I lost my L S U southern cookbook at this place and they still use it.. I have been around the SK since Rose decided to buy out owner Tom Ward. She made the commitment to hold the standards of the food served to the best possble tastes, portions, varieties, service and value. Everything is great and the wait is worth it. I just wish I could get my Louisiana State University cookbook back which Rose promised long ago in 1997.
There Otta Be A Law.
Really disappointing experience. We have taken relatives and friends to Southern Kitchen for years and the past 3 experiences have been a real disappointment. Despite the long waits, the food quality has definitely changed for the worse, strange grits, tough eggs, holandaise sauce that two at the table suggested might be right out of a can. When our guest from out of state approached the manager, possible owner, to comment that the bisquits served to our table were stale, his response "but we baked them yesterday". When we then mentioned that the water glass he had been using was delivered to the table with a huge red lipstick stain, the manager/owner responded "Yeah, There Otta Be a Law" .
With other fine restaurants available in Los Gatos, we will pass on the Souther Kitchen the next time we entertain guests in LG.
The world's best grits!!!. My Husband and I are from Nashville visiting the northern California area. We always try to find good local restaurants to eat at. I found this place by reading the reviews from Citysearch. This place was great, when we arrived on a Sunday it was about 10:30 and we had less than a 5 minute wait. The food goes from super heavy to light and healthy. I had the mushroom and cheese omlette with artichokes and jack cheese. It was served with crisoy hashbrowns, superb! My Husband had the eggs benedict with bacon and creamy grits, they were awsome! Highly recommend this place, cool people, good service and solid food selections.
Great Breakfast and Lunch. One visting the Nor Cal bay area should not fail to put this location on your itinerary. Eat anyway you want to at the SK, light, medium or heavy. You'll find a variety of wonderful home style dishes to satisfy your breakfast and lunch cravings. If your lucky you'll get some fried green tomatoes. You wouldn't be disappointed with any of the unique and original style recipes. Come early to beat the crowd (all week, 7-days). Anticipate a slight wait. Coffee is provided while you wait. The operators and staff are courteous and want you to be happy. Omelets, French toast and pancakes are great! Burgers are good too.
Great weekend breakfast!. You definitely feel transported once you enter Southern Kitchen. The dining area is very quaint - love the specials they have written above the counter - worth the wait!
Wonderfully flavor-layered breakfast food. The salmon eggs benedict was out of this world! I appreciated the smooth spices and perfect sauce that was rich, but not fulsome.
fantastic food, good service, great coffee. This was a little whole in the wall, but the kind we love. The food was fantastic and we were served promptly. We ordered a side of hashbrowns and got Idaho ! talk about value ! The place is small so you might have to wait, but definitely worth it. The coffee was one of the best I've had at a dinner-type place.
hash browns and apple french toast. the food was awesome! our waitress never asked us how anything was and we had to ask for coffee refills. Poor service, but good food. I will keep looking for a better place but would consider going back the food and coffee was so good.
prices vary, but great service. I've been going to Southern Kitchen for as long as I can remember (at least 12 years). The fare is pretty good - my family, when we go, usually orders exactly the same thing, but the price varies depending on who writes up the bill (+/- 1.50), which is kind of weird. Everyone is really friendly, but get there early if you're going on the weekend!
wonderful. The atmosphere at Southern Kitchen is charming and the service is great. The eggs, sausages, hash browns, and the eggs florentine I ordered were tasty and not too greasy.
