I'd been wanting to try Fox's ever since I saw the wonderful vintage sign! The insides did not disappoint. It is cute, cozy and the furthest thing from a chain style restaurant you can get! They were very nice. The food that I had wasn't...More

If Marston's is a 10, this is a 3. Cozy and dated, not wheelchair accessible, serving typical coffee shop food. An Altadena favorite for decades but ordinary as to offerings. Yes, it is a cute friendly place.

The breakfast was delicious, french toast was superb. Ham was thick and juicy. Service was impeccable. Alicia was an absolute sweetheart. Charming, tiny with ample seating. Even has a drive through Coffee bar in the alley behind the restaurant - no kidding!

Fox's is a great place, especially for breakfast! Bring a paper, relax and enjoy a home cooked meal. Nobody rushes you and the food is consistently good. Try the Blueberry muffins, you won't be disappointed.........

This local restaurant has great food, large portions but is always crowded due to its popularity. Worth the wait!
