I've been twice this month. Had an awesome 1/2 tuna fish sandwich and salad! Huge sandwich and delicious. Went back again and ordered 1/2 cashew chicken sandwich with a side salad. Awesome!!! I had cantaloupe and other fruit with my meal! Service was awesome! Iced tea was refreshed often! Great service!!

We come here for breakfast about once a month, sometimes lunch. The food is always good and brought out promptly. The homemade items really make this place special. The jams and sauces are homemade. I usually get the breakfast tacos, the rest of my family gets one of the eggs Benedict. I don't think there is anything "not good" on... More

Blackboard Bistro is a great place to have breakfast, brunch or lunch. The menu is pretty standard american cafe food. The staff is super friendly. The food is great and consistently on point. I highly recommend Blackboard Bistro.

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
