I'm sure if I'd have gone for a different breakfast this might be a better review. However, my English muffin was rock hard and burned at the edges. My server was awesome though.

We stopped in Santa Cruz for lunch as we were driving to Big Sur from San Francisco. We tried local beers (very good) and had some terrific burgers. Prices were reasonable and the service was great!

Nice little restaurant in a good location. Plenty to choose from on the menu. Didn't like the soda price. Kids ordered a soda and they brought a regular can of 12oz soda for 2.25.

We have eaten breakfast here a couple times & it is always good. Simple food, consistent, with good coffee. It is tiny, so you could wait a bit. And the table next to the door is a bit inconvenient.

The food wasn't bad but it wasn't very great either. We had the guacamole omelet and a chorizo scrambler. The omelet was very plain and there wasn't very much chorizo in the scrambler.
