Whenever we take Hwy 101 from Northern Calif to Southern Calif we always stop at Louisa's for breakfast. This last time we ordered the Cinnamon roll combo (eggs, potatoes, 4 bacon, amazing cinnamon roll), Italiano omelet, and Linguica omelet. Each plate was large and delicious. This is our kind of breakfast place!

Came across Louisa's by chance this morning, people were waiting outside just to get a table. We had two breakfasts, really really good. Took a little longer to get served as they were so busy but well worth the wait. We were so impressed and would definitely recommend coming here

I live about 30 minutes south of Louisa's place, but I will come here at least twice a month for breakfast. Today it was country fried steak and eggs. Yummy!
