“Traditional old time breakfast!”
Reviewed May 18, 2011

If you are looking for traditional, down-home, local diner then this is the place. Our server, Sharon was pleasant and brought that touch of hometown hospitality (not to mention she has worked there for 32 years!).
We ordered oatmeal and cream of wheat as it was a chilly morning. Both were made fresh to order. It was our best breakfast by far on our trip up the coast.

“The real thing, an oldtime cafe with good food”
Reviewed April 15, 2011

A real old time cafe, with booths and a counter. Many breakfast choices, some unusual such as linguica and eggs. Excellent service. Cases hold a large number of pie slices. A wine frig. is one modern touch. It's been there since 1942, and from the looks of the clientel, it must be a local favorite. WAE did not have dinner there, but it looks like old time substantial food on the menu.

“Great place for breakfast!”
Reviewed March 31, 2011

Vic's Cafe has the best pancakes in town! We love coming here for breakfast. The service is friendly and the servers keep my coffee cup filled at all times (very important!). The owner comes in very early in the morning to make the biscuits from scratch, they are a must!

“We drive through Paso Robles several...”
Reviewed March 31, 2010

We drive through Paso Robles several times a year. However, we will not come here again. Poppers were blah, Cobb salad although plentiful was non discript. My companion tried the Montery chicken which was dry and served up with "boxed" mash potatoes (sorry guys that's not "home cooking"). I will say this is a locals spot.....our waitress did take a locals order first even though we had been waiting longer.....so much for hospitality. Neah....try another spot next time.
