Is Gaffey St Diner in San Pedro wrth a drive from the SFV?
Wish I knew but haven't tried it. If you do will you please post a review?
However--that is a long haul for pancakes & biscuits. Maybe combine it with another SP experience to help justify the drive, like visiting the fish market at Ports O' Call?
Or a harbor cruise?
Might as well make a day of it & enjoy another SP eatery before you go home. Though it doesn't get a lot of mention here, we like Papadakis Greek Taverna, though admittedly we haven't been there in quite some time.
