“Great, fresh food and huge portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

Stopped here for post-marathon refueling and left full and happy. We had planned to eat elsewhere, but happened to park nearby and got a chance recommendation from a friendly and helpful passerby. So glad we changed our plans and stopped in! Got a table on the porch and enjoyed huge servings of corned beef hash, pancakes and sandwiches. The food was great and service was wonderful. Prices are slightly higher than what you might expect for breakfast/brunch, but seem spot-on for the area and for the gigantic portions.

“A must go to breakfast in the Carmel/ Monterey area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Simply amazing. Just go, you wont be sorry.

Huge portions, amazing food, and quick friendly service. So many kinds of eggs benedict that it makes it almost impossible to decide. Everything from the waffles/ cakes, to benedict, to a simple eggs/ bacon/ potato plate are all awesome.

Every time we are around here we make it a must to stop here. It can get ubsy and it is a cash only place, but if its a 10-15 minute wait its well worth it. Only gripe is that it can get rather tight inside there and you are eating rather close to your neighbor. Also it can get rather loud in there to where you kinda have to shout to have a conversation. But with that said its well worth it still. Go there, eat, you wont be sorry.

“Cute porch, huge portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

I wouldn't eat inside, pretty cramped; but the porch is nice, with heat lamps if it's chilly. It is pricey but everything in Carmel is; we had lunch - quesidilla's and reuben - both were hot, homemade, fresh, delicious, and huge portions. We liked that they gave us a choice of breakfast potatoes, potato salad, or regular salad for the side dish. And where else can you say that you dined like the King of Jordan? Warning: Cash only. And it's likely to be at least $40 for two with beverages.

“Brilliant breakfast - especially for gluten-free pancakes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

We had a wonderful breakfast here recently and chose it because it was one of the few places that catered for someone with a wheat intolerance. Our daughter seriously enjoyed the buckwheat pancakes and my husband and I enjoyed our huge portions of French Toast!!! It was a very friendly place and was very busy which is always a good sign. Please note that it is cash only but there are atms nearby if you get stuck.
