Right off Foothill Expressway, nice selection of food. Parking in back, they are tied to a couple other stores. Very nice Ice Cream.

For a long time, Tom's Depot was just getting by with greasy & mediocre American Classics. A few years ago, new owner took over & revamped the service as well as the menu. Now it features both classic American as well as some Tex-mex favorites. As they only open for breakfast & lunch, breakfast is their business. Eggs are always... More

Blueberry pancakes. Bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, toast. Coffee, with frequent refills. If our newspaper was better, it would be a perfect morning. Service is fast and friendly. It's nothing fancy, which is just right. I see my neighbors here. It's fun. The traffic is a little funky with the bridge reconstruction underway, but it doesn't really affect parking or access.

Good traditional family diner.Everything was hot and fresh. Easy parking in back. I would come back again. Bridge being redone across foothill expressway, does not affect access.

usually go there for breakfast when visiting the grandkids(which is great), but went for lunch this time and had a great chef salad. My wife wasn't that hungry so she got a grilled cheese sandwich and she said it was very good.

Take a step back in time and head to Tom's but in a good way. All traditional fare including burgers, club sandwiches, and a ton of breakfast items. This continues to be a Los Altos treasure.

Everything here is good. I love the blueberry pancakes and my wife always has an egg choice. The servings are generous. Their omelets are delicious and huge. Having lived in Los Altos for a long time we've seen this space be many things. This is probably the most successful incarnation since its early days as a soda fountain.

Local joint, very clean and easy access. Breakfast is always good, cost about $10 for a decent meal. Staff are friendly and attentive, or not as you prefer. Breakfast is OK, nothing spectacular, but how can breakfast be? Easy, clean, and tasty, that sums up a good breakfast, eh?

Thank Robert R
