“AWESOME coffee... GREAT food and an art gallery tossed in for good measure!”
Our group (6 of us this year) always stays at the Skyview Motel (already reviewed on this site) in Los Alamos CA when we vist the central coast wine area. This past weekend twice we enoyed breakfast at Cafe Quackenbush located at 458 Bell Street, Los Alamos,CA just across Hwy 101 from the Skyview.
Jessica waited on us and was extremely helpful and pleasant. We are a group that loves our coffee. We asked for both regular milk and cream.. not only did they both come in nice sized pitchers... but Jessica also frothed them which meant our coffee didn't get cold when we added the cream! Nice touch Jessica.
While we waited for our meals we all took a chance to check out the surrounding art gallery. Lovely pieces from modern art to sculpture, folk art to jewelry. There was one piece in particular I wish my husband and I could have afforded for our new home! ...
Back to the food... I had the sausage breakfast burrito - filled w/sausage, egg and hashbrowns wrapped in a warm tortilla that appreared to have been heated over an open flame giving it a nice crunch... all the ingredients inside were fresh, the sausage was nicely grilled, the hashbrowns were crunchy. It was just about the best b'fast burrito I've had.... oh WAIT.. almost forget - the burrito is served with a side of salsa that is the perfect compliment.
We visited both Sat and Sun and both days the food was excellent. One friend had the chicken sausage omelette w/goat cheese. My husband had the ham and mushroom omelette. One of the two days a couple of us had Joe's Special Scramble - eggs, ground beef, spinach and cheese. It looked YUMMY. C.Q. opens at 8:00a.m. offering a different breakfast menu Tues - Fri. They are closed on Monday. In the afternoon they offer lunch until 2:00 and then cold sandwiches only, until 4:00. Please stop and check out Cafe Quackenbush. I believe you will leave full and satisfied.
