My sister's and I stumbled upon this restaurant while driving down Highway 1. We were drawn in by the reviews. Lunch was good. But the coconut bread pudding we had for dessert was worth a specific visit. Awesome!!

You'll annoy Tex and Claire, the owners; Linda's been gone awhile. Good food, very well prepared; impeccable service and delivery. Home-made cinnamon roll or muffin with every meal, and they're not small. Families, neighborhood people, and folks who came in Porches sit side by side....More

People who live in Santa Cruz know about this great little restaurant, most tourists haven’t found it yet. What I love is the great breakfasts and it opens at 6:00am. The wonderful Tofu Scrambles are large, hearty and a great way to start a busy...More
