What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Zagat Criteria
Today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of south-of-the-border-between-the-United-States-and-Mexico-inspired dishes and delectable drinks at Crest Café, a Zagat-rated feasting-ground. With celebrated breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus, there’s a lot of terrain to navigate your curious taste buds through.
It takes a lot of love to sustain a neighborhood restaurant for close to three decades, and that love is well earned at Crest Café. Signature dishes span the entire day. Wake up with the Carolenas corn tortilla, which puts a delicious egg, salsa, jack cheese, and avocado breakfast on a bed of tortillas, similar to the one you woke up in ($7.95). For a sweeter bite, embrace your state pride with the three-raisin french toast with currants and Thompson and California golden raisins ($7.25).
When you’re in need of a midday or evening pick-me-up, the variety of delectables is highly impressive. Along with a great collection of pastas, salads, burgers, and sandwiches, there's the bell-pepper infused turkey meatloaf ($9.95), the Not Your Grandma’s Chicken Pot Pie ($9.95), and the honey-glazed pork chops ($15.95). For those who leave room in their digestion chambers, the croissant bread pudding and butterscotch pecan apple crunch sing pretty melodies of filling-you-up and bass lines of mouth-thrills.
Crest Café makes food for people who eat food and serves up plates with a whole lot of love and attention. It's become a can't-miss local institution for locals and non-locals not living locally.

You don’t just become a Zagat-rated restaurant for no reason. Straight from Zagat rater Peter Bogard, here are his criteria for determining top-notch restaurants:
- “How difficult would an adult find the maze on the children’s menu?”
- “Do the restaurant’s TVs cover my parent’s silence after I admit I was expelled from dental school?”
- “Are groveling dogs discouraged from wandering the dining area?”
- “When is karaoke night?”
- “Is the cute waitress really flirting with me or just being polite? I should ask for her number. No, I shouldn’t.”
