We ate breakfast here every morning of our vacation and it was wonderful! The omelets were the best. Service was great and the view was amazing if you ate on their outside deck. We all enjoyed it.

Started coming here long time ago when there was only one and now there are. Excellent food from the peanuts when you come in to ice cold beer. Cool atmosphere.

We stop by for lunch. The onion rings are great. The food was very good. I had the Sonoma grilled chicken sandwich. It was very juicy. Nice view of ocean, while you eating. Will definitely go back if in the area.

We had a grillled onion burger & a continental burger platter. Both were cooked as ordered (what a concept). The fries and coleslaw were good also. Reasonably priced on the beach.
