This place has the best red rounded seats you expect in a diner. The staff is friendly and professional and provide the service with a smile. The food is very good: not haute cuisine but something your mum could have made. Best experience on this...More

A nice little diner. They gave generous portions and our breakfasts were all tasty - especially the Huevos special. Even the coffee was good.

Great American breakfast in a proper American Diner. Extensive menu choice for breakfast and good friendly service with regular coffee refills. Was very busy and portions generous. The only complaint was that the smoked salmon with the scrambled eggs was super salty.

We have been to Esau's twice for breakfast. Both times the food was outstanding, both times the service was just so so. EXCEPT for the the bus boys who provide drinks and additional service besides food - they were great!

Went for breakfast the morning we arrived at Carpenteria. I've ate here a number of places and I really do normally enjoy it. This time, though, the lack of attention from the waiter really soured the occasion. It wasn't very busy or I could certainly...More
