I had the crab benedict was very good and filling. There was plenty of crab meat on the order. The coffee comes in a large cup which is like having two cups in one order. The place was packed but they managed to get customers in and out quickly. The staff was friendly and I believe the owner is a... More

We came here twice this trip to OC. If anyone is considering opening a breakfast/lunch place anywhere our advice is to come here, sit and watch. This is a business that works. The staff know what to do. People come in, orders are taken, meals are delivered. Greetings are liberally sprinkled, small concerns are addressed (ok, large to those who... More

My family of 4 ate here on a busy Saturday morning. There was a crowd at the door waiting for tables and the place was packed, but they were seating people very quickly and we only had to wait about 5 minutes. The service was good, our waitress was very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious, there weren't many... More

Sahara Cafe is a very comfortable place. The service is warm and friendly. The food is cooked with care and prepared perfectly. Eggs are light and fluffy just like the pancakes. The bacon is about the best I've ever had and creamed chipped beef is so creamy. We've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed.

Gave this spot a 2nd chance after a disappointing previous experience. Much better this time around, particularly from a service standpoint. Helped that they were not very busy on this visit. Omelettes were very good, SOS was decent, prices were good.
