They advertised themselves as the best breakfast of Monterey. We haven't tried all the restaurants but would say that the breakfast was pretty good. Nice welcome when we came in. You can tell a lot about happy employees in a restaurant. Must try if you are looking for a traditional breakfast menu.

Ordered the California Benedict, eggs benedict with avocado, very good. The wife had the banana pancakes, 3 huge pancakes that couldn't be finished. If you can't find parking on the street in front there is a small parking lot behind the restaurant that has parking and there is a back entrance. Good local spot.

Unassuming local spot in downtown Old Monterey. Nice menu choices for breakfast - had a delicious omelet and good coffee. Was more of a local spot than a tourist place - which is exactly what we were looking for. Food was very reasonable - I would definitely return.

Old Monterey Cafe is located in downtown Monterey. Breakfast is always good at the restaurant! Every time I have eaten at this cafe, it never disappoints! It offers the standard mix of breakfast items at an affordable price. The service is always good and friendly. The only downside is that it does not offer many gluten free options.

Had lunch here recently. Food was good. Pretty basic, I had a BLT and it was as good as a BLT can be. Fries were same as you would guy frozen at a supermarket. My partner had an omelette. The serving size was large and he enjoyed it. We give it a 6 out of 10. Decent but nothing special.
