Thank goodness they're back. This has been an institution for me for eons. I was so glad on first visit that the same Lou's was back...great food, service, ambience and personal attention by ownership. I'll be back as a regular.

Lou's is a great breakfast place. I enjoy introducing people to Lou's. I've gone in there alone, ordered a meal and read the paper while eating. It's a funky place. I'm amazed at how many people know Lou's - it's been around for a very long time. Parking isn't a problem.

Lou's has been there a long time. We enjoy going there for breakfast. The serving portions are big, while the prices are reasonable.
I love their french toast...while the kids usually get one of their pancake/scrambled egg combos.

Friendly place to get a tasty, filling breakfast. Supposedly this is the first restaurant on the Bascom / Los Gatos Blvd. strip. Don't know for sure but it has been in the same spot for decades. Depending on when you arrrive there can be a bit of a wait but the food is worth it.

I love patty melts and have had them at 100s of places all over the US. Lou's is far and away the best I have had anywhere. So good infact it is almost impossible for me to order anything else. Luckily I always go with family so can sample the excellent breakfasts too. The coffee is strong diner style coffee so if you are a StarBucks kinda person you will be disappointed but if you like you coffee strong and black with you oversize breakfast this is a good place to get it. Lunchs are normal size but breakfasts are huge if you are lite eater bring a friend and share because you will not be able to finish the generous portions on your own.

Pros: Almost every item is excellent!

Cons: The Sunday after church rush and they only take cash.

My first time here was a good experience. I had the "pigs in blanket" and tried some gravy and biscuits; both dishes had big portions and was delicious. It's not as "charming" as some other places, but serves great food and has good service.

Pros: inexpensive, good service

a decent greasy spoon type of diner for breakfast. Decent pancakes. But oh my goodness the coffee is nasty and blucky. Too hot, burned taste and very robusta-ey. I think that with some great local roasted coffee made fresh and a small uptick in the quality of some of their items these guys could rock again. Love to support the local indies but it better be better. This is a good palce for family breakfast but needs some high quality.

\r Think big. In fact, think huge. The waitresses at Lou's have bulging biceps from hefting the huge dishes to the tables. The menu reads like a greatest hits of '50s diner fare: tall stacks of pancakes slathered with…
