It takes perseverance to find, but take the time to find it. The food is very good and the "locals" know it as the room is always full. The menu has very interesting choices. I had what was called the Carmel Omelette with big pieces of bacon and lots of cheese and one of the most delicious biscuits I've ever... More

My friend and I were visiting this area for a girls retreat and stopped here on our way out of town. This place was quite surprising! The service was very good and the food was better. I just LOVED the cinnamon french toast with bacon! The portions were HUGE and our waitress was such a sweetheart. The service was fast... More

We decided to eat lunch here after reading Trip advisor reviews. Guy Fieri mention this restaurant on his travel show. My husband ordered the biscuit and gravy as advertised by Guy, It wasn't good. The chili is awesome. But if you're looking for a great sandwich definitely order the California dip!

We have enjoyed several breakfasts here over the years, and just yesterday we had a nice brunch here. Food was very fresh and nicely presented and prepared. I had a vegetarian eggs Benedict and my husband enjoyed the corned beef hash. Coffee is great!

The best eggs Benedict I have had in a long time. I had regular and my wife crab, both were cooked to perfection. My daughter had pancakes. Awesome. Oh and the mimosas were good too. Service was fast and friendly. Worth another visit.

This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel. We tried it the first morning and came back every morning after. The absolute best "from scratch" corned beef hash! This dish will change the way you think about hash. No mushy stuff in a can, this dish has large tasty chunks of real corned beef with potatoes and it's just... More

We came here due to the High Ratings on Trip Advisor and another site. The photo of the restaurant chef with Guy Gieri AND Robert Irvine sealed the deal for me as a “must eat” place. First, we could not find the restaurant – it is a lower level restaurant accessible from stairs in one area. Once we got there,... More

Loved this spot! Well prepared breakfast, great coffee, lots of locals hanging. Prompt wait staff and un-rushed atmosphere.

We stumbled onto this place and ended up going for breakfast. Plenty of choices with more than enough food. French toast was excellent as was everything else our family ordered. Very reasonably priced and low key but busy.

From Scratch is true to its name and delivers delicious breakfast! We sat outside on the lovely patio, with heaters to keep us warm on a somewhat-chilly but sunny day. I had a breakfast skillet with red potatoes and peppers & mushrooms, but the real stars were homemade (from scratch, get it?) vegetarian sausage and pork sausage patties. The pork... More

Located in the LOWER level of the Barnyard Shopping Village - below Bay Bikes. The back stairs face Highway One. Since 1977, this charming, family owned restaurant has been serving breakfast and lunch made from the freshest of ingredients lovingly prepared by an expert chef. From Eggs Benedict to made-to-order omelettes to the best Huevos Rancheros around, it's impossible to beat their award-winning breakfasts. The restaurant is available for private parties in the evening. Enjoy your meal inside next to the fireplace or outside on remodeled patio. Pet friendly! We hope to see you soon.
