So on a windy day, my group of five ladies got the smoked tacos next door ay Riddell's. They, of course, serve no alcohol, and that is usually a given for our meals. We decided to ask the ONLY employee at the COMPLETELY EMPTY Skipper's if we would order some beers and french fries, and eat our tacos with our... More

We come here every time we're on the central coast. They have great food (big portions), interesting and comfortable atmosphere, and the friendliest staff around.

Had a quick breakfast on Tuesday morning. Service was great, and food hit the spot. It was kind of refreshing to visit a restaurant that didn't take credit or debit cards.

Skippers is your classic country diner. The food is kinda like what you see is what you get. Eggs & Bacon to Burgers... it's all good. I love the interior of Skippers which captures old images of Cayucos. Skippers is a great place to stop in for a quick bite to eat when heading north or south on hwy 1.... More

We visited for breakfast on the 4th of July. The other place we always eat at chose to close for the local parade. Bummer. Skipper's welcomed us and our puppy (for patio dining)! The food was good and service was adequate, being they seemed to be the only place open during the parade. The gentleman helping out on the patio... More

We sat on the back patio in the shade, our waitress was lovely and friendly. I had the French toast with bacon and eggs, was delicious!! He had the bacon... More

I had the Western Omelette and Hashbrowns. The omelette was great and cooked perfectly with a mind blowing cheese center. The hashbrowns were slightly over cooked and super crispy.

I am giving this place two stars because it is dog friendly and has a great oceanfront location. In Cayucos, with these two pluses there should be a line for Sunday breakfast. When we ate there, only about 3 tables were full. Drinks in styrofoam cups, plastic cutlery. Portions were huge, but eggs over cooked, coffee bad. Service perfunctory at... More
