Between Trip Advisor and DDD, I'll never go hungry or have a bad meal. This is a quaint little cafe whose menu packs a wallop. The menu has a wide variety of fresh items. We had the Turkey Bacon Lettuce Avocado sandwich (TBLAT) and the Chicken Quesadilla. The portions satisfying, but not glutenous. We were able to finish our meals... More

I wasn't sure if we were going to try this place because of some of the mixed reviews. I am very glad we did. I honestly don't know why anyone would rate this place with one star. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service by Hannah was friendly and efficient. I had the frittata with sun dried tomatoes which was... More

Lots of fresh-made, organic breakfast choices. Delicious fluffy "steamed eggs," great local chicken apple sausage and house-made sour dough bread. Scones were almost too crumbly to easily eat. On one morning, the steel-cut oatmeal on the menu was not creamy in spite of adding cream. The next day the steel-cut oats turned out to be whole oats that were rather... More

Stayed for 4 nights just up the road from this cafe/restaurant and had breakfast here every morning. The service was second to none, the food was freshly cooked and delicious and the prices very reasonable. Would highly recommend.

We were in Monterey for 2 nights planning to try a couple of places for breakfast. This place was so good on the first day we returned the next day. It's an understated place that you would nearly miss, behind a Denny's restaurant. Friendly staff, served promptly. I had the veggie hash with eggs over easy day 1 and with... More

We had breakfast here on Monday as we were staying at a motel nearby. We ordered two lattes, an oatmeal with fresh berries and two egg, bacon and potato breakfast. The latte's were hot and yummy and the food one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in the US. We were looking forward to coming back on Tuesday, but... More

We enjoyed house granola and a special of pancakes, avocado and eggs- an amazing portion- and of course, house coffee. Perhaps too much sugar in the granola? Wide selection on menu, but not too much! Good location, easy parking.

We have been here several times for breakfast, and the service and food get worse each time we come. Yesterday will be our last visit. The coffee was cold and bitter (which is the worst thing for a breakfast place). It took us 3 requests before our coffees were replaced - still bitter, but at least warm. Our food took... More

I was so delighted to discover this restaurant on my vacation last year, that I made it a priority to return again when visiting the area this year. What a gem. I love everything about this place. A quaint local spot, this restaurant appeals to me on so many levels. First, I will say that the owner is very friendly... More

This little cafe with its breakfast specialties was so highly recommended and I was really looking forward to the famous "steamed" eggs on this busy Sunday morning. We were a party of six...a big number for this tiny space, but we found a table in the corner and all squeezed in, excited to try some of the healthy options on... More
