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.

The sausage was excellent. The service was good. The place was not very busy on a rainy week day morning. My only complaint was the coffee was weak and watery.

I have been going to From Scratch for years. I have never been disappointed! Their omelets are always fresh and full of flavor. Their biscuit is over the top, too. Be sure to get that as your side and you will be glad you did!

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.
