This is our favorite breakfast and lunch spot in all of California. The staff is great, from the greeters and waitresses to the cooks, who you never see but REALLY can appreciate. The menu is online, so you can get an idea of the wide variety of choices. They also have specials daily and different types of muffins everyday. My... More

Heard so many good things about this place, so I was finally able to try it. Small restaurant, very crowded and noisy. Felt like I was in a sardine can and felt very rushed to eat. If you are looking for a nice, causal breakfast place, this is not for you. Staff friendly, food average, nothing that is outstanding to... More

We wanted to try something other than Gayle's breakfast. SS is a find. Good fresh food and very reasonably priced. Perfectly sized portions. Substituting fruit for spuds was not a problem. Friendly service. Only drawbacks: closed on Sunday, no reservations, noisy when crowded -- but it's crowded for a reason!

Small restaurant so go early but nothing fancy. Food is good and down home. The only suggestion I may have is that if you want "crispy" bacon, make sure you tell them that doesn't mean "burnt". Good buttermilk pancakes. If noise bothers you, I would probably go somewhere else.

Excellent food. Service was great. The one thing we do not like is buying drinks with no refills. Buy each one unless you get Coffee or Water. Will not be back at all.

Was visiting friends in Monterey and was heading back to the airport, when we stopped in for a quick lunch on a whim. We were kinda aimless trying to find a place, when we just decided on this place. I will say before I write more, this was some of the best food I have had in my life. The... More

Have been going for a few years. Wish I had known much earlier! First thing today,I signed in at the front door for last hour lunch. Then i waited outside and read a Good Times newspaper. The hostess called my name, and even came out to the front benches to wake me. I ALWAYS look at the Specials boards. The... More

Popular place for breakfast, you'll probably have a short-to-medium wait so get there early. Good food with ever-changing specials, have had breakfast there numerous times and always left satisfied. Good portion size, not for those who are counting calories or trying to lower cholesterol. That said, the constant lines out the door give a local endorsement, if you are in... More

This is a comfortable restaurant in every way. The staff is great from the owner Linda, to the cooks and wait staff. The menu has something for everyone. Try a muffin, instead of toast. They are all delicious and they make many different kinds. I admit, I have tried them all. Muffin Love! My husband's favorite is the Tiajuana Taxi,... More

You want the best breakfast anywhere in the Santa Cruz area? Just maybe anywhere at all? Look no farther than Silver Spur. This is a heritage site and "the" place to go when a best-of-the-pack breakfast is something you crave! Linda has been overseeing quality food and quality service for a long time, and the number of rabidly loyal patrons... More
