Fodor's Review

This noisy café filled with students and families defines the funky essence of Santa Cruz. It also dishes up great breakfasts: stay simple with sourdough pancakes, or go for Mike's Mess—eggs scrambled with bacon, mushrooms, and home fries, then topped with sour cream, melted cheese, and fresh tomatoes. If you arrive after 9 am, expect a long wait for a table; lunch is a shade calmer (closing time is 2:30 pm).
