this was almost a four star but the coffee was just really marginal. Good portions, great staff, but the food was a touch greasy and uninspired. The best bet was the cinnamon French toast.

We went to eat at Vic's because of the high reviews on Yelp. The place was pretty crowded for a Sunday morning. We decided to sit at the counter to avoid having to wait 20 mins. The counter is very uncomfortable to sit at. Tight and low chairs. No place to put your purse was complained about by my gf.... More

We've been eating at Vic's Cafe on and off ever since we moved here in 1987. Have never been disappointed. Good prices and have always gotten plenty of food. Came on Saturday night for their Prime Rib Special. The meal included a dinner salad, Prime Rib, a baked potato and a vegetable. The vegetables (i.e., carrots) were cooked just right.... More

We arrived in Paso Robles just in time for lunch. After eating seafood almost everyday since arriving in California, we were looking for a something different. We were actually in the mood for some good old diner food, and when we stumbled upon Vic’s Cafe, we knew we had come to the right place. When you walk into Vic’s you... More

Pork chicken fried steak & eggs was brilliant. Super friendly service. Treated us like regulars. Definitely recommend this place for breakfast at the least.

Went here for breakfast on the basis of the Yelp rating. Have to say I was disappointed. Had the Paso Robles omelette which was very bland tasting. My partner had the bacon and eggs. .... no idea where they got the bacon from. ... looked like dried turkey bacon. The accompanying toast was made from the cheapest possible bread. Coffee... More

Vic's offers a very good "home town" feel with cheerful service and very good options for breakfast; highly recommended.

So I want to start that the food was delicious. However the service was not so courteous. When asked to make the 49ers breakfast a certain way, the waitress flatly pointed out no it can't be done that way. It has been done before but I guess she didn't know. It just made for an uncomfortable experience. Smh.
