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... read more

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

Very accomodating, good breakfast, very busy, but we got our food in a reasonable amount of time. We go as often as possible, we enjoy bring the pooches.

I promised myself that this was my last visit. it's the end for me. I ordered Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, Hash Browns, and an English Muffin for Breakfast. The Eggs arrived half cooked and runny. It took at least 5 minutes to attract the attention of my server, and finally told her they were uncooked. She asked if I wanted then... 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

Small local restaurant feeling; food was hot and served in a timely fashion - enough variety on the menu and portions were mostly fine. The omelets were indeed fluffy and the bacon thick! However, I was missing my omelet's third ingredient (spinach) and the 3-egg scrambled looked like 2 eggs - although I was told otherwise. So, this lowered it... More

My family's 3rd generation local to the area, so I have eaten here numerous times over the last 10? 12? 15? years. Food is classic diner Americana. Place is clean, portions are wonderfully large and possibly most importantly, they will substitute. They'll even make you a pot of extra strong coffee if you ask! Bacons always crisp and the service... More
