“Good Food,”

The Half Way House Cafe
Ranked #60 of 523 Restaurants in Santa Clarita
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 January 2017

The cafe is located on a country road right outside of town.

As others have commented, the location is used a lot by Hollywood so the outside looks a bit beat up which is part of it's charm.

The inside is really cutely decorated with lots of placards with funny sayings. It was well kept up and clean.

We had a bacon cheeseburger with fries and a open-faced turkey sandwich that came with mashed potatoes and a side of cranberry sauce. The food was good. The mashed potatoes A+. The prices were fairly typical - maybe a bit high for what you get.

The service was average.

My oldest grandson just graduated from Cal Poly SLO and this was his pick for a late breakfast. I have eaten here before the 14 Fwy was even on the drawing board. The food was plentyful and very good. The server was FANTASTIC and wad handling the place by herself. The only thing I would ask is, if you make biscuits and gravy, use a good, well seasoned sausage base. The gravy was almost just a roo.
We will be back

The food is a bit better than average, but the venue is so well known in movies and commercials, that you really should check it out. We went on a Sunday morning, and the place was virtually empty at 9:30am. Tostada omelette was very tasty, and the chicken fried steak and eggs were as well. Service was very attentive, (remember not busy), and the overall experience was better than most. Cute place.

Support local small businesses. Great food, funky diner atmosphere, attentive and kind waitresses and cashier/ hostess. Best coffee ever! A friend brought me here and now I am a definite regular customer. Easy parking, clean bathrooms, a must visit. A shout out to morning waitresses... U R the BEST!

The food is average - but there is a lot to chose from. The service i friendly and very very nice. And the authenticity of the place is over the roof. If you want the true cowboy feeling, this is the place to go. No wonder a lot of movies and commercials shoot here. We were won over by the Whole experience (not the food). I've heard the burgers are good.
