Our family went here for breakfast while staying in Santa Cruz. We loved it so much, we went back the next day. Healthy options available as well as the standard choices. We will definitely be back whenever we are in the area.

Delicious! We were quite impressed that our combo breakfasts came with 4 slices of bacon, not 2. The blackberry muffin was great! We all enjoyed our meal and agreed that next time were in town we will be back, it was great to bypass the...More
