The best breakfast place in town!! I love the easy rider with eggs and flour tortillas. The potatoes are grilled to perfection making this breakfast a complete winner.

This is a great place for local cuisine... Not fancy, but friendly, great value, and just plain good food with a mix of flavor and ingredients that represents the culture of this coastal farm town.

Paula and Jose are gracious hosts. They take quality ingredients and make your meal just like your grandma would make it. Big portions. Very clean restaurant.

Don't let the location fool you. Yes there is a weird budget hotel behind it, but you should come here if you like a local diner serving big plates at a price of very tasty food. Its gets busy early on weekends and stays packed til after lunch.

Great for breakfast, but you may have to wait for a table. This place gets busy. Portions are nice, coffee is good, service is fast once you're seated, and the price is reasonable. No complaints.

Fried potatoes are something that are really important and theirs are excellent. The bacon is perfectly cooked and thick enough. They don't scrimp on the coffee either. Excellent omelets... More

And the service was wonderful, even though it was very crowded. I travel with my service dog, which usually unglues restaurant people who don't understand. The... More

It felt like good home cooking. Large portions and friendly staff. I had the biscuits and gravy and the portion was large with homemade biscuits.
