If Marston's is a 10, this is a 3. Cozy and dated, not wheelchair accessible, serving typical coffee shop food. An Altadena favorite for decades but ordinary as to offerings. Yes, it is a cute friendly place.

This Altadena staple is a must visit for any locals or visitors to the area! Their breakfast is outstanding! Especially their pancakes and omelets. The lunch menu is also delightful. Go for a burger! It's a great place for kids! Just ask and they will bring out a cup of crayons for kiddos to color on the placemats! The staff... More

"Comfortable" -- there is no better word to describe the food and atmosphere of Fox's. It's addictive in that you know what to expect and they will always meet that expectation -- at least they have for the many years I've been dropping in occasionally for breakfast.

Old school since 1955. We were on our way to Echo Mountain to do a hike so we stopped by to share breakfast. This place was a house in its past life and has become a neighborhood go to place for breakfast and lunch. We were here on Mother's Day Sunday and we just got lucky to find a table... More

I've been coming here for years and bringing friends here or recommending it. It was becoming a tradition to have breakfast here after hiking Echo Mountain at the end of the street. I like that you can just get a little food without blowing your diet or wasting. It's a quaint, family-run diner. I always get the #9 breakfast. Their... More

The breakfast was delicious, french toast was superb. Ham was thick and juicy. Service was impeccable. Alicia was an absolute sweetheart. Charming, tiny with ample seating. Even has a drive through Coffee bar in the alley behind the restaurant - no kidding!

Fox's is a great place, especially for breakfast! Bring a paper, relax and enjoy a home cooked meal. Nobody rushes you and the food is consistently good. Try the Blueberry muffins, you won't be disappointed.........

This local restaurant has great food, large portions but is always crowded due to its popularity. Worth the wait!

A small, simple and homey place serves great food. The breakfasts are big and a good value. Check the hours.

Fox's is a small, family-run neighborhood breakfast joint that's great to go to when you don't feel like cooking, but still want eggs and sausages/bacon or pancakes or whatever else you fancy. Our kids love it there, we love to go. However, know that it IS your standard American diner kind of food, nothing special or fancy about it (but... More
