Tasty food at a reasonable price

We've enjoyed this restaurant on previous visits to Monterey and have found that they have maintained their high standards through the years. They seem to use quality ingredients in their menu items. On this last visit my wife had a large salad with chicken and I had a grilled eggplant sandwich... read more

I was so sad when we saw that she was closed on the Tuesday we were there. We were looking forward to her cuisine. She was in the shop and she told us that the reason for closing was that the kitchen was being painted that day. So it's not clear if she's in fact closed on Tuesdays. The printed,... More

First, let me say that I typically write short and to the point reviews, but this time I feel compelled to say a bit more. This place is a gem. My family is doing its best to maintain a GMO free diet; so, we ventured into this small restaurant for lunch. I ordered the fajitas, my husband and son ordered... More

We stopped here on Memorial Day for a breakfast before driving back up to SF and was pleasantly surprised. It is only a small restaurant so can be a bit busy, we had a wait of ten minutes for a table but it was not a problem as we were pre warned of the wait. The food is excellent and... More

This place looks cute and sits on a street with several other cafes and restaurants. We wanted a nice cafe-style breakfast while on our trip to Monterey. We were sorely disappointed with this place...we had to wait more than ten minutes before we were acknowledged (there were only two other tables), and when we sat down...we weren't given menus. Wait... More

The food was modestly priced for what you got to eat. We had a half sandwich and a cup of soup that was very generous and oh so tasty. It is small, but we got a table and were served relatively quickly. Outstanding food and good service.

We saw this gem when we checked into our hotel across the street and were so glad we decided to have breakfast. It was unique and delicious. The coffee was bold and fresh. The food was made to order, super fresh and cooked perfectly. Pamela the owner was working hard, very friendly and obviously very good at what she does.... More
