Food was fresh and well cooked. Service was helpful and efficient. Menu is more sophisticated than other breakfast places BUT - there are limited options for people looking for smaller portions or low calorie items.

Scramblz always seems crowded. From my perspective it must be the location. Their menu options get smaller and their prices get higher. Service can be an issue. Almaden traffic can be a challenge, getting our of their parking lot requires a lot of nerve or going out the back way.

We get to Scrambl'z every few months because of the great location (Almaden near 85). It's always crowded, but the wait is not usually more than 15 minutes. Over the past few visits we have noticed the prices going up and the selection going down. My wife's cinnamon roll was doughy and our grits were like plaster. Service was OK,... More

To be honest we never had to wait more than 20mins for our family of four to be seated. Staff ALWAYS happy and environment is a smiley theme. Bright and sunny. Food is awesome! I can't recommend one thing because it's all really good. I have nothing negative to say about this place other than it can get crowded on... More

The wait staff were like hummingbirds, awesome to behold in action. The food was top notch. The sauces were fun to try. Thanks for the gluten free options.

I love taking the family here! The service is good, the food comes out fast, and the environment is family-friendly. Anyone with little kids knows being in a family friendly dining environment can make all the difference in the world. On top of all that, Scrambl'z delivers very good food in huge portions at a reasonable price. The angry potatoes... More

Went for breakfast and it was excellent. We had great service and the food was fresh and tasty. I especially enjoyed the fresh brewed tea leaves (no tea bags here) for my morning tea. My husband had a scramble and I had the eggs and turkey sausage. The side dish of fruit even included blackberries which was a treat.

This is a restaurant with funky character - lots of posters on the walls, etc. The food is excellent, and the choice of sides unique. I had the corn beef hash one day, which was excellent, and the side I chose was chocolate crepes, which were also excellent. Another day I had the scramble with a cinnamon roll and the... More

Want a high-energy place to eat breakfast or lunch that's fun for kids and has a varied menu? That's Scrambl'z. It's bright and cheerful inside. The servers are friendly and energetic. The focus is on breakfast food. The side dishes are often unusual and usually yummy (today's special side dish was coconut pancakes with white chocolate chips). Meals are $9... More
