A group of friends has gathered for brunch here each month for at least the last 10 years. The food is consistent & good. You can substitute bakery items such as coffee cake and muffins for toast.

Hmm. The service was less than friendly. And, the food, which looked good, wasn't quite as tasty as I thought it was going to be. I ordered one of the specials, the Norteno Plato, which came with a nice homemade sausage, but the masa cake was like eating a piece of cardboard - dry, tough and tasteless. Too bad, it... More

Not particularly attentive service.Like...our server should either try to do a better job or find a different line of work. Ruben sandwich was okay tasting but so tough I had to cut it into smaller pieces in order to eat it. My wife ordered a polenta dish...also mediocre, small portion & overpriced. Having stopped by here before for coffee and... More

If you love breakfast, you really need to go to the Westside Bakery Cafe. First, they make the best homemade sausage patties.You can't find that anywhere else nearby. The breakfast potatoes are done just right too. Second, the bakery part is awesome. Their muffins and coffee cake are also homemade. Don't even get me started on the banana blueberry pancakes!...

Friends have raved about this place for years and I finally had the chance to dine at the Westside. They have catered a number of events for friends and businesses and I always missed the date. Now I can say: Westside - Love it. Highly impressed with menu and very high quality of food - had the best "Trio of... More

My wfie and I have eaten there three time.. The portions are skimpy, the service is almost non-existent and getting the simplest cocktail is an ordeal. Anymore, we go to Juan's Place when we are in the area. Why waste the time or money.
