Very nice selection of items and very well prepared. Seating is nice so one is not cramped and little pressure to turn the table unless you view the front door and the folks standing a waiting for their turn in having a generous breakfast!

We stopped for lunch after a visit to the Steinbeck Center. We had tuna sandwich and Turk e sandwich, both were tasty. We were amazed at the amount of food we got.

There is not a better breakfast place if you want great service from the first contact with the host station, to the staff to the superb food selections available.

The 4 of us had 4 different breakfasts from a burrito to the mushroom cap plate (superb!) to egg choices. The food arrived in the blink of an eye, hot and presented very nicely.

The portions are huge ... bring a good appetite!

Well, when highway one is closed going south on a coastal road trip honeymoon and you find yourself in Salinas, California, you go to TripAdvisor and find this little gem.... it did not disappoint!!! We were thrilled. A delicious breakfast... I got an omelette and my husband got the heuvos rancheros. We were in a lot better mood after leaving this joint during our "hiccup" travel plans.

Thanks for a yummy meal!
