Love breakfast at the Cafe!

I am an Eggs Benedict fan... They have one of the best Bennies in the area. I highly recommend it. The Hollandaise is divine.

Los Gatos cafe is a very popular breakfast place in Los Gatos. No reservations, only walkins, and every one in the party has to be present to be seated. Cash Only, no credit cards. People line up all weekend mornings with long waits. Best time to go is before 8am. Breakfast and lunch only. No dinners. All are good, never... More

Great selection of egg dishes and pancakes. The cinnamon bun is giant but I don't like the cinnamon maple butter I prefer it with butter on th side. No reservations so there can be a long wait on weekends.

I guess if you are in neighborhood it is ok. And this is more of a neighborhood spit. But def not worth a drive. Portions are big. They have a huge variety of eggs Benedict but again nothing special. Pastries are also average. They do not take credit cards.

Los Gatos Cafe was recommended to me so while we were in the area visiting I decided to check the place out. I have to admit, when we drove up, it was not what I expected, but since there were people waiting out in front we decided to give it a try. It is definitely a rustic place, but don't... More

A very busy cafe and being a wet Saturday morning we didn't have too much of a wait for a table outside with the two Labradors. Service was excellent from the time we arrived to the time we left. All staff very friendly and nothing was a problem. Regular checks of the table, coffee and water top ups. A good... More

We go here frequently because it's always excellent- the only drawback is the wait. But it's never too long and it's always worth it.

Awesome breakfast place for those who are hungry and want tasty omelettes, pancakes, waffles etc. Be ready for a large meal, or share a plate.

Stopped here in the morning on our way down to Monterey. So glad that we did. Great breakfast, quick and friendly service. My wife had the French Pancakes and I had a Veggie Omelette. Both were excellent and more than enough food to get us through the morning. Best place for breakfast or lunch in Los Gatos. Warning: it gets... More

Down-home cooking, generous portions, good prices for Los Gatos. But busy, busy, busy. Close seating. Good, flavorful food. Usually easy parking. Waitresses are pros. Cinnamon rolls were a specialty. On the east side of Hwy 17 so away from downtown. Not the right spot for a relaxing cup of coffee where you read the paper for an hour. This place... More
