Lovely breakfast, we had pancakes and bacon which were both cooked well. Ended up going back several Days running as was one of our favourite breakfast places. On the first day we went to the Lighthouse cafe and it wasn't good, too loud and pancakes very stodgy. Service also good and we found friendly at Victorian.

We had breakfast here, basically because the place we wanted to go was closed. The food was good, the service was good, but nothing special, maybe because it was just eggs and potatoes. Nothing to complain about, just not spectacular.

Our first meal of this visit to Pacific Grove, and we loved it. We both had Crab Cakes Benedict - a first for us, and what an incredible dish. Two nice-sized crispy crab cakes (very high crab - to breading ratio!) on top of excellent English muffins topped with softly poached eggs and a delicious hollandaise sauce, My husband ordered...

Had dinner here one evening last week. We were seated promptly and served by a very friendly lady. I had the grilled Alaskan salmon which was delicious. I could not fault this place in any way- other than the decor is a bit dated and drab - but that doesn't affect the food quality or service. Highly recommended for a... More

Excellent food! Ordered a veggie omelet and got fries and a salad with it. The burger was also very good. Great period location to relax and enjoy.

As we arrived in Pacific Grove we were told to go eat at this restaurant. What a find. From the service to the prices and of course a view of the town was great.

We visited Monterey for the second year in a row, and we knew we wanted to come here for breakfast at least once. Friendly service and great food, with nice big windows looking over the town with a peek at the water between buildings.

I had the asparagus stuffed ravioli which was delicious. My wife's ceasar salad was equally well prepared with generous amounts of cheese and chicken. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Great atmosphere fits the little town. I love the old black and white photos showing what the street corner used to look like. Make sure you dine here at... More

Meatball Sandwich and BLTs were very good and atmosphere is charming. Wait staff not as charming as the family history and emphasis would imply.
