Good coffee and pastries, also light lunch options. Nice outdoor area to enjoy on good weather days. Can get really busy and crowded depending on time of day, with limited indoor seating.

As a local I've been there a few times..always good coffee...good pastries...and we always get our birthday cakes there. Carrot cakes for over 30 years... great on a sunny day to sit in the large courtyard that is dog friendly.

Best pastries and cookies around. Is a top notch bakery you have to visit. This is a hidden secret and I believe one of the best on the Peninsula.

We stopped in around 11:30 a.m. They were very busy. Our group all ordered breakfast sandwiches. The food was excellent. Staff in general were helpful and almost immediately addressed our requests. Our cashier was especially helpful. The food was very good. Will definitely eat there again when in Santa Cruz.

I visited with my 3 children, my sister and her 2 children and our grandmother. There is something for everyone to love here. We were a little worried about where we were going to sit since it is pretty small but the outdoor seating was great for large groups! Prices are reasonable and the everything we ordered was excellent!

We ordered two banana cream pies for a birthday gathering. When we picked the pies up I was amazed by how big they were and how many bananas there were on top. When it came time to indulge the fun contained as the pies were wonderfully creamy and the crust was amazing, almost a shortbread.

Service here was friendly and efficient so the lines at each counter moved quickly. We loved the veggie benny - the egg done just as my husband requested, and the vegetarian frittata, so savory I had to check there was no meat in it. The atmosphere was inviting, with lots of bustle and conversation. We also took tubs of three... More

There are burritos, baked goods, eggs, almost anything you want. The place bustles with hungry patrons, most of whom are locals. You can sit inside or out as you choose. The place has a funky feel and the food was good 25 years ago and it is good today. Order at the counter and the staff will bring it to... More

So I gave this place a try after a friend recommended it. Waited in line for ages during lunch rush on Father's Day. The staff was friendly, the food was very good, but I'm not sure why everyone raves about the place. Its really good. Is it the best thing ever? Sensational? A bargain beyond belief? No, it isn't.
