My sister and I each ordered two Bloody Marys and we shared a bowl of yogurt/fresh fruit/granola. Drinks and food were delicious and reasonably priced. We dined at 9 am'ish.

A great spot for breakfast right on Highway 101, just a block or two off the beach. The service was good, breakfast was really good. We had the monte cristo french toast and pancakes for the kids.

This is a great restaurant with a wide range of options for a small place. We ate here twice Nd both time the food was great and the service was super. The staff works together and they work hard to get tables cleaned off and their waiting list cleared. The food was delicious! We will return on our next visit... More

Enough though you would think it's just another beach-y restaurant, you'll be surprised. It is a local favorite. Plenty of items on the menu and many are gluten-free. You might have to wait on Sunday for brunch but it's worth it.

This is our go to place for breakfast. Staff is friendly and efficient. Lemon Ricotta pancakes are always delicious. Wide assortment fits everyone's requirements for breakfast or lunch. Wish they were open for dinner.
