Thought we would have a real cowboy breakfast,NOT!!!! My hubby and Sis ordered the hash and eggs,supposedly home made. It came to the table as chopped ham,not sure if it was real ham looked like those sandwich slices you buy in the store. My eggs cooked half almost raw the other one was hard boiled. Not such a special treat.

This is our favorite breakfast spot on the Monterey Peninsula. Only open for breakfast and lunch, this locals restaurant is small but big portions. Try the "Wheel"...6 pancakes, 3 eggs, bacon & sausage. Cash only!!

Amazing cowboy themed decor inside and out, staff who fall over themselves to be helpful and polite the most wide ranging American breakfast menu you will find. Iced water and coffee are in plentiful supply and once ordered the breakfast comes in speedy time. Whether waffles, pancakes, fried chicken or biscuits and gravy all is perfectly cooked and presented. The... More

It's my understanding that Wagon Wheel Coffee Shop is one of several successful breakfast and lunch restaurants of this family. The breakfast was phenomenal and a great value. It's another one tucked away in Carmel Valley you don't want to miss. Eggs Benedict according to my 8 year old were the best. For me, I was waivering between the omelet... More

We had a great feast of fresh food for breakfast at the Waggonwheel Cafe. The portions were very generous! The staff very friendly. I would recommend the cinamon French toast and the pancakes! I thought the food was extremely great value and not expensive (somebody posted that it was). A must visit and be hungry!!

Two families had breakfast here and we were all very happy with our selections - pancakes huge and delicious, eggs Benedict amazing, huevos rancheros really yummy. Ambience is cozy and authentic. Lots of fun stuff on the walls. Service top notch - super friendly and efficient. Will definitely go back.

They place is small and cozy. Love all the options but the pancakes, biscuits and hash are delish. Not for calorie-counters or pretentious folks. Come early or wait. The service is very quick, though. We will be back again and again.

This place opens at 630AM. The earliest around here. Small vintage looking country style restaurant, with hearty food, friendly and very fast service. I love their poached eggs, banana pecan dollar pancakes and the Hungarian Omelet. Their coffee is average, and fruit selection is so-so, but otherwise a very nice and popular place to eat.
