We had breakfast here this week - I had the trio of avocado toast which was quite good but the poached eggs my husband had were sitting in a pool of water. Compared to places to get breakfast out in Monterey this fell short

Enjoy our gourmet Monterey Beach restaurant with your own "window on the bay". For a truly unique dining experience, escape to the Cafe Beach Restaurant; a remote, romantic retreat so serene that the hypnotic sounds of the pounding surf can only be broken by the clink of toasting glasses and a feast of fresh seasonal dishes are served. Enter the dining room, where windows frame a living landscape of unspoiled beaches.
