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

Great staff, good service. We love the small town atmosphere of San Juan Bautista, the Mission and the quirky spots in town.
