Former factory is now a casual, cafe-style space & patio for omelettes, pancakes, burgers & more.- Google
"Great eggs benedict and burger, and the outdoor fire pit is nice."
"Big generous portions, great customer service, very charming little place."

The food is delicious and portions are large. The wait was about half an hour, but we did get here at 9:30, so we expected a wait. We would definitely come back when in the area!

Great breakfast food. Although my parents live in Santa Cruz we like coming for breakfast here on occasion. The food is very good as well as the service. I would highly recommend the eggs Benedict or the granola pancakes, the pancakes are huge.

Fantastic breakfast food. Worth the wait (And besides, you can just browse the Sock Shop next door while you're waiting). Sat outdoors, which was a little gross because pigeons swarm onto tables pretty soon after the customers leave (If the plates aren't cleared fast enough). As a result, every outdoor table is armed with a squirt bottle to help fend them off (Which is kinda funny to see, but it's not actually necessary to take up arms. It seemed that the pigeons had vaguely enough sense to keep their distance until they were sure a table was unoccupied). You will note, no doubt, that even the spectacle of seeing tables swarmed by sky-rats did not sufficiently alter my opinion of First Awakenings to the point where I would dock them any stars.

We always end up here for breakfast when we're in Monterey. Great indoor and outdoor seating (and sometimes the outdoors come inside when a bird wanders in). Extensive menu, all your breakfast bases are covered. Great place to enjoy a bite before walking over to the aquarium. Often a little wait but overall a win.

Amazing peach-coconut pancakes & delicious potato hash with eggs that tastes like qīngjiāo níuròusī 青椒牛肉丝.
