I was so eager to have my husband try this restaurant. I had been there several times on my last visit to Hermosa Beach and had outstanding food if not outstanding service. The waitress seems to be almost resentful of non regulars. She sat at the table with her regular customers when I was there last time but at least the food was good. She greets regular customers in a warm friendly manner but walk by with blinders on as if she would rather not deal with you. The food had been great on the last visit too (I went there four times in five days last visit). But this time as I was so happy to share this place with my husband for the first time, it was awful. My scrambled eggs were underdone, gelatinous and cold, while the home fries were burnt black on the outside and still raw in the middle. My husband ordered the huevos rancheros, the rice and the beans were both cold. He had ordered bacon on the side which didn't come until after we had both finished. It was dangling off the plate and was barely cooked. They did take it off the check but only after we asked them to do so. We didn't get the right check at first and we were charged for our refills of coffee. The woman who worked the front door was nice and welcoming but our waitress whom I had a couple of times last year is the polar opposite (pun intended.) When she brought the bacon over she said "I can't help what the kitchen does" and as a former waitress (15 years) I get that but not her rudeness when we asked questions about the menu or asked for a glass of water. She had plenty of time to sit down at several tables and visit but not enough to answer any questions. I have to say the muffins that they are famous for are still good.
