Stopped along Highway 1, decided on the first place we saw. Originally went inside the regular restaurant and it was too pricy for our blood (I was just craving fish tacos) so we went to the quick serve cafe outside. Fish tacos and fries were...More

The family who runs this place are the most abusive creeps to each other , the staff, and the public. Attention Marin County and/or Stinson Beach Fire Dept: Shut this place down!!

We've been coming to the Parkside Cafe ever since we starting visiting Stinson Beach years ago. We've always enjoyed the good food and pleasant service (if sometimes a bit slow). This time, there was a lack of interest even though there was only one other...More

Everything was delicious. The French toast was decadent, great breakfast burrito, and breakfast platter with bacon and home fries was tasty. Would recommend.

Great location near beach park at Stinson Beach; food average. $24 for fish tacos that were actually a fish dinner with salad plus three corn tortillas. Um, giving me a tortilla to wrap my food in does not a taco make. Photo attached. Had this...More

As residents of Stinson Beach, we love this place. We have breakfasts there regularly (try the Avocado Toast or Huevos Rancheros or Eggs Benedicts) always made from fine local ingredients. The Parkside can get busy and the kitchen backed up but that happens in a...More
