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

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 visited The Wild Plum every morning during our recent stay in Monterey and sampled something different on each visit - without exception... More

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

Wow we popped up for afternoon tea after an exhausting shop and try on session downstairs at snooty frox. The food was amaizing, beautifully presented and everything even the little flowers were edible. Afternoon tea was a real treat. I've will be returning very soon

We discovered this place by chance and I was very impressed. The breakfast was full of flavour and was really well presented. Good portions. Potatoes were delicious and coffee re-fills were a pleasant suprise. I would definitely return.
