“Every morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Ate here almost every morning. Open at 630am, great for early morning coffee. Plenty of tables outside to enjoy your coffee and view of the bay. They didn't give us our vegetarian burrito the last day of our stay but the wrong item was pretty good. Already back in our room so we didn't take it back.

“Average at best and a bit overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

This is the only option for coffee in the morning when staying at the Monterey Plaza hotel, unless you want to walk 4 blocks to Starbucks. Coffee drinks were average and food options were as well...especially if you're a vegetarian.
