Traditional, nothing extra about the place.. except it has a great ocean view from across the street, been around since the 50's . and a great landmark! Look inside at the display case for all the old memorabilia.

The only thing that keeps this from being 100% authentic is the age of the servers, otherwise this place will bring back your memories of roadside diners. This is the perfect place for breakfast in Santa Barbara. Right across from the Marina, we enjoyed a typical coffee shop breakfast. I ordered the banana nut caramel pancakes, and they were scrumptious! My husband had the breakfast sandwich, which he very much enjoyed. Endless coffee refills, great service, and good location. You can't ask for more for a casual breakfast along the sea!

Nice food, friendly and helpful staff and it won't break the bank. Ticked all the boxes and we'd gladly go back.

A SB breakfast classic and a kid's delight. Early birds get their choice of table, service friendly and fast
