The food here is so good. Freshly made country cooking. They do not serve alcohol at this establishment so no beer with breakfast.

I’ve always liked the staff and food at this place. It’s a hole-in-the-wall kind of local place for breakfast or lunch. They have a nice outdoor eating area, friendly demeanor and fair prices. It is the opposite of a chain restaurant in all the best...ways. If you want a peak at old classic Nipomo, this is probably the best place to visit as well.More

Came in on recommendation and boy, were they right. It was amazing. Chris and Jeanna as hosts were the best. The building was funky. And the food well, what can I say apart from fantastic, I’d go again that’s for sure. X

Everything I have tried at the Mayor's Place is spot on. Generous portions, great service, locals hanging out with their friends. Their baked in house Sourdough bread is fantastic!! Don't let the outside eclectic appearance scare you, it's done in fun. Go on in and...become a member of the family and enjoy a great meal.More

Great people, great breakfast spot. A real down Home family run spot for locals. We really enjoyed everything we had and will have to come back for their BBQ. Delicious muffins, real hash browns, could’ve tried everything. We’ll be back for sure

We pre ordered delicious freshly made muffins and the were ready to be served when we arrived. This is a great local...Nipomo breakfast and lunch place that has a lovely patio for warm mornings and afternoons. they have new sun shades to keep you cool and are ver accommodation to whatever needs you have.More

Combine the local small town feel, with the most friendly service, and yummy, cozy breakfast food, makes for the perfect place! So so happy we found this sweet little place, definitely give it a try.
