Fast service, great shuffle omelettes. Overall a great quick breakfast. On the weekends though be prepared to wait. This place isn't a secret.

The restaurant was very crowded and the table is small for the 5 of us. Breakfast was ok and so was the service, nothing outstanding. They only take cash which is annoying.

That's about sums it up besides the long wait times! Which store in America does not take credit cards? And then they have an ATM inside - no no no - am not paying all those credit card fees! Good food though especially the Copenhagen pancakes!

Very popular breakfast place and for good reason. Big portions, decent quality. Get there early and prepare to stand in line. I hear their cinnamon rolls are wonderful but have not tried them. People bring their dogs and sit outside which is nice.

I needn't say more than the title. This is really good. The place is always busy uptown or downtown. They only take cash! My parents want to go every time they visit from out of town. It's good weekend breakfast time.

Fun restaurant, quick service. My eggs Benedict was great my husband said his Omlette was a bit bland. Sat outside on a sunny Saturday morning.

We've been wanting to dine at Los Gatos Cafe, but always saw a line out waiting to be seated. Today we decided to give it a try and to our surprise the wait was less than 10 minutes. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Food is also cooked in a timely matter, as soon as we were seated our drink... More
