I was very disappointed. I ordered the Veggie Scramble and it was flavorless. It tasted like frozen vegetables were poured out of a bag into a skillet then 1 egg was stirred in. The potatoes that were served on the side were not cut small enough and therefore were undercooked. My husband ordered the Hoppy's Burrito which also contained undercooked... More

Loved the breakfast here! Ordered the blueberry pancakes and they were delicious! Kids menu minimal, but has the basics (pancakes, eggs, etc).

For quality, value and service, you can't beat the Silver Spur. This restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch and is one of the Best breakfast restaurants in the Santa Cruz area....it's always busy, and on Saturday, prepare to wait. They have a self-service coffee bar to make your wait more pleasant. Their staff is always happy, pleasant and helpful.... More

This is the best breakfast in Santa Cruz, along with the red Apple in Aptos. The portions are more than generous, you can make free substitutions (a wonderful, huge blueberry pancake instead of toast; actually fresh, ripe fruit instead of potatoes). You can even get half eggs, half good tofu for no extra charge. They make their own delicious salsa... More

We were told this place has the best pancakes in town and that this was an excellent place to go. There were lots of people there ~ but the food didn't look good going by and our opinion wasn't changed when we had our breakfast (pancakes and sausage, and a waffle). Prices didn't reflect quality of food - much more... More

This is one of our favorite places for breakfast or lunch. Great food, great staff, huge selection of food with quality ingredients. There's a reason why there is always a wait to get in.

My friends and I stopped in at the Silver Spur on the recommendation of a friend while on a recent road trip along the California Coast. We were very glad for the recommendation--it's not necessarily the kind of place that we would normally have stopped in at, but it was definitely a treat! We were there for a late lunch... More

Great personal service with an adventurous menu. Breakfast omelettes made with local ingredients, baked goods "home made"' local sausage and fresh fruit. The only thing missing was dark roast coffee and an espresso machine. Really good breakfast fare!

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
