“Flavor? What's that?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Was a student at Poly, and lived in the area for a few years, but this was the first time eating at Fat Cats. Now I know why. Both hubs and I had fish tacos, daughter had fish & chips. The fish had absolutely no flavor whatsoever. I guess I don't expect world class cuisine, but I expected the fish to taste like something. We won't be back.

“Very casual”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

Small, but really friendly place. Food was good and portions were large. Efficient service. If you try at a peak hour you may have to wait. It's worth it though. Wide variety of food. Great location on north end of Avila near a walkable pier. Parking is easy.

“Yucky Hash”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

We went here on a week day in the off season. The place was empty. There was a special on hash and eggs and the waitress said it was homemade and good. Very gross. The corn beef was so fatty I could not eat it. What a waste. It was $13.50 and I had to leave most of it because it was so fatty. My husband ordered some of the sausage gravy on the side and was told it was homemade as well. It WAS NOT homemade. Overall this breakfast was a disappointment. I'm sure this place gets plenty of business by duping its customers. Maybe I should have just ordered pancakes.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We ate breakfast here one morning and were very satisfied. We had the stuffed French toast and it was delicious. Great coffee and very friendly staff.

“No Wonder These Cats are Fat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

If you were a cat and lived near this restaurant, you'd be fat, too! We tried the fish tacos, and they were tasty and the portions were generous. Enough for two meals. Very friendly staff. Note: This restaurant is located near the San Luis Pier at the far end of Avila. It's not where the most restaurants are. It is worth the few extra minutes of driving for the food and the view.
