There are two locations and we go to both often for breakfast or brunch and both places are like a movie-set versions of a comfy neighborhood hotspot where the vibes are cool and the coffee, hot. The food is so mouth-watering good and miraculously consistent. Ah, don't forget the omelettes --fluffy and fabulous.

We live in the area and it is our favorite restaurant. We bring all our family and friends for the best food and best hospitality of anywhere we've been and we have been to almost every country in the world! Certainly every continent. Thank you Los Gatos Cafe!

This is a cool vibe kind of place with a local feel. No frufru but just good solid food. I was visiting on a work project and seek these kind of above the level of greasy spoons but not the ultra trendy spot where you have to wait in line to get the so and so waffles. Not my thing.... More

This cafe opens at 6am, so great if suffering from jet-lag. Absolutely huge portions of good food, cooked however you want, to set you up for a busy day. Staff were super friendly and explained any dishes we queried. Only in Los Gatos for 2 mornings but ate here both times.

This is a really good breakfast and lunch restaurant. They specialize in all different kinds of eggs benedict and have also a lot of really good scrambles. Their home fries are delicious! My favorite is the Seafood Benedict. They also have enormous cinnamon buns. There's frequently a line here, so be prepared to wait.

This has to be one of the best cafe breakfast's I have ever had. It was a Saturday morning but the three of us were seated quickly. The food was really good and plenty of it. I enjoyed the Eggs Benedict with muffins that had to be homemade and superb Hollandaise. One of my guests had a huge portion of... More

Really friendly staff and a great breakfast. The cinnamon roll is delicious but not on the menu so you need to ask for it. You have to wait a bit at the weekends but the line goes down pretty quickly and it's worth the wait. Great for kids.
