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.

This is a busy locals spot so it is best to go during the week or be prepared to wait on a Saturday or Sunday morning. The Pancakes are all delicious and the Eggs Benedict is divine.

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.

We decided to eat here today, and choose to eat outside. It was a perfect day and very pleasant outside. We had on California Hamburger and one Blue Berry pancake. Both were delicious. The service was also excellent.

We've been here a few times, always on a weekend and it's always busy. Service is good and all the breakfasts I've had are delicious. They are very accommodating if there is a problem with your order, which I like. I will be back again.
