Great small portion menu

Had dinner here like they had "smaller portions" section on the menu ! Great pork chop and salad. Service was awesome and friendly ! Will be going back , sometimes less is more !

Old fashioned, American comfort food kind of place. I had the hot turkey sandwich which was good, but rather salty. Large portion. My husband had an ok patty melt with potato salad he couldn't eat. He didn't like it at all. The coffee was also very blah. Cookies were over-baked. Wouldn't recommend the place. Very cheap if you are on... More

We had breakfast at Vic's this past Sunday around 11:00 am. There was a line out the front and we thought we were in for a wait, but within 5 minutes we were seated in a booth. The hostess was super and our waitress was a true diner professional. She brought hot fresh coffee right away and when I asked... More

this was almost a four star but the coffee was just really marginal. Good portions, great staff, but the food was a touch greasy and uninspired. The best bet was the cinnamon French toast.

We went to eat at Vic's because of the high reviews on Yelp. The place was pretty crowded for a Sunday morning. We decided to sit at the counter to avoid having to wait 20 mins. The counter is very uncomfortable to sit at. Tight and low chairs. No place to put your purse was complained about by my gf.... More

We've been eating at Vic's Cafe on and off ever since we moved here in 1987. Have never been disappointed. Good prices and have always gotten plenty of food. Came on Saturday night for their Prime Rib Special. The meal included a dinner salad, Prime Rib, a baked potato and a vegetable. The vegetables (i.e., carrots) were cooked just right.... More

We arrived in Paso Robles just in time for lunch. After eating seafood almost everyday since arriving in California, we were looking for a something different. We were actually in the mood for some good old diner food, and when we stumbled upon Vic’s Cafe, we knew we had come to the right place. When you walk into Vic’s you... More

Pork chicken fried steak & eggs was brilliant. Super friendly service. Treated us like regulars. Definitely recommend this place for breakfast at the least.

Went here for breakfast on the basis of the Yelp rating. Have to say I was disappointed. Had the Paso Robles omelette which was very bland tasting. My partner had the bacon and eggs. .... no idea where they got the bacon from. ... looked like dried turkey bacon. The accompanying toast was made from the cheapest possible bread. Coffee... More

Vic's offers a very good "home town" feel with cheerful service and very good options for breakfast; highly recommended.
