Description: Located in the LOWER level of the Barnyard Shopping Village - below Bay Bikes. The back stairs face Highway One. Since 1977, this charming, family owned restaurant has been serving breakfast and lunch made from the freshest of ingredients lovingly prepared by an expert chef. From Eggs Benedict to made-to-order omelettes to the best Huevos Rancheros around, it's impossible to beat their award-winning breakfasts. The restaurant is available for private parties in the evening. Enjoy your meal inside next to the fireplace or outside on remodeled patio. Pet friendly! We hope to see you soon.

“Large portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

After reading the reviews, we decided to eat lunch here. I had the tuna fish salad. It was a large portion of canned tuna, on top of lettuce, surrounded by several different kinds of chopped vegetables. I enjoyed it more then I expected and couldn't finish it, because I got too full. My husband had a custom omelette. He said it was dry, as if over cooked. His meal came with with potatoes and fruit, which he said were good. They have a nice outdoor patio, which I found to be relaxing. We had our dog with us and dogs are allowed here on the patio. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The restaurant was not busy while we were there. Their prices are reasonable for what you get.

“A Great Place For Breakfast or Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Okay...so it is so worth searching for...just don't look in the big Crossroads shopping center. It is in the Barnyard...near the big Post Office. Perfect granola! Great wraps! Huge portions and really friendly servers. Our go to place out of Carmel:)

“Reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

You can always rely on this place to be consistently, good, homemade food! The inside eating area is small but they have a beautiful outdoor eating area! We ate here for breakfast & lunch! Both were outstanding! Their service is good as well. Definitely what we would call "old reliable"!

“Hard to find, but worth the hunt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had to walk around the maze of a shopping area to find the place, but once we did, it was great! The waitress was great - very personable and attentive. The food was DELICIOUS and definitely "From Scratch" - if we had found it earlier during our visit we would have gone back daily!

“Good breakfast but hard to find”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Tucked beneath the Barnyard Shopping Village, this place is tough to find. But we had a good breakfast and enjoyed the coffee.
