Bad luck, first visit?

Arrived 8:55 AM Sunday, waited 15 minutes to be seated, gave our order immediately. Food came quickly, our server was fantastic. Pancakes were ho-hum, thick bacon was slightly fatty, my meat omelette was brick like, overcooked in an omelette pan. Servers and tables were plentiful. The restaurant... read more

We were looking for a place that offered brunch options for two couples. Some wanted the breakfast the Scramblz is known for while others, in particular me, wanted lunch. We were able to satisfy every desire. I always seem to go for the items on the specials list, this time it was meatloaf, which, while not as good as the... More

Food was OK. Waffle lacked a crisp on the edge, and the Cajun hash had stale potatoes and belt-like spicy sausage. Had to get up and ask for coffee twice, even had to bring my bill up to the counter because I was tired of waiting. Manager saved the day, so I may return and give them a second chance.

Excellent food and hospitality. Much better the others and not overrated. Seen many breakfast cafés with long lines and assuming quality was good. This is the only one that is worth the wait.

We normally head to Bill's Cafe for breakfast out, but we decided to try this place instead. There is always a line outside on the weekends, so we thought it had to be good. We sat outside in a cute courtyard next to the pond which was perfect for my six year old. The tables were dirty but we overlooked... More

Choices galore! Eat inside or out. Eat inside a school bus or at a table. What sides to order with your eggs?--you have at least 20 choices. I chose two eggs scrambled and then had a blackberry turnover with frozen yogurt and a citrus salad. But I could have had oatmeal, or toast, or greek yogurt or mango salad or…..you... More

While visiting my niece and her daughters, we went to Scrambl'z for Saturday breakfast. It is a favorite of theirs, being from the midwest I had never been. The decor is cute and appeals to all ages although geared towards children. There is even a small yellow school bus that you can actually request to be seated in. The menu... More

Our family of nine went for breakfast at Scrambl'z on June 6, 2014. The food was delicious with huge portions and great selection of side dishes. We even had to share them. The side dish , Angry Potato, was fun and tasty. I am not particularly fond of chocolate, but my chocolate crepe was delicious. Our server was efficient, pleasant,... More

Good place with inside and outside seating. The menu has lots of good items but you have to look it over. Take your time. I found G-maws ham favorite as the daily meat and eggs favorite. It was really good and I had a ½ a pound of ham to take home. We also had pancakes which were delicious .... More

Cute restaurant near the freeway. Ordered the BLAT...bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato with my "side" the spinach strawberry salad. Both items drop dead delicious. The bread for the sandwiches is made on site. Food fresh....excellent service. Highly recommend.
