Main street has many options for deli lunches and we chose Moonside Bakery and Café. We ordered the BLT with Cheese and their preparation exceeded our expectations, We sampled several of their homemade cookies and would go back for more.

If you're looking for a great cup of coffee/tea and pastry in Half Moon Bay look no further. Inside and outside seating, depending on the weather and your mood. Drinks served in a mug not a paper cup.
