Best Pancakes In Pacific Grove So Far

When I dine out for breakfast I usually order something that I don't make at home and pancakes are on of those things. If you've read my other reviews, where I've ordered pancakes, you know I hadn't found pancakes I liked until now. The first time I ate breakfast at Toasties I ordered the short... read more

One word: OVERPRICED. We sat down, were given menus, and ignored for about 15 minutes despite the fact that it was nearly empty. Ended up leaving because of the prices. A simple order of bacon and eggs was over ten dollars. The place was very cramped, claustrophobic, and had a slightly odd odor. I would not recommend this place to... More

This is hime to a great basic breakfast. The locals in Pacific Grove know it well. My wife went there so much when we were building our house that the servers did not need to give her a menu. Not fancy, not a date spot, just good solid breakfast food.

We stopped over for breakfast and really enjoyed the food and the place. The kids got an "etch a sketch" (a very innovative and smart idea) and we got some great coffee and food. It also has a nice sit out where you can bring your pets.

We enjoyed a yummy breakfast here and they were open surprisingly early, 6:30 am. Our hotel had a terrible continental breakfast and we came in search of real food. The portions were generous and the service was friendly. I would return for sure!

For the last 35 years, every visit to the Monterey coast we have breakfast at Toasties....it's a tradition that started when my husband took me there for our very first breakfast on a date. The food is fresh, prepared the way you want it. The owners make you feel more like a guest than a customer. The Waffles are delicious... More

I came here one weekday morning to hopefully get a better breakfast than what i would get at a franchise diner. I would not mind paying a little more too but unfortunately this place was a dissapointment. Aside from the nice waitress everything else was below par. The bacon was dry and looked like it was a day old. The... More
