This must be THE place for breakfast in town judging from the line waiting to get in. And it didn't disappoint. Friendly wait staff, quick service, good cup of joe, and good sized servings for the money. Looking forward to coming back.

Esau’s is a warm and friendly family and friends dining experience. The restaurant has a surfing theme and silent surfer videos play continuously on two TV screens. The restaurant has comfortable inside booths and outside patio dining. As locals, we eat breakfast here several times a month. My favorites are Arti’s Scramble and the Salmon and Lox scramble as well as the Mediterranean breakfast special. Most breakfasts come with a choice of hash browns, home style potatoes or a cup of fruit in addition to a choice of toast, English muffins or buttermilk biscuit. The menu is extensive and the food is plentiful for a good price. The atmosphere is lively with conversation. The wait staff is knowledgeable and the service is usually quick.

Too bad Esau’s is on the other side of the the globe from home !! Loved absolutely everything aabout Esau’s restaurant. The orange Naugahyde booths, Formica counter tops,super efficient college girl waitresses, cool beachy neighborhood vibe and of course the wonderful varied copious breakfast menu. The food was excellent they have everything you could want and homefries as well as hash browns and both 5 Star ! They went above and beyond to accommodate the vegan in our group. I’ll admit it ... I’m a huge Esau’s fan (and apparently so are Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher who were there too having a low key breakfast with the kids)

This friendly cafe deserves all the glowing reviews. Our breakfast was delicious, with plenty of first-rate coffee. Someone in our group insisted on having one of the famous warm frosted cinnamon buns as a dessert after a huge pile of eggs & hash. It was so good he managed to eat it all. Silver dollar pancakes were great and omelettes were just as requested.

Helen, Amie and I called in for lunch recently. This is a genuinely honest place, staff are great, food is plentiful and there are no pretensions. If you are looking for generous portions of honestly presented food then search no further! We tried a quesadilla, a salad and fully loaded nachos. All good, solid dishes with great flavour and big portions. Go hungry!
