This small mission town congregates here for coffee and breakfast, maybe lunch too. The help is competent and the food is good (at least the breakfast was great). Just step back in time and enjoy a plate of eggs and bacon.

We stopped here prior to a visit at Mission San Juan Bautista. Excellent breakfast (Chorizo omelette and eggs/bacon). Service met expectations and the café was busy on a Sunday morning. Recommended for breakfast.

Relaxed diner atmosphere. Really good, basic food with great service. Typical American fare. Had a belt with avocado, boyfriend had a gigantic burger. Large potions, decent prices.

Great place to stop before or after visiting the old mission and state park. Lovely staff with vintage bar to be seated. Have a coffee and relax.

Stopped by for coffee with my wife. We wound up odering pancakes, scrambled eggs & sausage. The food was cooked perfectly and the service was excellent!! Nice little place with the 50's theme. Clean restaurant! If in town again I will definitely go there again....More

Friendly service and a great breakfast awaits you here. Big portions too. Hash browns were perfect. Lots of thick pieces of hams on the eggs Benedict and the hollandaise sauce was tasty.

I saw some people in the kitchen, but I don't think what they were doing could be called cooking. Poor quality, not flavorful.
