Went here 2 times in 2 days for breakfast and had a completely different experience both times. 1st visit was great, great food, great service. 2nd visit, have to be fair and say this was on Fathers Day, not so great service, food was not as good as the day before. The waitress that we started with was friendly and... More

If you're looking for place that hits all the comfort food buttons, this is the place to be! Their waffles are excellent, they make their own corned beef hash and their poached eggs on the benedicts are perfect. The staff is friendly and accommodated all our special requests. Ate there for breakfast every day we were in Santa Maria, CA!... More

You can get lunch at breakfast which is great for my family who doesnt like breakfast foods. The service is always good and they have alot of variety in the menu to accomodate all types of personal tastes.

We chose the "traditional" breakfast -- eggs, bacon and hash browns. Everything was so good: bacon was crispy as were the has browns. The breakfast comes with bagel, biscuit, toast or housemade muffin. I chose the blueberry muffin and it was delicious! My companion chose what was billed as the buttermilk biscuit and was a bit disappointed as she said... More

There was a big breakfast menu and the wait staff was extremely attentive, constantly circulating with the coffee pot. I had eggs and my husband had pancakes and there was almost too much food. It was very conveniently located, across the street from the Santa Maria Inn. I would not hesitate to return to this diner.

We eat here at least once when we are in Santa Maria. The food and service were still good, but I think they must have sold the restaurant. Still good place to eat and I would recommend it. Usually when we go it's for the annual Cruisin' Nationals for Memorial Day Weekend. The staff has dressed in 50's style to... More
