Friendly service and delicious food. I had the half waffle and egg. Waffle was delicious as was the syrup they provided. Egg was cooked just right as well. Looked like a place where the locals come for breakfast which is a good thing for me

We went since it is listed as oldest/longest running restaurant in Laguna - and while it showed it's age, it was decent. Pretty homey place, good for a burger or some comfort food. Service was good.
