Waitress was super nice and took our special kid breakfast requests without blinking an eye. Biscuits are yummy and coffee is strong.

Mother Hubbard's is a very welcoming restaurant, with fantastic service & great food. We especially want to thank Walter and Jacob for their excellent customer service. They anticipated our needs almost before we did. They both made great recommendations and the Eggs Benedict special was...super yummy, as was their chicken fried steak & gravy breakfast! I'd just like to tell the owners to buck up and add another phone line, or invest in something like Square technology so you can run credit cards table side. You can't run a restaurant with one phone line if that's the only line available for answering customer calls & processing credit card transactions. It is 2021 after all!More

This is a great place for a great breakfast. I think that their chicken fried steak is the best you will have in Southern California. Their scrambles are great as well.

We ate here for lunch. We were seated quickly and asked for our drink order and given a menu. My wife had the Santa Barbara Chicken sandwich and I ordered the Santa Fe Chicken sandwich. We opted for the potato salad for our side dish....Both sandwiches were cooked well with large breast on the sandwich. The potato salad was homemade with bits of bacon and celery. The potato salad was very good. What we did not realize when we went there it was almost closing time but it was not a problem as they told us to take our time eating and enjoy our meals. Service was top notch and the food was worth the price. Will stop again for lunch when we are in the area.More

When in Buellton, stop on in. Great places, food is wonderful, the people even better. Right across from Pea Soup, close to all, right off the freeway so it is easy to find. No reason to stop at a chain when this is fresh, fun...and friendlyMore

We've got outside seating where your welcome to have your pet, of course that's assuming it's not something along the lines of a Siberian Tiger, though that would be pretty cool Jon
