As locals we frequent the Sahara often. Interesting breakfast dishes and huge mugs of coffee. What's not to love!!! Best in OC for breakfast. Too bad they close for the off season. :-(

From the moment you walk in you get a fun vibe. It's a bit of old hippy with the vibe of love and we are all one :-) The food was great...we went looking specifically for biscuits and gravy and a good breakfast. Other reviews...More

You can't be disappointed going here. But go early, the line starts forming around 9am. The portions are large so come hungry. Also, bring cash. Credit cards aren't accepted.
