We recently spent several days in Monterey California and ate at Grandma's Kitchen several times. The food is excellent and the service top notch. Maggie is one of the servers and she is so lovely. We had lovely conversations with her as well. There is a large collection of owl memorabilia which makes it interesting as well. If you are... More

The food was excellent as was the service. The portions were just right and the coffee tasted fresh. Make sure you plan to visit Grandmas if your in Monterey!

Traditional cafe diner, kind of quirky inside. Seems to be also known as the "owl house" or something? Nice place with good menu choices, good value for money and friendly staff.

Great breakfast stop. Lots of choice. English tea available was a big plus for us. Great portion sizes not too excessive. Great value for money as well. Cheaper than some other local places and just as yummy! Highly recommend starting your day here!

I had the Chorizo and egg plate for breakfast and it was as good as what My Grandma used to make! I haven't had it this good since hers'. I was so excited to let my wait staff know how much I enjoyed my meal

Excellent salt beef and great friendly service. We also had a 10% reduction because we had a recommendation from our motel

Gina was very friendly & helpful! Loved the breakfast burrito & it was very filling! My husband loved the bacon! We tried a new hot sauce & ended up buying several bottles...made in Gilroy, CA! Thanks for a great start to our day!

Hubs and I ate breakfast at Grandma’s Kitchen while visiting Monterey and we would definitely go back. It is a small, friendly diner serving basic diner food at a reasonable price. Nothing fancy here. Service was friendly. Prices were as expected. I can’t recall what we ate, but it was good enough that we would return if in the area.... More

Sunday morning breakfast. Wasn't particularly crowded. Nice service. Prices were ok. Perfectly good food. Definitely dated inside but not a bad spot if u wanna grab breakfast before heading to the airport.

We went here on a Saturday morning around 8:45am in early November. There were 4 open tables when we arrived, and a few more by the time we left. Maybe there was a crowd earlier. This is a local dive restaurant, meant in a good way. Breakfast was very good and service also very good. Proportions were large. Instead of... More
