Each place has the same awesome menu. Food is... read more

The food was good and ample. The service was very good. The view over the trees is wonderful. I especially appreciated the noise free venue which is very suitable for holding meetings and having good friendly conversation

Good comfort food. The sandwiches were great. They have a large menu, so there's something for everyone. Decent pricing and good service for this family style restaurant.

Order the California Eggs Benedict! Consistently excellent. I lived in Los Gatos for 35 years and I know what I am talking about. A+ all the way!

I've been to this p[lace ten or fifteen times in the last 15 months. The food is very good. My favorites are the seafood benedict and the Italian sausage.

I have eaten here several times and it is not outstanding. They claim to have very good eggs benedicts but the use some kind of fake hollandaise sauce. Never trying that again. Mostly Ok but I don't like that it is cash only

Los Gatos Cafe is one of those breakfast places that has a wait to get a table because it's one of those "good breakfast places."

Whether staying in San Luis Obispo or driving by, go to the Los Gatos. There is a reason there is always a line to get in. It's really good. Only open for breakfast and lunch. A counter seat may save you some waiting time. Diner food at it's best!
