When you combine really good food, great service, and ample portions, you can create wait lines. However, weekdays is when the locals can go and not have to wait. Our server was Martha and she did a great job. She was cheerful and efficient. Everyone...More

Small, quaint, and always packed. Have never had a meal less than outstanding. They allow my dog in their outside seating and provide a water bowl in the waiting area for dogs. Everyone is very freindly.

Small, casual cafe with inside and patio dining. Service was great, cup of clam chowder was excellent, but would not order the grilled fish taco again. Next time it will be a bowl of chowder only, it was so delicious.

Bright and casual Mexican breakfast spot. Busy even on a Friday mid-morning, it was full inside and outside. Lucked out and got a parking spot. Surfing coverage was playing on the TV. The food is straightforward and filling. We had two tamale and egg plates...More
