looking for good breakfast in moorpark area

So hubby and I are going to moorpark to be with the in laws for christmas. We are going out to breakfast on christmas eve day and I would love to know of a great breakfast place. Even better would be a place that has good corn beef hash ( not stuff like the can) anything in the moorpark area would be great.

  1. You'd probably do better in Simi Valley or Thousand Oaks, both of which are a couple of minutes away from Moorpark and offer a lot more choice. That said, it's been so long since I've been in that area, I'll leave this question back in the capable hands of the 'Hounds.

      Yeah we are ok going into simi valley, thousand oaks, or camarillo. We saw Brent's Deli in Northridge in another post, however the in-laws think that may be a little far to drive for breakfast

      Brent's Deli
      19565 Parthenia St, Northridge, CA 91324

          Brent's has two locations one being in Westlake Village which would be closest to Moorpark. The food is usually very good. It is a bit higher end than the other places 's
          I am listing.

          If you want a small old school family kind of place try CACTUS PATCH at 197 E High St. (805) 529-9550. The area is cool. It's like being in Mayberry RFD.

          THE GRINDER at 1. West LA Ave is ok. I have had the food quality vary at times though.

          EGGS AND THINGS is a small chain that is always right on spot. They are in Simi and Moorpark. They are the best breakfast in Simi Valley.

          I don't see what the love people have for HAROLD'S is. I had a breakfast of sausage, eggs. very greasy hashed browns and toast recently and it was below average at best and overpriced. Maybe I should have tried the omelettes which I admit looked good. I assume that HAROLDS is loved because it's been around for so many years. I won't be going back again for sure.

            When I go to a place called the House of OMELETTES you can be sure what my breakfast choice is going to be. I had a classic Denver and it was great. Hash browns seemed as good as others I've had recently. No more greasy than one would expect. YMMV

                I have to laugh when I read about Harold's! I went there shortly after moving to TO and ordered the '3 napkin burger', and only (one) napkin given (the one on the table). The server never returned until the meal was finished to bring the check, never was offered any additional napkins!! Also, the one napkin was sufficient! Well, it's funny to me anyway!

                The three times I went there (B - L - D) I didn't find anything so special. The food was okay but it seemed like they served coffee shop food and like they wanted to be a Mexican restaurant too. Their prices were on the high side for the type and quality of food served. Portions were nice sized though. I haven't been back.

                have you had corned beef hash at any of those places?

                1. re: peacehopekarma

                  At Brent's and Cactus Patch yes. Call CP to be sure it is on the menu all the time. I may have had it on a daily special.

                  Cactus Patch Restaurant
                  197 E High St, Moorpark, CA 93021

                    thanks. Ive heard there is a long wait at brents so looks like cactus patch it is

                    1. re: peacehopekarma

                      I would go with Brent's because they always have your hash on the menu, has a very large variety and it is more comfortable to sit at. Brent's in WLV is not always crowded, especially at breakfast.
