The Wild Plum Cafe & Bakery-Monterey
2 visits and 2 successes warrant a Wild review (albeit Wildly brief).
-Great Coffee (french roast, very strong without the 'burn'
-Awesome pancakes (both visits)! Have had both the cinnamon-apple and blueberry (plus bites of regular buttermilk). So, so moist and fluffy with just the right density. Along with actual, real butter and ACTUAL, REAL maple syrup = $$$
-Fresh Fruit Selection is always seasonally based and doesn't have that "storage taste."
-Attentive service, food comes out hot.
-Freshly baked pastry, muffins, etc...Hello flaky blueberry scones and lemon muffins.
-Only minus, It's cold for someone like me (shaved head, runner) so I have to bundle up. Such a minor inconvenience will never stop me from frequenting this place!!
Definitely a must try for those who have never been and a return visit for those such as myself.

731 Munras Ave
Monterey, CA 93940; basically around the corner from Denny's on Abrego, catty-corner to the Chevron and hidden in the back; it's also next to a thai restaurant.
Basically, it's cold because its a smaller space with lofted ceilings; just don't sit by the door, lol.
thanks--looking at the map, I think I've been there before, perhaps when it was first open. I got some pastries and they were first rate. The menu looks very comprehensive and will give it a try next visit.
IIR not a lot of parking nearby, I snagged a spot across the busy, somewhat narrow street. Looks to be a good alternative to 'the usual' dinner spots in town if looking for quality and choice but not fine dining. I hope some reports will be forthcoming. Being open for breakfast at 7 is great.
