Busy little spot. Has charm and great food. The waffles are the best! We had the bacon stuffed seeped fries waffle as an "appetizer". Truly something special! The eggs Benedict was good by the yolks were not as runny as I would have liked. Had a great time!

On our February stay in Los Gatos, we had breakfast at Southern Kitchen at 27 E Main St, in downtown Los Gatos. The restaurant is in a older commercial building, that appears to have been repurposed for several businesses on the ground floor. As we were driving up to San Francisco, we had our rental car, and it did take... More

Visited here on a busy Saturday morning. There was about a half hour wait for a table so we took the seats at the counter, just as good. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was delicious and plentiful. Simply put this is a nice place to eat good food.

A colleague recommended we try Southern Kitchen for breakfast while in Los Gatos on business. I thought it was just because he was enamored by the famous folks who had visited there in the past, but we were game. We enjoyed a delicious and hearty breakfast in a cozy atmosphere with friendly and attentive service. You can get the expected... More

Was a busy morning and only took about 15 minutes for a table to free up. Inside it's clean, warm, inviting. Seems much larger when peeking in from the street but the mirrored wall fooled us. It did provide nice view and lots of light though, especially for our table way in the back. Menu offered so many choices! Everything... More

A great place to have breakfast. Menu is rich and everyone can find something he likes. I had an omelette with Bagel that was very good. Staff are also very friendly

Have now eaten here four times in the last month while in Los Gatos for work. A first-class breakfast house with very friendly service, food made and specialized to order (no issue with egg whites, etc.) and the food is outstanding. They make great omelets and pancakes too.

Very nice diner in Los Gatos. Not too big with a nice comfortable and cozy atmosphere. We were late in the afternoon so were able to get a table immediately - nice as it can be busy at the weekends. Big menu choices with typical diner foods. Service was very good the food came out quite fast. There were 4.5... More
