Busy Sunday morning which we liked because it had a local feel rather than tourist. Great service and a great breakfast - made my own omelette and my husband had the typical fill breakfast - both were fresh and fantastic. Would highly recommend eating local.

I have never eaten at a place where everyone there repeatedly checked to see if we needed anything. The staff was great! Raspberry jam and cheddar biscuits were wonderful. Great stop in the barn yard

We were there for breakfast. There was a bit of a wait (45min) but there were 6 of us. It was completely worth the wait. Food was fresh, hot and oh so yummy. Traditional eggs benedict, sausage eggs benedict, and the Pebble beach omelet (pictured)....More

I'm not sure why this restaurant is so highly rated, we went there under multiple recommendations and was severely disappointed. Our lattes and cappuccinos came in beer pint glasses and it seemed like they had replaced expresso shots with watered down filtered coffee then topped...More

Corned beef hash was just ok. Cheddar biscuit and fried cheese grits were amazing. Had brisket chili that was just ok. Everyone else at the table had omelettes and liked them, tons of cheese. Homemade jelly and hot sauce were on point.

Not crowded, but I think you are cutting it a bit short. Food is prepared fresh and Pt. Lobos is 15 - 20 min. drive. Arrive 9:30 more likely.

Located in the LOWER level of the Barnyard Shopping Village - below Bay Bikes. The back stairs face Highway One.

From Eggs Benedict to made-to-order omelettes to the best Huevos Rancheros around, it's impossible to beat their award-winning breakfasts. The restaurant is available for private parties in the evening. Enjoy your meal inside next to the fireplace or outside on remodeled patio. Pet friendly! We hope to see you soon.
