We stopped here for an early lunch on our way to Monterey. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun.My husband had Shrimp Benedict, and I had the California burger with a salad. Both were very tasty and served quickly by a helpful waitress. We arrived at 11:15 on a Thursday morning, and when we arrived the place was almost packed. By the time we left, the crowd had thinned out, but the majority of tables were filled. We saw several orders of waffles pass our table, so it looks like waffles are a popular item. This is obviously a popular place and we would go back when we are in the area. There were a few tables outside also for street-side dining. If you are going on a weekend or for breakfast at the "normal" time, you probably will wait for a table, but it is worth the wait.
