We had to wait until we were seated. There were a lot of workers around but no sign that said to seat ourselves. The menu was pricey and was a la carte. It didn't say that on the menu but perhaps I should have known. Wasn't the best experience.

Love this place, friendly staff and great food! Corned beef hash, eggs and potatoes, or just the LARGE serving of potatoes. Yum!

Quick service, good price, good portion size, decent food, nothing to complain about. The 4 year old liked it too.

The omelet I had tasted like it came from a gas station mivrowave. It was awful if it wasn't for the Gilroy garlic hot sauce we had. The service was pretty bad too as I only got one refill of coffee my entire meal and it was $3. $3 for a cup of coffee at a bad breakfast place? I... More

Have been going here for years. Friendly service, homey little place, extensive breakfast menu. Delicious French Roast coffee. Typical breakfast is $8.95 or so. But good, and large portions.

This is a converted house. It's charming, to be sure, but makes moving around a little interesting. Food was your standard cafe affair, was good, but not great.

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 stack of Ollalieberry pancakes since... 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.
