Good food and a beautiful view. I like to sit and watch the kayakers and enjoy some local music. Very restful.

Great coffee and alfresco seating right by the water. Impromptu musical entertainment; great fun. Chilled and laid back vibe with friendly staff and customers. Good place to just hang out.

Really impressed by this small cafe in Jenner located on the bank of the Russian River. We visited Weds lunchtime and enjoyed, Chowder, Blueberry Scone, Strawberry & Choc Chip Muffin and freshly made Coffees. The Chowder which was clearly home made was fantastic. Likewise the home made bakery items. Grab a Picnic Table at the back of the Cafe and... More

A waitress at River A waitress recommended Cafe Aquatica for breakfast and she was right on. There was a line of locals waiting for their coffee (it's a tiny place) so we joined in. The coffee was worth waiting for and our poached eggs perfectly cooked and served on a house made roll with fresh greens. Superb! Fresh pastries were... More

Cafe by the coast, fresh food and delightful coffee is not to be the missed. Outdoor seating by the water, you can taste the salt air - loved the guitar player while watching a group of kayakers... Try the Mexican mocha. Yum!! Also the lox - super yum!! Staff are friendly, so happy we found this place.

Drove a ways to get crab meat sandwiches from Cafe Aquatica, but no crabmeat this time. So we ordered an egg salad sandwich and a smoked salmon sandwich, both served on focaccia bread. Two big mistakes. This place found a way to make egg salad ABSOLUTELY TASTELESS: no onion, no seasoning, no pickle, no nothing. And the sandwich was impossible... More

Just a little North of Bodega Bay is Jenner, and this is the spot in Jenner. Clam Chowder, sandwiches and some of the best coffee you will ever have. Outside seating where the Russian River meets the sea. Outstanding

Before heading north on Highway 1 from Bodega Bay, I did a quick Trip Advisor search to find a lunch stop in Jenner. Cafe Aquatica came up as reasonably priced and great reviews. When I arrived, we discovered that parking was going to be a challenge. There are not many spots and the streets were packed with Holiday travelers. After... More
