“Great breakfast spot”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

This was the best place for breakfast as evident by the crowds waiting for table on a Tuesday morning. I suggest getting there early to avoid the wait, all though you won't be able to avoid the crowds. The food was good, portions were generous, and service was good.

“Best Breakfast on Catalina”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

Old-fashioned diner decor, happy staff (the over-worked Ana never seemed rushed on a busy Labor-Day morning), and perfectly-prepared food are the top reasons to enjoy this special landmark restaurant in Avalon. The 20-minute wait was worth it, the food arrived hot and quickly, and the non-stop Kona coffee was rich. The Hollywood decor is a hoot, and the place is just plain fun. GO!

“Good food good service”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

Very popular place with kitschy decor. Huge selection. They advertise strawberry Crepes but these are just thin pancakes. So if you're looking for delicate lacy Crepes don't get these.

“Old Style Breakfast like home.”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

The food reminds you of home cooking, the prices are reasonable and they have a kids menu. There is always a wait to get in, so expect at least a 20 minute wait depending on what time you get there. The decor is old time Hollywood and looks cool. There are televisions that have different shows on, but they don't distract from breakfas if you don't want to watch. Great place for breakfast.

“Old fashioned coffee shop”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Food was good. price was right, not expensive compared to other restaurants in Avalon. Daniel our waiter did a great job, checked if we were OK even they were very busy. Reminds like an old fashioned dinner
