are... More

Everything here was so fresh! The place was packed so the service was a little slow, but it was well worth the wait. We will definitely be back. Versatile menu and very healthy but tasty eating.

I stopped at this restaurant only because I happened to be at the location, and there were several parties sitting outside. I was very happy to find such a gem in a shopping center. The food was very good, the combinations were inventive, and the service was attentive but not overpowering. I would definitely recommend this to friends.
