Ample selections. You can't eat inside but there are chairs set up outside and you are steps away from the bay. There are also benches near by where you can sit, eat and enjoy the water.

Stopped for an ice cream and was really pleasantly surprised how yummy it was. A TINY little place with great tasting ice cream from Oregon.

Stopped by at noon on a week day. In a small complex with a hot dog stand and post office. Outdoor eating, only. We each ordered a double expresso. The volume was SOOO low, we could only imagine what a single was like. No more!

Got some ice cream here after eating lunch at the Fishermans Cove. Service was quick and their ice cream the best.

We always stop here on our way up the coast. It is nice because it is not touristy and has good food. We love the burgers. Have not had the ice cream but it looks great!

My wife had the double dip cone in a waffle cone. We have been camping nearby so it was a real treat to find a place that offered sweet sensations! They also serve expresso, but they don't open until 7:30 which seems late for a coffee shop. But this is well worth the visit.

The sign on Hwy 1 says Ice Cream on the top line and Espresso below it. We were looking for ice cream for the kids and being able to get espresso, too, was a double-dip for me. But wait, it gets better! That's ice cream AND espresso as in the latter poured over the former. What a delicious treat if... More

This is just off the main road and we were fortunate to stumble upon this place. The ice cream was delicious. I had the almond espresso with fudge. It was an exceptionally delicious flavor. For $2.50 a single scoop cone was plenty. My friend had mint chocolate chip and enjoyed it too. This place was busy with locals and everyone... More

We have been renting homes in Bodega Bay since the 1980's and our kids have grown up coming here. It is not a vacation get-a-away anymore, but our second home. We found Captain Davey's Coffee by accident one day during our Christmas/New Year's holidays 2015/2016 and we are so glad that we did!! Their coffee and latte's are the best!!!... More

We came for ice cream and nothing more. It's a good job because the servings (one scoop) were huge - more a shovel than a scoop. Anyway the flavors were very good - all we needed was warmer weather.
