We happened on this place by fortuitous accident when looking for breakfast, and it was outstanding. We both have gut issues, and so cannot do the standard bread-based breakfasts. We had the omelets, with the apple sausage, so delicious! Great coffee too! Sad we did...More

Great little cafe that has been there since 1969. Our first visit. There are interesting photos of staff and friends starting in 1969 and continuing over the years. I would guess that this might be a locals favorite. I know that if I lived in...More

My husband and I are longtime Monterey locals. We had another wonderful dinner at Tillie Gort's last night. He had a Turkado sandwich (turkey, avocado, etc.), and I had a Mushroom Garden Burger. We also enjoyed Tomato Basil Soup, a marvelous flan, and a great...More
