“Scotty's Is Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

This is one of the best family restaurants I have ever eaten in. The staff is mostly family, themselves, and the owner is an energetic woman who decorates the whole restaurant herself for each major holiday. There are hundreds of hearts, or snowflakes, or pumpkins, etc. in every inch of the ceiling. The food is totally comfort food, and large portions. Even ifyou aren't a regular like I am, the staff treat you like they have known you forever! i always have breakfast, and their are so many choices! Country-style cooking all home made. you'll love it!

“Excellent biscuit and gravy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We came across this restaurant on Yelp last year, we were in Whittier to visit Oceanic Arts. Excellent service, breakfast, coffee.
Came again this year, still great, looks like a locals place. So I bet they do not get many tourists there. But if your in the area make sure you check it out.

“Comfort beyond a doubt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Scotty's is always busy on weekend mornings when I am in Whittier. I finally decided to give it a try and found out why. The food is total comfort and the people make you feel like your part of a small town community. Servers are very friendly and proficient. The food is exceptional. I had a green chili egg dish that I would recommend, but all the pancakes and eggs being served to others looked amazing too.

“Tasty and very friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Pass by any weekend and this place has people waiting outside to get in! They have great comfort food with flavor. I've only been here for breakfast and they have quite a selection to please any appetite.

“The best comfort food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Well to start, get there early there is always a line but worth the wait. Best steak and egg breakfast. Biscuit and gravy. Are awesome. And if your around on a Thursday. They make the best homemade Albondigas soup (meatball soup) it reminds me of my moms.
