The waitresses are the key

Enjoyed a quick breakfast here before visiting Channel Islands National Park. The waitresses really made the visit the best. Food was good, portions large, but service definitely sets it apart.

We stayed at country inn right by this place and one of the mornings we just walked over and were very pleased with the experience. Super local, super diner type of place and the food was great. The spicy sausage was really nice (Louisiana sausage I wanna say?)

This restaurant, attached to the Vagabond motel, has been there as long as I can remember. It's an excellent place for breakfast with competitive pricing. Locals love it, too...

The staff is very attentive, the food never disappoints and although we are only able to visit once a year, we are always welcomed like old friends.
