Local place, limited menu, but good friendly table service. They are very accommodating, can serve larger groups (with notice)

We thought we'd try a local restaurant for breakfast and looked at a few reviews, then decided to go to Alphie's. We had to wait quite a while before anyone came to see if we wanted to order, it seemed to be the owner who...More

Owned by a family originally from the Philippines (and decorated that way), it's a day-in-and-out favorite of locals for many years, a great place to eat breakfast or brunch with your family if you are here visiting UCSB. The food and the prices are honest...More

The food was just OK. The prices were economical. Feels very much like a diner. I ordered the chorizo mixed scrambled eggs but the chorizo was dry and crumbly and was more or less sprinkled into the scrambled eggs rather than folded into it.

The food and service here is ok though the place is pretty run down. Not bad for a quick inexpensive breakfast.

Service was really slow. It took awhile to get our menus, orders, and food. The food was okay. I got egg frittatas-the drifter with a side of wheat toast, which definitely filled me up. The feta cheese on the scrambled eggs were a bit heavy...More

I sometimes eat there around 7, and there are already a few people there, so I'd guess they open at least half-an-hour earlier.
