Excellent service and variety of food was excellent with large portions which enabled us to share among our 8 family members. Would definitely eat here again when in town. Great!!

The Vagabond Coffee Shop is the place where my family meets for Sunday brunch when we are in town. There is a waitress who still works part time during the week who I have known since I was 11 years old, and I'm 68 now. One of the greeters was in my high school class and we know lots of... More

I love diners like this. It was right next to where we were staying at the Vagabond Inn. For dinner I had their fried chicken dinner, and it was delicious. We liked it so much we had breakfast there the next morning before taking the Channel Islands ferry. I wanted to try their famous Belgium waffle. The waitresses, though, were... More

Nice coffee shop close to the Best Western hotel. We met family here on our first night and it was nice not to have to drive any more to get a bite to eat.

Great menu, reasonable price, excellent customer service and nice family atmosphere! The waitress (older lady) was such a sweetheart. She catered to our needs.

Good coffee and a good variety of meals $. Good parking. Part of the Vagabond Motel. Try the Meat Loaf and mashed potatoes. Looks old timey. Great service, try sitting at the counter. Bring back the 60's & 70's.

For over 5 years now, the Vagabond has been one our "go to" places ( especially on Tues. for the Ham & Lima Bean Special of the day). Hard to beat for breakfast, too !! Prices are always good and the service like they really care. Jolene, the owner has been in business for 40 + years and knows how... More
