I saw this on an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and had to check it out. So glad I did! We met the owner who was very lovely and had a wonderful meal. I was happy with EVERYTHING and was able to support a woman-owned, locally sourced, organic cafe.

The Wild Plum has never disappointed. I always make it a point to schedule a breakfast at this tucked away little place every time I'm in the coastal area of Monterey. The café is situated on a little side street. It is small, but there is outdoor seating available. The fresh squeezed orange juice is amazing, and pairs well with... More

This little cafe and bakery was about a block from our hotel and so we just stumbled upon it. What a find it was ..... It was lunch time so I ordered the Roasted turkey sandwich - it was superb - maybe the best sandwich I've ever had.... My daughter loved the chicken caesar salad too. We got their peach... More

Chef Pam and her staff source local ingredients to create delicious breakfast options. While their standby breakfast staples are tasty, it is their in-season use of local products that keeps me coming back. Multiple stops were required to enjoy both the berry turn over as well as the roasted apricot pancakes.

If i go somewhere i like it clean and nice a not sticky table a place where you can pay without sticky dirty empty counter. It's not for sensitive souls. The food itself is average to my taste The service was friendly.

When we visit Monterey, we go out of our way to visit this wonderful cafe for breakfast! Our most recent visit did not disappoint! If you are in a hurry, there are fabulous items in the counter... muffins, turnovers and many more goodies! We enjoyed an omelet and a scramble in our most recent visit; YUM! Served with the house...

They do their own baking. The chorizo omelette was great, any my neighbor's waffles look awesome with fresh fruit.

The Wild Plum exceeded our expectations. Our waitress was pleasant & friendly. It is a small bakery away from the busy warf. We sat outside with out pups and enjoyed the atmosphere. It was great that it was such a beautiful day because our food took a little bit longer than we would have liked but it was soooo worth... More

Was here for lunch during our trip to Monterey last week. Food - Amazing place to be for great food. We absolutely loved the food. They have big portions and the biggest plus - it is organic, which is something we care about a lot. We did a take out and ordered Garden Veggie Burgers, Mediterranean Tacos, House Quesadilla, Fajita... More
