Crowded, noisy, happy and tasty!

I am an occasional customer here and enjoy both breakfast and lunch. The staff are nice and the menu fairly extensive. I like the eggs Benedict and the bacon, among other choices - cooked perfectly. Good coffee, but I usually drink tea and it's not always hot enough. The wait staff are always... read more

Always crowded, but worth the wait. Large servings of well prepared food. We usually end up eating at the counter for faster service and interaction with the other folks at this place.

Four of us went for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday. The wait was about 20 minutes and was worth it. We were able to sit outside which I think was better. Omelets and Benedicts were all great and service was good. I would rate as the best breakfast in Los Gatos.

And I am a breakfast aficionado. Breakfast is my favorite restaurant meal, so I researched my Los Gatos options. We walked, on a beautiful day, from The Toll House Inn, a little bit of a hike, but nice. It was a Monday, so the wait was less than 5 minutes. I had Eggs Lorraine Benedict, and it was amazing.

Busy little cafe, seemed very popular. The food is good, and it is a good variety from which to choose. Staff is friendly, service is not lighting fast, but it is so pleasant, no one seems to mind!

My husband and I spent the night in Los Gatos because it was the closest available the night of the Dead Farewell Concert. We stopped in town for breakfast and were really impressed! What a lovely spot, with friendly service, scrumptious homemade bake goods and super fresh ingredients! The cherry-on-top of our amazing night!

If you don't eat here at least once on your trip you are missing out. We LOVE to eat breakfast here. Everything is really good but the Herb Potatoes and all their Benedict's are off the charts. It doesn't seem to matter when you come you will always find a line out the door but it's definitely worth the wait.... More

I go to the uptown location off LG Blvd where Iron Skillet used to be. It is larger and usually less wait. Same menu and both location (Downtown location is Cash Only!) amazing eggs benedict, omelets, scrambles, and coffee cakes, cinnamon roll (must share). Best breakfast in town.

LG Cafe has two locations in Los gatos - Uptown and Downtown. Both offer the same menu and the same quality food. Portions are good size and the food is absolutely delicious. Look no further for a great breakfast.

This is one of my favorite breakfasts spots. The menu is extensive, the portions are hearty and the service is very good. There is a wait on weekends but the wait is worth it.
