Excellent breakfast in a very popular cafe. Go for an outside table unless you don't mind some noise, but the quality of the food is worth it. Does not accept credit cards, but an ATM is handy.

I have now been here twice and love this place! Had French toast the first time and French pancakes(which is my new favorite). It is great food, it's fresh and well priced. Only two negatives; it's small and loud inside and no credit cards accepted. They are so busy that you write your name down yourself and wait in line,... More

My husband, 3 teens & I ate here on our way down the coast from San Jose. It was recommended by a local and he did NOT steer us wrong. We were warmly greeted by 2 different people and given a table right away. My husband had the Crab Benedict, I had the California Benedict, one son had the Flank... More

This place is a friendly and delightful place to eat in Los Gatos. I recommend the standard bacon and eggs. There is plenty of food, so don't worry about taking the extra home. Get there early on Sunday as the Los Gatos Cafe comes alive with customers.

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
