This cafe looks very simple from the parking lot but was an absolute joy to discover. You could either sit inside or outside with your feet in the sand. The food was really tasty and the portions were definitely big enough. It was the best start we could imagine for our road trip and we would love to come back.

Great food, fresh and well prepared. Casual, focus on tacos and fish but you can get breakfast, burgers, etc. Great views. Literally on the beach. Super service. Come here every trip if I can. This is one of SB’s gems.

This is a great place to meet a friend for lunch. You can be on the covered patio or in front of it on the sand. We lucked out because the fish of the day was yellowtail and we had great fish tacos that were grilled and you make your own taco with shredded cabbage and various condiments plus I recommend the corn tortillas. Parking can be a little difficult because of nearby City College.

If you are looking for a place to eat with your feet in the sand or on a platform with tables...this is the place! Even tho they were busy they took our names (party of 3.5) and we didn't have to wait too long. The service was pretty good for as busy as they were and all the staff were very pleasant. We started with a bowl of steamed clams which were really tasty and moved onto Caesar salad with chicken (pretty good) and shrimp tacos which were excellent! Great view, outside, casual...a fun lunch!

A cute spot for lunch or dinner. I loved eating dinner with my feet in the sand watching the ocean and having a drink. Service takes a while but good food
