Awesome Brunch & Breaksfast Spot.
I found this place with my dad when I was 13 and fell in love! I am 25 now and anytime we have friends in town we bring them here. It is always packed on a Sunday morning, so just expect that, but I am telling you it is worth the wait! The crab cake eggs benedict is to die for! And the banana pancakes are incredible. You might be frustrated by the wait, but you will not be disappointed by the food!
Real food, great prices..
Went in at 1:00 on a Saturday, not busy at all. Must be hoppin at breakfast time. Breakfast was served all day, so I had home-fried potatoes with 2 scrambled eggs, green chilies, cheddar cheese and sour cream on top. I can't help but think that some of the home-fries were from the morning and reheated (some were charred black). Everything above that was very tasty. The eggs were scrambled perfectly puffy. My sister had a tuna melt that she hummed through; this is a good sign. The outside dining area was huge and had it not be a bit on the chilly side, we would have been there.
We have been going to the RAC for 14+ years. It is a family favorite. They have a vast menu it's hard to make up my mind because everything is awesome! I have tried just about everything on their menu, apple/pecan pancakes, king salmon eggs benedict, bear claw french toast, specialty sausages & pancakes, the potatoes are a must. Enjoy!
My boyfriend and I LOVE this cafe. Unlike most breakfast places in Santa Cruz, you don't have to wait 40 minutes for a table at this place, no matter what time you come. Sitting outside is a must. Your cup of coffee will always be full. The menu is huge and there's something for everyone. Portion sizes are huge - you will not leave hungry. Try the Hawaiian French toast or the seafood eggs benedict. Yummy, and worth the drive!
