Did I mention Banana Walnut Pancakes?

All the pancake dishes are delish, but I only come to S or L for one breakfast item... The Banana Walnut Pancakes! It's like a party in your mouth and a breakfast menu item that should be savored by anyone who loves foo foo flapjacks.

Best breakfast ever! Great atmosphere! Great food, great service. Get there early since everyone has the same idea. We are there two of the three days we were in town.

This place is always crowed and sometimes we have to sit inside. But it's worth for waiting outdoor patio seats. Love my mimosa with eggs benedict! Staff always running around and not easy to get their attention. Gives you more time just sit back and enjoy your meal & ocean view.

Our granddaughter, my wife and I went to Schooner or Later for breakfast while on a drive from L.A. south on the PCH. It is not terribly obvious where to enter the establishment, but we finally found the hostess desk and registered. The place was very busy, but it only took about 20 minutes until we were seated. The view... More

I had a salad with crab and shrimp. Shrimp was the little non tasty kind, the crab was better, salad was plan old salad.... More

Nice place for eating. We ate on the patio and I was glad I brought a light sweatshirt. Ordered eggs with bacon and the eggs came just the way I ordered them. I deducted a point for the cold bacon and the fruit cup which wasn't ripe. All else was very good. Waitress was efficient and refills came regular the... More

Saw this on Food Network's Triple D. So.... Be prepared to wait as others saw it too. Nice view from restaurant, waterfront dining. Food choices are diverse with breakfast selections being nothing short of amazing . Try any of the egg benedict dishes.

My husband and I decided to try lunch the other day at Schooner of Later. We previously had only enjoyed lunch. My husband order the patty melt and enjoyed it (he said he wished he had ordered one to go). I tried the chicken nachos. They were a little different but tasty. We both enjoyed our meals and I think... More
