Mayor's place-hometown breakfast place

Very small house turned into a restraunt. Inside is cramped and doesn't have a lot of air-circulation. Very nice outside patio. Food is tasty, comfort fare. Wait staff is very nice and accomodating. Good place to meet locals. I met a WW2 vet there who had landed in Normandy on "D" Day!

My wife and I have been going to the Mayor's place for years and we have never been disappointed. From the dog friendly patio to the people friendly servers we have always enjoyed our meals here. It does close at like 2:00 or something like that so we have always had breakfast and it has curbed more than a few... More

The Mayors Place looks a little strange from the outside but when you walk into the restaurant it is has a very nice feeling. It serves a wonderful breakfast or brunch.

We went for a weekend breakfast soon after moving here. Closest location for breakfast beside fast food. The atmosphere was quaint, but the food just normal. I'd go again but not a favorite for breakfast.

We had high hopes after the reviews of this place, but we were very disappointed once we went in person. First off, it's smaller than my dining room at home (and a lot less cleaner too). The menu had what appeared to be some good choices, however, everything we tried to order was not available that day (we went at... More

We love this place. Gina is the best host ever. We have been going to the Major's Place since it opened and we love the home town and local charm. If we can't get to the restaurant we order to go and they know us by heart. Our food is always cooked to order. Everything is always perfect from the... More

The menu has a great selection and everything on they serve is great. Family run restaurant and the quality is clear. The seating inside is a bit tight but it doesn't feel crowded. Big portions.

You can spend lots of time just looking at all the stuff on the walls. The staff is very friendly and some are related. Definitely family owned. We had a BLT and a BLT with Turkey. I don't know why they grilled the turkey. I expected it to be cold. The bread was super fresh. The sandwiches was about 3.5... More

Driving around on a Saturday afternoon, my hubby and I were ready for a fun lunch. We found it at the Mayor's Place in Nipomo. From the outside, it looked like a real dive or a funny house you might see at Disney World in Orlando. Once inside, we were warmly greeted and seated immediately, albeit, we were lucky as... More

I laugh when I see people say it's a bit pricey.......you get what you pay for and you get a lot for your money at the Mayor's Place! The food is great as is the staff, that is if you like a place where they treat you like your part of their family. If you take your dog everywhere you... More
