I looked at some reviews real quick about this place and they were a lot of good stuff. I was not disappointed. The food here is AMAZING! Love it. And it is not the tradition breakfast places (that I am used to) that are super greasy and fattening. Where do you go to a place that they serve a nice... More

The best breakfast we have had on many of our recent travels. The Spinach and Goat Cheese Omelet and the Smoked Ham and Cheese Omelet were our favorites. The breakfast potatoes and fresh salad perfectly complimented the egg dishes. Coffee was excellent. Can't wait to go back on our next trip.

Great food for Breakfast and lunch. Order at the counter and you have a choice of nice small tables on the Plaza Sidewalk or a great garden area outside during the warmer months. Live music pops in and out

The Cafe offers a beautiful historic garden setting and fine food and wine and coffee and chai drinks. The food is superbly California unique. My only compliment is that the owner put every server in a black t-shirt uniform instead of the diversity the servers displayed in their choice of clothing 3 years ago. It's also right off the Plaza.

This is a cafe style place wherein you order your food at a counter and someone brings it to you. The food is good, the seating is comfortable and it is very casual.

The sunflower is a popular choice for breakfast. The waffles they do taste good and you can get lots of different toppings. The bacon waffle was good as it was inside the actual waffle but it might have be better if it had been on top. Still nice though.

This incredibly unique cafe is right on the plaza. If you like people watching - sit in front. If you like sitting in a beautiful garden - sit in back. Last week for breakfast I had hot tea and a bowl of yogurt with berries and homemade granola. It was heavenly. My favorite dish here is the goat cheese stuffed... More

Fast paced, good food, not great. Noisy, and hard to find tables. Sandy salad. Will go again if in area.

We came here for breakfast and it was delicious. I had the spinach, goat cheese, bacon omelet and it was amazing. The monster mimosa was delicious too! It's a great little people watching spot!
