Good Morning Star Shine, the Earth Says Hello. This little hole in the wall or rather, on the river is the best place to start your day in Jenner (by the Sea). We had good coffee, interesting muffins and delicious avocado toast here on a damp late summer morning after sleeping at a local Inn. Be open to adventures, remember... More

Quaint little shop with great coffee and excellent service! Limited parking, but terrific place to stop off during a drive, enjoy the Russian River and some good nibbles.

Enjoyed a lunch sandwich overlooking the river. This place is not flash and the menu is fairly limited but what we had was excellent; chicken, salmon sandwich and a savoury muffin. It was busy when we arrived; but the food came fairly promptly and was made to order

We stopped at Cafe Aquatica one day for lunch and the next for coffee. Both were very good. Lunch sandwiches and chowder were tasty. If weather allows, it is hard to beat a seat outside overlooking the river. Coffee was also good - and the sugar cookie with ginger was delicious.

We were just able to stop in on our way out of town. I wish we would have come here the first day! Freshly brewed coffee and the freshest loose tea selection. Fresh baked pastries, YUM!

For a quick coffee, baked good, or lunch, I recommend stopping here. The view when sitting outside while eating is so beautiful. The clam chowder is worth the stop alone.

What an amazing place, sitting outside on a Sunday late morning enjoying a very very good coffee and excellent homemade macaroon drizzled with chocolate, listening to a guy playing some lovely smooth jazz music, doesn't get any better really!!!!!

The best thing here is their hot water poured through the coffee grinds coffee. Only one egg dish available. Impossible to cut the underlying flat bread with the cheap plastic knife, only utensil available. Very slow service, took about twenty minutes for my poached eggs, which are only available by way of their outside window, so you have to stand... More

Lovely people in a lovely place providing good quality refreshments. So pleased that we stopped here on our journey along the the Pacific Coast. Wooden double seats on the grass beside the café looking out at the blue blue sea. The café is a small wooden building, maybe a little ramshackle but so wonderfully unique. The coffees, muffin and biscuits... More

Had a nice lunch at Cafe Aquatica while driving down the coast. Sandwiches come on delicious ciabatta bread with a very nicely sized salad on the side. Only request would be to offer dressing on the salad (apologized if I missed it!)
