Breakfast in Lompoc.

We found this "local gem", on Trip Advisor". We were advised the wait would be 15 minutes. 2 minutes and we were seated. Coffee was served immediately. Even though they were busy, our breakfast was served in less than 15 minutes. Scrambled eggs were fluffy, biscuit with ham, cheese and... read more

Love the breakfast and the service! Always topnotch and worth a return visit. I've returned here several times but can't seem to branch out from my favorite breakfast. ....corned beef hash. Was at an event catered by American Host during September. It was EXCELLENT! The salmon and salad were definitely note worthy.

Always a great meal, always busy! Don't get to visit as much as I like, but each time I do, I'm never disappointed.

My wife and I were there for breakfast and the food was fair. Nothing special. The bill was $19, not too bad. My first mistake, not including picking this place, was not keeping the receipt. My CC statement came in and my total was $30. I always leave a tip, but not $11 on a $19 bill. Nothing I can... More

I visit family twice a month (hour drive) and I make sure my arrival revolves around having breakfast here. The food is great, the portions are large, and I don't know how they do it based on the number of people they serve but the food is always piping hot, I love it. There is always a line waiting for...

Get the Host Breakfast and don't plan on having lunch. This is the Lompoc Power Breakfast spot. You'll see farmers, cops and winemakers--and that's the best advertising in the world! Great big fluffy omelettes, and the only place my wife will eat Biscuits and Gravy on the Central Coast. The best around! Good lunch too, but I hit it up... More

The food is good but not exceptional in any way. Sometimes the food is a little greasy but then many people like that and think it is more home cooked that way. It's a little restaurant where you can sit at the bar and eat or a table in a not so private setting. The restaurant is a couple blocks... More
