Way Station Coffee Shop Reviews

I was excited to try Way Station…a classic diner, very good prices, and just basic breakfast food, nothing fancy….just what you need every now and then! Unfortunately, my excitement to be here wasn’t matched with the experience provided.

I came with my son and we were seated fairly quickly. Outside tables were available too (though it was a little chilly for our tastes so we opted for inside.) There’s a big sign that says “wear a mask” at the front door and the staff who greeted us and took our order were all masked.

I had coffee and my son had lemonade. He liked the lemonade…generous pour with a full, separate cup of ice.

The coffee was, at best, browned water…This is the lowest possible standard for diner coffee…Warm? Yes. In a nice mug? Yes. Brown? Yes. Any flavor? None at all. A breakfast place, to be at all legitimate has to have good coffee. The coffee here is not good.

While sipping it I noticed neither of the cooks was wearing their masks properly. One had it around his chin with both his nose and mouth exposed. The other only had his mouth covered with his nose exposed. The first one had no gloves of any kind on and I saw him touch his mouth with his hand, then reach down to put food on a plate. He was also using his bare hand to add cheese to the dish.

I understand different people have different preferences and comfort levels when it comes to health and safety…but it’s literally the law of the land that food workers have to wear masks. In the midst of a global pandemic that has killed almost a million people, there’s no excuse whatsoever for a cook to not be wearing a mask while preparing food. Not to mention touching his face and then plating the food.

As much as I appreciate a classic diner, a dingy one even, I felt like I was taking a risk by eating food they would serve here. We left some money on the table for the drinks and informed our server we wouldn’t be able to stay and left.

I can’t imagine ever setting foot in Way Station again after witnessing such flagrant disregard for mandatory health protocols. (Not to mention the lack of common sense on display by the cooks.)

Loved the ambiance. If you can get a seat at the bar, it’s like being transported back in time. You can even read old news articles about the coffee shop and check out old memorabilia.

Good friendly service. Was very busy for a weekday, which meant it took a bit long to get food, but worth the wait. Good old time coffee shop vibe.

Way Station is located in a cute area just off Main Street. The area is perhaps the best thing about Way Station. My wife and I went (party of two) and there was a 40 minute wait on a Saturday morning. That actually made us a bit excited (long wait = high demand = good food). Unfortunately, they have an archaic method of keeping track of the wait list by reading off the list and announcing it so you can’t go shop around while waiting because you’re not sure where you are on the list.

When called in, the atmosphere was fun and nostalgic with license plates and old famous people posted around the restaurant. The staff were really helpful and fast but the food took longer than expected. (That’s most likely why the wait was so long.) And when the food arrived, it was either over done (I.e., eggs and bacon) or underdone (I.e., the hash-browns). The coffee was not great either, like Maxwell house meets Folgers.

Finally, the price was very reasonable and the menu was not grandiose. They had the essentials but not much else. The best I could describe it would be that most people probably go for nostalgia, not for food.

the food wasn’t so great. I ordered a medium rare steak and got it well done instead, ofc they got me a new one. Hash browns were more like mashed potatoes the eggs are good tho lol. Also the old guy seemed a little rude

An old fashioned good place to eat. Great service and excellent food. Nothing fancy. The customers are as friendly as the employees. I really enjoyed this place!

Cheapest “full service” breakfast in Santa Clarita. Way too cheap… the food was good, not mind blowing like Egg Plantation, but it’s so cheap that it’s hard to complain. Service is spread thin because it’s a busy place, definitely worth trying.

Richard Galbraith

they serve me a broken egg. So I returned it and then got too runny eggs.
The fat Latino server dropped the plate in front of me. So I got up and walked out. I came back a week later and she shook her head at me as she took my order asking me why I walked out. They serve me Burnt unedible potatoes.
very poor service from this lady she is a horrible waitress and bad personality .
I will never go there again.

I was introduced to The Way several years ago and I still love this place. Old school diner that was once an ice cream shop with employees who’ve been there 30-40 years and who still work just as hard with great attitudes. The food is yummy and is priced right. Head on down to The Way Station!

Love this place. Would go there after church with parents when I was a little girl. I still go there at least once a month with daughter or friends. Good food and good prices.
