Food was good healthy and well presented..Service was adequate but no ump.. Whoever orders the coffee is not a coffee drinker , ten years in Santa Barbara and the worst cup of coffee I’ve had.. Will not eat breakfast there again for that reason.. Get it together guys you have a great location

Great breakfast spot with a bunch of options. The thing that really stood out was the top notch customer service. Best in town!

Nice little diner with classic menu. Breakfast and burgers served all day.

So I believe they have a bar back, a dishwasher, and cook and 1 server, now I understand things opening back up and trying to get workers, well Sergio did a terrible job. Takes about 20 mins to take our order, then just leaves about another 20 mins go by, but no one comes by to ask for refills, order comes and brings half the order and 5 mins later another half comes back he brings the other half and is forgetting the bacon we order, so that takes another 5 mins, and each time he is bolting away, with out even asking if we needed anything else or refills or even water. Seems they are too busy doing all the other tables, maybe my standards are high , but I came down from Palmdale so I can't expect much. Then they charge us for extra bacon as he is arguing with me about it he says he didn't hear that we ordered the bacon egg combo, then proceeds to argue and say he read our order back , no he didn't the second he got to the table he was waiting to bolt away with his tablet.

So, walking there I was intrigued by the placement of an "adult" store, not my cup of tea but hey, always nice to know where these stores are. Aside from that, I enjoyed this restaurant, I had the Chile Verde omelet and blueberry pancakes, my wife had the hamburger steak and eggs and it was pretty good, cooked well and good flavor. Prices were fair and the staff was quick. Good place for breakfast and perhaps a good stop on your way to the "adult" store.

Delicious breakfast outside. Very busy place so understandably service was slow, but cheerful and attentive. Food is very good. Reasonable prices.

It took a while to order our food.service at first was not the best but it was friendly after. Food is good, I ordered the veggie omelette with hash brown. It was good not so greasy or over cooked omelette. Orange juice is fresh and good. Get a bite if you're close by.
