“Plenty if locals so it must be good!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

We were driving and looking for a nice place for breakfast...unfortunately Santa Cruz is run down....but this place was a hit..,
It was so so busy.....worth the stopover....big portions...not a lot of vegetarian choices...would have like to seen some tofu scramble on the menu....maybe sweat potato fries...something a little out of the ordinary....good choice for an American breakfast ....clean and friendly..

“Yummy brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Stopped in for lunch/brunch - he had the California burger and I had the curry chicken salad salad. (chicken salad on top of a green salad). Both were delicious and excellent value. The balsamic vinegrette was really great. Our waiter was helpful with suggestions and really prompt. Thumbs up.

“Good food, but could do with a refurb.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

My family and I went here and we all thought the food was pretty good as was the service and value, but the venue wasn't great and definitely needed to be redecorated. So all in all we didn't have much to say about the place.

“Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The food was owrth the wait. The huevos Rancheros with Carnitas is a can't lose selection. Service was attentive. All four of us enjoyed eating outside even though the morning was cool.
