We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed our meal very much. The workers are friendly and our burgers/fries/salads were very good. Portions are generous. It's not a cheap place to eat, but it is a good value considering the quality. They close up early (2pm) so plan to come for breakfast or lunch.

This small, plain cafe in downtown Carpinteria offers fresh takes on classics such as eggs Benedict: theirs start with homemade biscuits, then comes a thin layer of sausage, eggs over easy, and sausage gravy to smother. Absolutely delicious. Don't miss their hash browns -- tender and crunchy with just the right seasoning and not too much fat. Pancakes are pancakes... next time I'm going to try the waffles. For $1 extra your eggs can be organically raised from cage-free hens. The service is kind and prompt, and the place is full of neighbors.

Dropped in by chance to get brunch on road trip with 3 generations.

We all sat along the counter and had great food and very good and attentive service. Everyone delighted from age 4 to the over 70s. We have some super photos of us along the line.

A quick pit stop turned into a happy memory

This place was empty when I walked in so I was not sure if it is because this place is unpopular and no one wants to eat there? But the guy working that day was so polite and friendly and had an amazing smile on his face so me and my sister decided to stay and eat. It was the best decision we have made in out eating history in a while.

We orders simple stuff like grilled chicking salad/ ruben sandwhich and salads. but it was tasted to different than food at regular diners. everything tasted like its been cooked by a 5 star chef.

Try the raspberry vinaigrette dressing with your salad. Its the best.
