Wow, what colorful place!!! Food is average , but the atmosphere can't be beat. Best part is the bottomless champagne and mimosas for $3.99 !!!!! Food is big portions. Tip: share a dish.

There is a great energy here. Sometimes you want all that energy, sometimes you don't. The place is very crowded, with tables on the sidewalk and crammed everywhere inside. So when you have to wait for a table, especially on weekends, it's awkward even trying to find a place to stand. Also, crowded means that you will hear conversations from... More

How can you beat $3.95 bottomless champs? Loved the food, staff is friendly, worth the wait (dog friendly outdoor seating).

Service was fabulous. Distinctive pink palapa umbrellas and open air eating area. Decent people watching. The fruit bowl was the best part of our meal and I think that is just california at its finest. They may have a full bar a lot of tables were drinking with brunch. But the food was super plain. With so many interesting eateries... More

We went here two mornings in a row and LOVED it. High energy vibe, popular with the locals, and LOTS OF CHOICES FOR BREAKFAST. I tried the Country Benedict (there are several 'Benedict' selections) which was biscuits and gravy, sausage paddy, eggs and wonderful thick potato fries that were browned on at least one side. One of the most decadent... More

This place is fun. Sit near the sidewalk and enjoy the people arriving and walking to work. We stopped by twice for breakfast last week and will return everytime we pass through P.S. This breakfast and lunch spot has a full bar and is known for its $3.95 bottomless champagne (mimosa OJ is extra). They bring you your own bottle.... More

We dined here for breakfast on a Friday morning. There was no wait to be seated. Menu has lots of choices. One of us had the Eggs Benedict and I had the French toast. Both were good. Food was delivered hot. Coffee left a lot to be desired. Service was good but could have been a little more attentive. Our... More
