A Cozy Place for a Tasty Meal

Lunched here with a group of five. We absolutely loved the design and decor of this quaint breakfast and lunch spot. It was cozy and quiet enough to converse comfortably. The server was was the helpful and freindly husband of the cook/chef. The sandwiches were decious and ample in size. The... read more

Liz & Fred provide the best (& really only) great breakfast/brunch anywhere in the County! Liz's New Zealand Eggs Bennie is simply to die for with her homemade hollandaise & served on french toast rather than a boring English muffin! Her homemade pastries are mouth watering as is every single thing I've ever had on the menu! Small, intimate local... More

Best breakfast I had in California. Family owned and fresh food. I had the croissant with ham and eggs. Worth the visit.

My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and I had the turkey club. Both were excellent. We sat on the deck and enjoyed looking out on the comings and goings around the arch. Husband and wife are server and cook, so don't come if you are in a hurry. Only one order can be fixed at a time. If you... More

We have breakfasted here twice recently, and enjoyed our well prepared meals. I have ordered off the light eater's menu, and the amount is just right, and included a delicious cornmeal, blueberry pancake. My partner's egg and breakfast meat was cooked just to his liking. The wait is long, especially during the busy summer season, not as much on other... More

Rude, abrasive, unpleasant staff. Treated very rudely by ?owner. After a very long wait, he made it clear that this cafe is not child friendly. We were told that we must leave as soon as we finished eating! (We planned to, but to have an establishment tell you that before you are even seated is just RUDE!!). Friends with us... More

Tasty eats, especially the spinach omelette and the homemade jams. Very yummy. Limited service hours and seating options. Outside patio is lovely for early morning breakfast.

We had a pleasant lunch here, and sat on the patio. I had the veggie sandwich, and my husband had the panini. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We don't come to Twain Harte often, but this is the lunch spot of choice whenever we do.

We try to eat here several times when we are in Twain Harte. The french toast is delicious and so are the muffins! Latte's are the best!
