Good food, breakfast fare, nothing extraordinary but service good, no surprises. It's open early and convenient if you're traveling, can walk there from the hotel (about twenty minutes, you can burn off one egg), Clean.

This is small cafe frequented by locals. The breakfast was reasonably priced and well prepared. Portions were more than adequate. I would recommend this cafe for breakfast. They had a number of signs indicating they had won awards for their clam chowder so I imagine it might be OK for lunch as well.

Very solid breakfast place in a convenient location. Staff was friendly and food was good. Easy to see why it gets crowded.

I ate breakfast here the last two days. Sat on the patio. Service was very friendly and attentive. Food was good. Prices were good. This is going to be a go to stop for me when in Pismo or on the 101.

My wife and I had breakfast on a Monday. Service was good due to a weekday setting. While the pancakes were tasty and large, the rest of the meal was nothing special. Not bad, just average.

The place is small but the food is awesome. The breakfasts are so good, large portions and the presentation of the food really surprised... More
