The food is amazing, but what really sets this place apart for me is the friendly service. Santa Cruz is the land of grumpy waitresses, but I always get a genuine smile from the staff at the Walnut Avenue Café.

We were visiting friends in SC and came to town early so we stopped in at Walnut St. Cafe. The place was full and we waited about 10 minutes for a table. Well worth it. The Benedict I ordered was fantastic and my husband had the patty melt. We told our friends we ate here and they confirmed its one of their favorites too. Coming from locals that says a lot.

Just went here this morning for breakfast....all I can say is Delicious!! I had the feta tomato and basil scramble and my boyfriend had the avocado mushroom and cheese scramble, both of which were excellent!! You won't be disappointed if you eat here!

My husband and I come here at least once a week for breakfast and occasionally for lunch. We've tried many other restaurants in the area over the past ten years and, hands down, this is the winner. The food is excellent. The staff is polite, caring and attentive and always pleasant. We have noticed that it's kid and handicapped friendly. Come early on the weekends if you don't want to wait.
