We ordered malts and fries. All of us were pleased with the malts and service. Old funky place but great if you enjoy the way things used to be in the small family grill days.

Friendly service with a mom and pop feel. Worth the money if you are having breakfast for two. Would repeat to try the rest of the menu.

The burgers were delicious and the service was enthusiastic, positive and friendly! I took my in laws from ND and they absolutely loved it. We had such a good time I just made plans to go back for more home cooked goodness!

This family-owned cafe has been consistently excellent over all the years we've been enjoying its food, in particular, for us, breakfast. It's a real Laguna "tradition" and one we always enjoy.
