This place has the BEST pancakes!!

Cowboys Corner is a great place to stop by for breakfast and lunch! My family eats here often and it doesn't matter what you order, everything is good! I would have to say the pancakes and homemade biscuit with sausage gray are a must have! It's always busy, but I can't recall having to wait too... read more

This is one of Watsonville's gems, ever since it opened, and one of those places where they know you by name after a short while (the owners are very friendly!). The only thing on the menu that has every disappointed me was the soup (bland), which I have heard from others as well, but besides that, everything is very, very... More

The Cowboy never disappoints. Service is friendly and swift, prices are reasonable, and best of all, the food is yummy! If you show up twice, the staff knows who you are and what you like. They have a variety of menu items, from lots of meat for my husband, combos for my son and items with healthy choices for me... More

Stopped by here at the recommendation of a local nurse that we were seeing. When asked where to go for breakfast or lunch she without hesitation said "Cowboys Corner Cafe". She was right! Great traditional breakfast menu with homemade biscuits that were just like home, only better. You can get the biscuit with gravy if you like but I had... More

Dropped in for lunch with the kids. Great food all round (omelette, pancakes etc). Nice service and a nice price. Would certainly go again.

We went in on a weekday morning, place was 1/4 filled. Staff was friendly and service was good. They knew and welcomed a lot of the people that came in. We had one of the daily specials- scramble. It was really good, and a lot of it. Had to box up the extra to go. They didn't have a "Mocha"... More

We were hungry for fish but the Fish House was closed so we ended up here. What a delicious surprise! I had ordered fried steak and eggs, but they brought me skirt steak and eggs, an honest mistake but it was more expensive. I really didn't care though, since it was so delicious, and even came with a biscuit and... More
