Fave For Breakfast

I had an egg scramble w/ bread and coffee and it was very good. The place is relaxing and comfortable. People working behind the counter are friendly.

We were never received at the entrance and had to find a seat on our own. Cappuccino was ordered twice and an easy request (only one drop of coffee) was never understood, and the sugar also requested thrice never came and we had to do on our own getting it from another table. Even a simple order of a ready-made... More

Was visiting Monterey and my daughter-in-law found this place on her mobile app. Sort of a hippie vibe to the place and yet I felt like I was in someone's home. We were fortunate to be on a 'tourist' time clock, as there was a wait for our food, but by golly it was worth every morsel. My husband had... More

Seem like the place is only surfing on the "natural-home-made" wave but is out of tune. Oatmeal was dry and heavy, coffee took hours to come, service was totally unprofessionnal, unorganized (tables seem to be randomly served no matter the arrival order which is both amazing and rather frustrating) and you won t get much smiles here. Food was nothing... More

The other day I had worked in the morning at an event at the Monterey Fairgrounds with my husband who is a vendor. I had to go to work at my hotel from 3-11 that day, and I left the event by 2:15. I was hungry and felt like I needed a break between the two jobs. I went into... More

This was our favorite place for breakfast during our stay in Monterey. Delicious coffee, homey atmosphere, and great food.

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
