Old fashioned cafe with good food at a very fair price. We had a late lunch and the place was still packed, we took the last open table. Quick service and good food. Many of the people were locals, which is great! It is a neighborhood hang out!!

Had breakfast one morning with a party of nine. They were very accommodating with a large walk-in group. Food and service quite good. Not your resort type foo- foo food or atmosphere but, just good all-American food. I would recommend the home-made corned beef hash.

We found Vic's on YELP and went strictly on the reviews. They were so right. It is an old time cafe, like stepping back decades (in a good way!). The staff is great very friendly. We went back the second day for breakfast, BUT on our third day it was so crowded we didn't want to wait, so we continued... More

Vic’s is typical: Typical diner restaurant, typical service and typical food. Typical meaning warm, inviting, friendly, fresh, tasty and affordable, and I would happily recommend a lunch there to anyone. [Sorry to Vic, if there is a Vic, and team, but you can blame TripAdvisor’s silly labels for your Average rating. If there’d been something between Average and Very Good... More

Basic plain, breakfast. Nothing with pazzazz or yummy. Just kinda boaring plain food. It is good but just plain. Service is always friendly as ever. They sell homegrown amazing tomatoes that we always pick up. But overall it is simple, ok basic breakfast. Pancakes, simple omelets, eggs, bacon. Nothing frilly.

Good for breakfast. Stopped here on our visit wineries of Paso Robles. Nothing special about the food (at breakfast time), just very decent and honest. But the atmosphere and décor are awesome. We have visitors from other country with us, so it was a great presentation of American old style diner with huge meal portions served and locals around. We... More

Vics Café is a great place for locals, and a restaurant visitors also shouldn't miss. This was my 2nd visit and there will be more. Last night I had their Salmon special and it was delicious. It has a very relaxed, casual feel, almost like a diner. But don't let the ambiance fool you, the food is very good and... More

This is a long time staple in Paso and we go reasonably often. Breakfast is good...it's a tad pricier than other places but location probably is the reason. It's walking distance to all of downtown. Servers are fun and efficient. We like it!

Vic's has been a feature on 13th in downtown Paso ever since I can remember. It used to be a couple doors down form present location, the earthquake forced the move I guess. Yes, locals eat here regularly. The waiters and waitresses know your name after a few times. Show up enough they know your regular order also. That kind... More

We stopped in for dinner, not knowing what to expect, and came out feeling stuffed! Vic's was hands down delicious. I had the open faced beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. My friend had the California burger and fries. We had to get a container to take half with us! It was so yummy, we couldn't leave it behind.... More
