We had Sunday breakfast there and after about a 5-7 minute wait, we had a table in the small place. Out waitress (Cassandra, I think) was sweet and did a good job. Coffee was strong (good) and food delicious and fresh. I had crab cakes Benedict and crab was clearly fresh/tasty. Friend had buckwheat pancakes with fresh raspberries and was... More

My wife and I were very happy that we found this spot and would definitely be regulars if we lived near Pacific Grove. The family that owns the restaurant are generational and the history is written on the menu. Service is as good as the delicious food. Recommend the Eggs Benedict Yummy!

Eaten at the Victorian Corner for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, The place is beautiful and usually busy. Usually with my wife, but another couple is always fun. Regular breakfast, with everything mid priced compared to others in Pacific Grove.. Dinner was great, and low to mid priced for us. Good food, a great place to visit with on Lighthouse Ave.

Perfect American breakfast! We had huevos rancheros, hash browns, veggie omlette, bacon..all great! Better than the ones we had in S.F. or elsewhere in Cali. Perfect before starting The 17 Mile Drive.

The day that we had lunch at this restaurant happened to be the Saturday of the Pacific Grove triathlon, which we did not know would be going on. We arrived at 1:30 and it was not at all crowded but there were a few people eating there who appeared to have participated in the event, which I took as a... More

We were headed up the street on a Monday morning towards another restaurant and found this instead. What a great find! The building itself is beautiful and the inside decorations are mostly antique pieces. The business has been in the family since the mid 70's. Service was excellent and friendly. We had a mix at our table of everything from... More

Nice little place for breakfast. Friendly, good service. The French Toast comes with an orange sauce that is terrific. Good omelets and crisp bacon.

When we walked in and said "two for lunch," the hostess said "perfect!" Too many times on our recent trip, restaurant hosts would say, "let me see if what we have" or some such lukewarm comment, making us feel as though we were imposing. How nice it was to feel truly welcomed! The atmosphere was pleasant, the food (clam chowder,... More

Our server was great. My son wanted to tell her all about our vacation this far and she was happy to chat with him and share in his excitement. The food was good to, I got butternut squash ravioli and it was great. The dinning area is cute inside.
