Blackboard Bistro is a great place to have breakfast, brunch or lunch. The menu is pretty standard american cafe food. The staff is super friendly. The food is great and consistently on point. I highly recommend Blackboard Bistro.

This is a family owned restaurant with a friendly wait staff a bit away for the touristy Main Street traffic. Local flock here for a good meal at a decent price. It's got excellent parking, good access from the PCH and close enough to the beach. NIce menu that should satisfy the hungry traveller.

Maybe we ordered the wrong items but it seemed very average to us. "Just the way it used to be" burger and spinach omelet were filling but not memorable.

Blackboard Bistro is an indoor outdoor restaurant serving locals who walk, ride or drive in. It has a friendly atmosphere and we really enjoy dining there. We eat there 2-3 times a month. They are open breakfast and lunch only

Blackboard Bistro offers fresh food made from scratch daily. My favorite is their wonderful breakfasts. I love the french toast. My husband loves the pancakes. The lunch menu features over 20 sandwiches, as well as juicy burgers and fresh salads.
