Our customers Speak…

The Silver Spur is my favorite restaurant in this area. Great food served with lots of TLC, comfy, wonderful staff, friendly. Highly recommended!”
Julie, Capitola

We love the Silver Spur because we’re vegetarians and enjoy the tofu scrambles; because the restaurant is cheery and comfortable; and especially because Linda and all the Silver Spur people make us feel so welcome.”
Jessie and Richard, Capitola

Good food, great people. Santa Cruz’s best breakfast place. Most restaurants have huge turnover. Yet, the great staff shown on the Spur’s outdoor mural are mostly still there, ten years later. Customers are just as loyal.”
Pete, Santa Cruz

Where old friends meet and new ones are made – the Silver Spur! A lunch special with delicious fresh vegetables or a breakfast offering from oatmeal, home­made pancakes to deluxe omelets. I have a hard time naming just one favorite... I lean strongly toward the homemade desserts – the apple pie is to die for! Enough already, go see for yourself.”
Frances, Santa Cruz

I love that there’s a place I can go where I always feel welcome and I can get a perfect piece of warm, homemade apple pie or a bowl of oatmeal served on a doily. Linda cares about all the details.”

It is a great place to start the day. It has a very cozy atmosphere, but with a lot of energy. The staff is always upbeat and friendly. Perfectly scrambled eggs. Crisp, not greasy, bacon. FRESH salsa. And my personal favorite... the Spur’s muffins. I’ve observed Linda frosting a cake or preparing something behind the counter. She has a nice way about her. Hands down, this IS the best breakfast restaurant in Santa Cruz County, perhaps in all of California.”
Vi, Boulder Creek

My grandson Danny and I believe in the power of a good breakfast. So we often have breakfasts together on weekends. My personal favorite is the Silver Spur because it’s a friendly place and the food is good.”
Dan, Aptos

Silver Spur has been our favorite for many years. The food is excellent, fresh, and always perfectly prepared. The wait staff could not be better; service is top notch and they are like family friends. Linda is always trying a new soup or new special then polls her customers. It is a pleasure to dine at Silver Spur.”
Linda & Laura, Santa Cruz

From The Press…

In a world of poses, attitudes and designer statements, Silver Spur is downright refreshing... Nothing beats a full-on, two-fisted breakfast... My eggs over medium were nothing but perfect, and the accompanying bacon was lean, crisp and tasty.”
Metro Santa Cruz

The Silver Spur is an anomaly. It’s a down-home, ranch-style, cowboy-themed, bottomless-cup-of coffee kind of place – but with a mass of fresh flowers in the restroom and organic tofu and homemade granola on the menu.
  The Silver Spur is a scene, in the best possible way. And it’s no accident. ‘I try to have something for everybody,’ said Hopper, ‘Because I want everybody to come.’ That accommodating attitude includes having vegetarian fare, offering signature specials and soups and creating housemade desserts.”
Santa Cruz Sentinel

Your appetite will soar at the Silver Spur. Just pulling into the parking lot gets most of us salivating for some of the finest made-from-scratch breakfasts this side of the Rio Grande.”
Good Times

Best breakfast spot I've ever been to. I can't get enough of their food. Wherever I brunch, I compare my experience to this golden standard of breakfast diners. After moving away from Santa Cruz, I miss Silver Spur more than anything else.”
