This place has such a forgettable menu and mediocre quality that I even hesitate to review it; but I have to mention that they do the finest version of My Downfall -- a black-and-white malt -- that I've ever found since leaving the dairy heartland of the Middle West of my childhood. Made with our local Marianne's vanilla ice cream and just the right amount of chocolate malted milk powder, and served in an icy metal malt beaker with a glass and whipped cream on the side (the only way), it is a taste of my youth. Though I gave it very low ratings for everything except the good service, I wish there had been a place to check "Quality of Chocolate Malt" -- I'd have definitely given that a 5!

We've eaten here 6-8 times in the last few years and have never had a memorable (in a good way) meal. The food is OK, pretty average and the service disappointing. We've had to wait up to 10 minutes to get menus and have had to walk to the cash register to get the bill. The waitstaff, on all but one of our visits, were very inattentive.
I do know of other locals that love this place. Since it's just over a mile from my house I would love to like it. As it stands, there are only two other regular breakfast places, not counting fast food, in Scotts Valley. It's worth the 7-10 min drive in to Santa Cruz for a memorable breakfast experience. I've written 7 other reviews for TRIPADVISOR and they have all been very positive.

It was a cute little diner. This was our third breakfast out in Scotts Valley and it was the best one. The food was tasty and the staff were nice. The halloween decorations were fun, too!
