Great selection of breakfast choices. Plenty to eat. Good service. Plenty of parking at the Nob Hill Center. The Cinnamon Roll is a must.

Love their eggs florentine and bakery items. They have coffee at the front for you to take while waiting for your table. No reservations. Cash or checks only! It’s worth the wait.

Though it's been there for 30 years, first time to eat there. Atmosphere is relaxed. Service was excellent. Food was excellent, tasty, and came quickly. Waitress was out of central casting, charming. Will go back soon.

Delicious Sunday brunch after a 15 or 20-minute wait. Crab cakes are amazing and the potatoes cooked perfectly. Cozy diner atmosphere and the service is fast.

Los Gatos Cafe is the best breakfast place in the South Bay. It specializes in breakfast and brunch. It has wonderful omelettes and freshly baked goods. It gets very crowded because it is a local institution so arrive early especially on weekends. The food is...More
