Los Gatos Cafe is breakfast food from a short order cook and nothing more. What's interesting is they have the audience to upgrade their menu and really take it to the next level. Eggs, pancakes, waffles and heavy uninteresting potatoes has had its day. There are so many things they could do to upgrade their menu.. Gluten free pancakes and... More

The wait time is worth the food. Fresh, large, delicious portions, pleasant, acommodatinig waitpersons. Reasonable prices. Highly recommend. I only wish this restaurant could expand their seating capacity. I also wish they were open for dinner.

A friend of mine invited me for breakfast at Los Gatos Cafe early last week. She is a resident of Los Gatos for more than 20 years after moving from Pittsburgh, PA. So, at 9 AM sharp, we met in front of the Cafe. Seems the server knows lots of people by calling their first names. Apparently the establishment has... More

For many years the Los Gatos Cafe has been serving up hearty breakfasts that are generous and perhaps filled with too many calories but it never fails to please. It is fun place during the week for us locals in Los Gatos but will proof to be a wait on weekends to be seated. For the nice weather they have... More

I live within 5 minutes of this restaurant on Blossom Hill Rd. and although I don't eat out often, when I treat myself to breakfast or lunch, I go here. Always outstanding. Of course it is popular and therefore, there is often a short wait. It's worth the wait. Prices are very reasonable for Los Gatos !

We have been going to the LG Cafe for twenty years . It is a huge favorite of locals. Giant portions of freshly prepared food is their trademark. Not fancy. Just great! Packed on the weekends so go by 8.

This cafe is number one on my 'must eat breakfast here at every opportunity' list when in Los Gatos. Everything is superlative - the food preparation, portion size, and value. I have only had breakfasts here - corned beef hash, eggs and flank steak, eggs benedict, pancakes - and the herbed homefries with turmeric are fabulous. Just once in your... More

We stopped here for a quick bite on the way to Pebble Beach. This was the best meal we had while in California. Everything was excellent.

I'm visiting from England and staying with some friends who live in Los Gatos. This morning will be my 5th visit to Los Gatos cafe (uptown) on this visit - went a fair few times last year as well! The food is always excellent, well priced, and the staff are really friendly and provide great service. French toast sandwich and... More
