The diner is located on the quieter end of Cannery Row, next to the Outlet stores in the ATC building. One person was on the till, so it was a 10 minute wait to give our order and then 30 minutes before it arrived at our table. The sandwiches (sand dabs and tuna) were both very good and the prices reasonable, but they really haven't sorted out their production line.

Half of our party liked this place for Breakfast. They ordered chicken and waffles. The other half that did not like it and ordered omelets. Canned mushrooms were awful and the eggs were not cooked properly.

Nice stop after a walk along the coast. Their prices are cheap and they have a great assortment of draft beers! They have a nice amount of outside seating too!

The food was ok (burgers and fries) not bad but not the best I had. Service and price were reasonable but the location was nice, not far from the center of things, but still a bit off to have a quiet break.

Archie's suffers because it is near First Awakenings and does not have all the great outside seating. Do not let this deter you. If the line at FA is too long, go here. The service is very prompt and the breakfast food is very good. Plus, they do have about five tables for sitting outside. I usually stop here about 2 times per month on my morning walk.
