Saw a show on triple D on this spot, right before our trip, and was very happy with our visit. The reviews prior were mixed, but my family of three enjoyed each of our meals and bought bakery items for the next few days. Pleasant staff, only down side was the bathroom. It is in the building next door, which... More

I have been twice during the last two weeks and it has not disappointed. I have been a long time fan of this little restaurant. The food is delicious and care is taken with how it is presented. Also, Wild Plum has an amazing selection of delicious baked goods. You really can't go wrong if you want a casual breakfast... More

We had breakfast there and really enjoyed it. The potatoe skillet was good, my son enjoyed his whole grain waffles and my husband liked his pancakes too. They also have options for gluten and dairy free people. The waitress was so very nice, attentive and caring, it was a great way to start our day!

Between Trip Advisor and DDD, I'll never go hungry or have a bad meal. This is a quaint little cafe whose menu packs a wallop. The menu has a wide variety of fresh items. We had the Turkey Bacon Lettuce Avocado sandwich (TBLAT) and the Chicken Quesadilla. The portions satisfying, but not glutenous. We were able to finish our meals... More

I wasn't sure if we were going to try this place because of some of the mixed reviews. I am very glad we did. I honestly don't know why anyone would rate this place with one star. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service by Hannah was friendly and efficient. I had the frittata with sun dried tomatoes which was... More

Lots of fresh-made, organic breakfast choices. Delicious fluffy "steamed eggs," great local chicken apple sausage and house-made sour dough bread. Scones were almost too crumbly to easily eat. On one morning, the steel-cut oatmeal on the menu was not creamy in spite of adding cream. The next day the steel-cut oats turned out to be whole oats that were rather... More

Stayed for 4 nights just up the road from this cafe/restaurant and had breakfast here every morning. The service was second to none, the food was freshly cooked and delicious and the prices very reasonable. Would highly recommend.

We were in Monterey for 2 nights planning to try a couple of places for breakfast. This place was so good on the first day we returned the next day. It's an understated place that you would nearly miss, behind a Denny's restaurant. Friendly staff, served promptly. I had the veggie hash with eggs over easy day 1 and with... More

We had breakfast here on Monday as we were staying at a motel nearby. We ordered two lattes, an oatmeal with fresh berries and two egg, bacon and potato breakfast. The latte's were hot and yummy and the food one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in the US. We were looking forward to coming back on Tuesday, but... More

We enjoyed house granola and a special of pancakes, avocado and eggs- an amazing portion- and of course, house coffee. Perhaps too much sugar in the granola? Wide selection on menu, but not too much! Good location, easy parking.
