We are local and love coming here for breakfast or lunch. The food is always amazing! I love that we can sit outside with our dog and enjoy our meal before heading to the beach!

We had good service and good (and ample) food for lunch on their outdoor patio. Indoor seating if you want it; patio is covered, sunny and generally protected from the wind.

This was by far and away our favorite restaurant while in California for Spring Break. While the initial service wasn't speedy, the food more than made up for it. The staff was personable. And once our order was taken, the food was delivered pretty quickly....More

We've eaten here a few times now, and though there is usually a bit of a wait on weekends, it's worth it. The breakfasts (and bloody marys) are absolutely delicious! Great service, too :).

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.
