Breakfast place with large portions known for their coffee cake. Service was very slow and the floor was quite dirty for a place with such a good reputation. The waiters didn't seem to enjoy servicing the customers. I would give this place another try but...More

The food was pretty good and had a valuable price. The OJ and tea were very good, and so was the omelet. The omelet had a lot of garlic in it though. The blueberry coffee cake was a good side dish. Would return if in...More

Our group of 20 were all pretty pleased with our breakfasts. I had french toast that was supposed to have cinnamon (which I couldn't taste) but it was still good. Others had omelettes and scrambles and the felling was that this is a good place.

Great place to have breakfast when in the Stanford area. Specials are always good, and the coffee cake is amazing. I always order it to go since the breakfast is large enough to fill me up.

Spent every morning of my 3-day trip to Palo Alto having breakfast here. I liked the variety in the menu as it was not limited to typical breakfast items. Able to have Quesadilla for breakfast and unlimited coffee. Friendly staff and very fast service.

Classic american food (Californian I guess), big portions, some healthy options, very happy with the food. Went twice, service was great first time but very slow the second time

Glad you enjoyed your meals. (My apologies for the slow service on your second visit.) Love your "classic Yank food" description! Need to make it to Brisbane and try some classic Aussie fare.

Had a really great breakfast here, huevos rancheros to die for, with some chorizo, a hint of cumin, wonderful fresh eggs, crunchy hash browns, what a way to start the day! Friendly service, nice family atmosphere, why would you eat in your hotel?

Thanks, Ferd! Coming from someone who travels the world, "best huevos north of the border" means a lot!

Visited for breakfast when I was staying at the Hilton Garden next door. Didn't have to wait to be seated and was offered tea or coffee right away. Service was professional. ordered whole wheat pancakes with strawberries. It was very good.
