Lou’s Coffee Shop: Old-School Los Gatos Breakfast Joint

Lou’s is a tiny little unassuming breakfast spot on Los Gatos Blvd that we’ve driven by on more than a few occasions without thinking much of it until we finally decided to give it a try.  The interior of Lou’s is like a step back in time to the classic American diner period.  It’s interior is worth the stop alone just for it’s uniqueness.  The menu has all the classic breakfast items and a list of daily specials like different scrambles, breakfast burritos, omelettes, different types of pancakes and homemade corned beef hash. The service is great and the portions are huge.  The prices are a little higher than most but that’s Los Gatos for ya.  It’s worth the stop if you are in the area for the atmosphere alone but the food is high quality and done right too.

Hours: Mon-Sun. 6:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.   CASH ONLY

Zach: I loved the  interior of this place.  The corned beef hash was great and I liked the bite I had of the buckwheat pancakes and the omelette. The key to a good diner in my opinion is their use of potatoes and the hashed browns here were excellent. For an example compare the hashed brown photos from Lou’s and SC Diner and you will see what I mean. This place comes highly recommended from me.  The only problem for me was the price and the fact that it was cash only but you do get a large amount of food and it is LG after all.
