This restaurant has been here forever. I live in Los Gatos and just love it. The best thing about it is the breakfast mimosa's. Perfect for Sunday brunch. The food is nice, quick and hot. It's located on the outskirts of town but easy to get to. You can order eggs any way you want it ....including delicious poached eggs... More

I hadn't been to Lou's in years until this visit. Decided to try and avoid the weekend breakfast crowd and try it again. The menu is expansive and the food was delicious. Saw several bloody Mary's go by and a few mimosas, too. I didn't even know they served them! The service was very attentive and we were seated immediately.... More

Our favorite Breakfast joint. Small but packed with friendly locals and a great staff. Fast service by folks who want you to enjoy. Fresh homemade food and large portions to satisfy on the spot or take home! Good Biscuits and Sausage Gravy, Great Corned Beef Hash, Outstanding Ommies, Benedicts and Scrambles. CASH ONLY (ATM). Love to go during the week... More

On the recommendation of a client went into Lou's this am after a hike. Not disappointed. I ordered the Mazarati omelet, my friend ordered the shrimp and crab omelet, The Mazarati was good but a little heavy on the cheese and sauce but the shrimp and crab---to die for! Very generous with the seafood. Only wish a little lemon in... More

Recently revisited this neighborhood gem. The breakfast was delicious, the service was fast and friendly, and the food was value priced. And, the best thing was that the wait was much shorter than some more "popular" weekend breakfast spots in town. One draw back is that it is a cash only establishment.

Although I have only eaten at Lou's one time, that was more than enough. Will not be going back. For all the pleasant places in Los Gatos for both breakfast and lunch, why here may I ask? Did I mention the prices were also quite high considering the fast food quality of the food? Service was sluggish and disinterested, food... More

Lou's is open for breakfast and lunch and is not to be missed, especially for breakfast. Their portions are large and all so delicious. It has a feeling of "the old days" and the meals are consistent. Be prepared to wait if you are there for breakfast on the weekend. It's worth the wait and will be your favorite too.
