Nice portions, great food, good service. Place can use a bit of cleaning up (sticky tables) but other than that would return. Delish meal all the way around. An old fashioned coffee house. We liked it. Had a club sandwich, soup, corned beef hash and eggs benedict. Very good.

We had a short wait (5-10 minutes), the place was packed. The menu has a huge variety. Our table had strawberry pancakes, banana pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, and a breakfast combo of hashbrowns, eggs and calamari. Everyone was happy with their food. My husbands only complaint was the coffee. He stated it had a funny taste, similar to the water. The other 3 of us only had orange and apple juice so I can't compare. Prices very reasonable.

We had a delicious breakfast here - large portions, good quality food and great service! If you're a deprived Midwesterner who rarely gets fresh avocados, I highly recommend their Californian omelet - the avocados were fantastic! We would definitely return here if we pass through Monterey in the future!

Found us a table within 20 seconds of being there, even though it was packed. Service quick and efficient, food was yummy and very large portions. The only downside, the coffee was not that great. Another tip: Offer free range eggs for your omelette and fresh juices.

Walked in for a quick lunch and took the calamari sandwich. It tasted great, was cheap for such a big portion and the service was quick.
