Wonderful burgers!

Even though it was a busy weekend morning, we were seated promptly and service was great. Our food was prepared to our instructions in a very short period of time.

This is a popular eatery in Seal Beach and has been here many years. I ate here a few times but found the food to be so-so. Not bad but not particularly good either. The prices were high given the average quality but were matched by large portion sizes. Essentially, I was paying more for higher quantity and not deliciousness,... More

Awesome service and food. Popeye omelette was scrumptious and coffee was fantastic. Definitely worth the visit. It's also close enough to walk to or from beach and Main St.

We had breakfast here on a Sunday morning and had no problem getting a table outside on the patio. The menu is very diverse and offers healthy options such as brown rice instead of potatoes and turkey hash rather than hash made with a fattier meat. The lunch menu also looked good so we will be going back for lunch... More

The food is delicious both for breakfast and lunch and the service is always warm and friendly. I am sorry they do not serve dinner anymore because that was great too. The soups are good and I love the Good Earth sandwich-only place I ever eat something vegetarian! You can't go wrong with breakfast Mornings are always busy.

The menu is creative and well-executed. The restaurant is spotless and the staff on-point. Every meal I've had had been correctly prepared, the right temperature and served with courtesy. It's a favorite of every generation in our family. On the week-ends, be prepared to wait in line, all the local know what a great spot this is!

Breakfast and lunches are excellent. Great menu to select from, good quality food and a beach-town feel. Conveniently located right on Pacific Coast Highway in Seal Beach, close to Main Street. I personally enjoy the eggs benedict for breakfast and the Cluben for lunch.
