Had the Rosie breakfast sandwich and an iced coffee with almond milk. Had the breakfast sandwich on an everything bagel. Exceptional balance of flavors - sausage, hard fried egg, mild green chiles, pepper jack cheese, red onion. Quick service - great flavors.

I drink decaf coffee and the coffee was always hot and fresh! After the first purchase of bagels the staff remembered how my grandson liked his prepared - now that is service!

Decent food with outdoor seating. I arrived early as they opened and got one of the few outdoor tables with view of the ocean. Food is good, but a bit pricey. I got what was basically an eggs ranchero with a a flavorful green sauce on one side and an equally savory red sauce on the other. The breakfast potatoes... More

On our search for California piers I decided to look to see if there were any nearby places that had been featured on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" and one was close by. We found a seat right away in the casual cafe. I had a tasty bowl of tomato basil soup served with a delicious piece of crusty caprese. My... More

A great local spot that was featured on Dine-ins, Drive-ins and Dives. They serve breakfast and lunch now. (both excellent) They have a diverse menu, with lots of items. The "local" way to order, is pick from their whiteboard of specials. There are tables inside and outside, but you are not able to drink at the outside tables.

A simple chicken sandwich to go was soggie with thin dry chicken. A salad out of a bag, no thought. What happened to North End?

This was one of those many super happy mornings when you arise early so you park your vehicle at 7:00 a.m. (street metered parking free until 8:00 a.m.) and then walk down to the Strand. Be sure to eat your edibles 33 minutes before arriving :-) As you walk along the strand hitting your pipe here and there, your senses... More

We stayed at the Sea View Inn and enjoyed coffee and breakfast at the North Beach Cafe. Not because of the convenience, but because the food is amazing and the staff very attentive. Egg sandwiches and pancakes are terrific. Great to see a small restaurant like this doing so well.

Eating at this place is a must. The breakfast / brunch meals are among my favorites. It's a short walk from the beach, so a nice walk after an incredible meal is always possible.
