Returned again for breakfast. Food is good and so is service. Easy parking. Prices for what you get are good.

My sister I came here on a Sunday at 10am. It was full but they got us seated quickly. Service was friendly and fast. I had the smoked salmon Benedict and it was really good with fresh spinach on it. Yum! I will be back.

Located in the Crystal Springs Village shopping center, parking a little tight but turns over quickly. Three for lunch. Very loud and crowded, tables cheek by jowl. Hard to even talk across the table. Excellent waitstaff, quick service and the food! We ordered a Swedish crepes with berries (excellent); and ham, egg, and cheese croissant (excellent); and a monto cristo... More

Have had breakfast there several times & always good. Tried the turkey at lunch and was rolled turkey and not very good. Service is good but when busy, two servers for whole restaurant not enough to handle people. Prices are great & better f you have a coupn.

This is a real gem tucked into the hills of San Mateo with a nice outdoor patio to sit and enjoy your meal. Especially good for breakfast/brunch!

Such a nice family type neighborhood coffee shop! I've been there twice for breakfast! Terrific hash browns & my fried eggs were done perfectly! Service is prompt and servers are friendly and helpful. My coffee cup was filled without asking for more coffee! Prices are good and parking is generous as it is in a mini mall. ENJOY!

The servers in this restaurant are friendly and provide good service. The food is a bit hit and miss. I had a vegetarian omelet that was good but the home fries were overcooked to the point of being burnt. It also bothered me that the doors were open and there were flies buzzing round. YUK! It was warm and I... More

American fare presented by friendly staff. Food is tasty and well priced. Service is decent and the coffee is hot! Breakfast, for me, is the tops as we get a choice of pancakes with the omelets! They do take coupons but only if you have a hard copy - no digital coupons. Bummer!

Thank Fulldistance
