Los Gatos Cafe/Iron Skillet, whatever you call it, call it AWESOME. The souffle omelets are ridiculously light (not calorie wise) and fluffy and perfect. The potatoes have to be the best thing since, I don't know, potatoes were discovered. They're cooked and seasoned perfectly and a little crispy. So good! The carrot bread, cinnamon rolls and raspberry coffee cake are so good you'll roll off your chair in enjoyment. No people, I'm not exaggerating. You'll walk away 4,000 calories heavier, but it's so worth it.

This place was very very good at one time, when they were known as The Iron Skillet. They had delicious breakfast and the best and most gigantic cinnamon roll I had ever seen. We went back a few months ago under the new ownership, were seated fairly quickly took a look at the menu, and actually got walked out. Never did try the food, but there was nothing on the menu that even looked good. All the only breakfast items that remained were omelets (and the giant roll) and nothing looked/sounded good. Would not recommend if your looking for choices at breakfast or if remember the old Iron Skillet.

This was my favorite breakfast spot in the Bay Area until my visit there last Sunday 4/22. We sat down and were handed new menus that read "Los Gatos Cafe", come to find out they had just changed ownership on Tuesday. Nothing that was on the Iron Skillet's menu was on the new "Los Gatos Cafe" menu except their famous Cinnamon roll. The menu was horrible along with the new food and the service. I was incredibly disappointed and you will be to if you go there.

Great breakfast place. They make their own baked goods so their toast (french and otherwise) is terrific and their cinnamon rolls are amazing - they're huge! Really good corned beef hash. Haven't had a bad breakfast here. The service is generally very good and friendly but it can be spotty. Great place for kids. Parking is fine but they do get busy on the weekends.

We had not eaten here in years. Went a while back the food was very good and reasonably price. The service was exellant and friendly. Seemed very clean.

The Iron Skillet Cafe is the last affordable family restaurant in Los Gatos. The humongous, trademark cinnamon rolls are incredible, as are all of the fresh-baked daily breads and bakery items. Mostly standard American-style foods, there are a few tasty Mexican dishes as well. Any kind of sandwich is highly recommended; that fresh bread alone makes them worth twice what they cost. Entrees range from about $6 to around $16 for their priciest steak. Many of these dishes are big enough for two people, so you might want to request an extra plate. The Iron Skillet does make pizza, but it's not that good, and the price should be enough to send most pizza fans to a true pizzeria instead.

PROS: Delicious family restaurant at a great price
CONS: Pizza is unimpressive and overpriced

My family enjoy dining at the Iron Skillet for breakfast on Saturday mornings. The key is to arrive early as the establishment is very popular for Los Gatos families. The cinnamon roll is incredible but should be split and not for one diner.
Recently went for dinner and the meatloaf was super.

Iron Skillet is a great family resturant. The food is delicious and the portions are generous. We especially like the fact that you can get breakfast for dinner or anytime of the day that you fancy. They have a great kids menu with lots of variety. For the adults, try the chicken pot pie (you'll be bringing some home for leftovers), the meatloaf with polenta (there's a secret ingredient in the polenta - it's the best!), or the BLT on their homemade bread.

With the change in ownership, we have decided to go back and give the Iron Skillet another chance. Great food, Great people is right. The menu has been updated to American comfort food--meatloaf, pork chops, chicken pot pies. All very good. The breakfasts--their signature meal--have gotten even better. The Skillet is a great gathering place for families on Friday nights during the school year.

We take our family for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The Food is great for everyone, and there is a healthy portion of good food for everyone. The Iron Skillet is a place that was previously lost to me by the intrusion of restaurants the likes of Denny's and Fast food. The food at other places is never close to the quality or value of the iron skillet. The friendly neighborhood atmosphere, cannot be matched. I had almost forgotten about great moments like, sitting in a family atmosphere and enjoying a good quality family meal. Sitting at the Iron Skillet and discussing my children's day, while other families sit around us and do the same, is nothing short of a step back into a better time. If you desire a great family atmosphere where regulars come three or four days a week, then the Iron Skillet is the place.

We go just for the Cinnamon Rolls at times......they are better than the County Fair type Cinnamon Rolls.............they are so large you can share.................The skillet breakfasts are pretty good................frequently refill your coffee...tasty coffee, fresh never acidy...Very kid friendly, provide you with color crayons and paper..........rarely a wait (even on Saturday morn).
