This will be a new go-to b-fast place for me when in SLO. Portions are giant. Order a single meal and split it. The breakfasts are super delicious and available at all hours. Biscuits are the best I can remember having. Service was good.

Stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday. Easy to get seating at 9:30am , but by 10:30 the line started. Breakfast was very good. Largest portions I have ever been served. I suggest splitting a meal.

If there ever is a next time, I know I will pass on this restaurant. The place was overpriced and the food was sub par for us. The steamed vegetables were the only thing I enjoyed, sad to say. Maybe an off day??

We were staying at a nearby hotel and decided to walk to breakfast. This restaurant has a very convenient location and the servings are HUGE, really enough for three people. They do offer a slightly smaller plate for a dollar less. The prices surprised me...More

Always a great breakfast, never a small portion of food, I have never left here unsatisfied, and I've been here multiple times over 2 decades.
