Good food!

I like their organic menu. My husband had their pancakes, eggs, and apple sausage. I had the wild salmom with a bagel. They were both good dishes. I would go to this place again if I am in the neighborhood.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal here to start our day. The eggs with chorizo was delicious. My son really loved his breakfast burrito and managed to eat most of it, even though it was huge. We took baked goods to go for our road trip, and those were tasty as well. So glad we stopped here, and we would do... More

We just ate there today and we were so pleasantly impressed. This was our first time there and we will definitely be back ! As we were leaving the owner came in unloading her car with the help of staff. She is super friendly and I said where we were from . A little bit of Berkeley! All organic folks!

We are locals here in Monterey and eat at The Wild Plum at least once a week. I thought they were a total hidden gem until I realized that they were featured on Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives a year and a half ago!! The food is really really good, fresh, local and it is always a full plate. My favorite... More

We ordered apple seared pancakes which were delicious & a fritata (excuse spelling) my first time eating that. Not my style but was decent. I like more meat & flavor. Service was... More

While you wait for your food there is art on the ceiling and walls and flowers on the small tables to admire. We had a late breakfast - the roasted apple pancakes were fantastic. The salads looked beautiful. I would eat here regularly if I could.

We saw The Wild Plum featured on DD& D's, and we looked over their web site, so we gave it a try. What a mistake! We ordered their Roast Beef Sandwich and their "house specialty" House Ouesadilla. Pros: * Quiet - we were the only diners in the place. * The spinach salad that came with the Quesadilla was fresh.... More

Fun place for breakfast. More of a natural, health bent on traditional breakfasts. If you go on the weekend, expect to have a wait, outside.
