Before breakfast was the first meal of the day, it was part of a mid-day supermeal—Dinner, Breakfast, Nash, & Young. Give breakfast’s solo work its proper respect with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of hearty breakfast fare at Scrambl’z, located on Almaden Expressway. This model of morning nourishment maintains a fresh menu of house-made daybreak fare derived from top-quality, local ingredients. In addition to plating more than 12,000 farm-fresh eggs a week, the chefs prepare their own pancake batter, whip their own butter, and squeeze their own oranges. Black-and-white photographs and festive red booths imbue Scrambl'z with a fun, family-friendly aura, and an eclectic collection of vintage relics—including a banana-yellow VW Vanagon—hover around early risers, morning daters, and hopelessly lost time-travelers looking for the seventies.
- Everything its fresh. OJ is squeezed on site, healthy options and kid friendly. I had their fresh local corn, zucchini and sweet potato scramble with buttermilk pancakes. It was awesome. Its our favorite breakfast spot. – Lixa M., Yelp
- We have been here for lunch as well, the food portions are big and the service is always great. – May O., Yelp
Though it serves breakfast all day, Scrambl'z isn't your typical diner. With a hollowed-out VW van as a seating option and eclectic decor inspired by Disneyland donning the walls, Scrambl'z makes a memorable impression. Owner Jim Angelopoulos dedicates the eatery to the man who first showed him the restaurant business ropes—his father. Continuing the legacy that his parents began in 1979, Jim works to create a family-friendly spot that dishes out breakfasts made from scratch. From orange juice to pancake batter to butter, the staff makes it all by hand. The kitchen cracks more than 18,000 eggs each week, transforming them into omelets, scrambles, benedicts, and edible monuments to Charles Barnard, inventor of chicken wire. Lunchtime favorites also have their places on a menu that offers burgers and sandwiches along with stacks of pancakes, gluten-free french toast, and waffles steeped in syrup.
