The Los Gatos Café is popular among locals here, but I'm not a big fan. Servings are huge, but the food is mediocre and the coffee is awful. Service is all right, though, and the waiters/waitresses are always ready to refill your coffee cup. The...More

I disagree with some of the other reviewers, who defined LGC as the "Best Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch EVER!", because this is not the case, but if you are looking to get a large portion of decent food because you don't want to cook it at home, then...More

We liked Los Gatos Cafe so much that we ate there two lunches in a row during our weekend visit. I think that says it all. The food is simple but delicious. We had a warm cinnamon roll, hamburger, eggs Benedict, and more, and all...More

This is our weekend regular, and you would think that after years it would get old. Wrong! It's better and better if you can believe that! The important thing is to pace yourself. The cinnamon roll is quite an experience, but must be shared (3-4...More

The portions are huge and so tasty. This location is busy so if you can time it right you can get in and out... The parking can be a little tricky on busy times. Great shops near by and many good ice cream and dessert...More

This is a neighborhood cafe that never disappoints. The food is always good, service is fast and excellent. It's as good as the original downtown LG.

Known for their breakfasts for their menu choices (they serve lunches too and restaurant closes at 2 pm) near Union Ave, and if you prefer other than fast food establishments and expensive restaurants in Los Gatos. Servers are friendly and fast service with a smile!
