We stopped here on our drive back to Dana Point, CA. Parking was difficult so we parked at the mall opposite that had free parking for 75 mins. The food was really, really good. Our waitress, a lovely lass, was part of the owner's family. The service was good and the place looked efficiently run.

I googled the best places to eat in SB and this was one of the results. It was a walk from our Hotel, but well worth it. The services was exceptional and the food was delicious. Huge portions too.
Glad we went with this location. Would definitely return. The only downside was we sat outside and our table was way too small for our orders and uncomfortable, and it was just two of us.

What is not to love??? Best Blueberry Wheat Germ Pancakes and eggs....Best Coffee (which I ended up buying a pound it was sooooo good) My sister loved her Huevos Rancheros and the bacon was excellent as was anything that came to our table - including the service. Loved it and would HIGHLY recommend to others.

This is where locals come to have a good hearty meal and awesome Bloody Marys. The pancakes are the best, fluffy, moist and hot. The omelets are huge and all the breakfast specials are great. My favorites are the chicken fried steak, louisiana hot links, and ham steak breakfasts. I get the hash browns but the home fries are great too. Don't miss the home made biscuits, jam, and Bloody Marys either all the best.
