My friend and I went on a walk along the beach path and stopped in for lunch at the Pixie Deli. The prices are reasonable and the food very good. I had the tuna wrap with wasabi mayo...yum! My friend had the calamari sandwich. Other than it taking a while for my friends lunch to come up....it was a good... More

After a walk at Seacliff State Beach, lunch at the Pixie Deli is a fine way to relax. Nate, the very friendly owner, serves up hearty,made-to-order hot and cold sandwiches. It's a take-a-number, order at the counter joint with an adjacent, ocean-view dog-friendly patio.

Great little deli steps from the motel and the beach. Serve a variety of dishes from snacks to filling meals. I only wish they were open later.

Great location on Rio Del Mar beach. Friendly family staff. Ordered the pesto chicken sandwich. It was average at best. Too much bread, not enough pesto. Biggest complaint is the $1 charge to refill a cup of coffee. It was just a regular cup of coffee.

After a day at the beach, we were tired and hungry. We mixed and matched some daily specials to feed our family of four for about $35 the food was good and so was the service.

We opted for Pixie Deli for breakfast. My son-in-law wanted to try their breakfast burritos. They were huge! I had chorizo, cheese and spinach. It was quite tasty, but twice what I could eat. We had no trouble locating an outside table. Looks like parking could be bit of an issue on a busy beach day, but this restaurant is... More

We spent the morning walking the beach and ended up with a tasty lunch / beer at the deli. Can see the ocean, watch the people and enjoy the sun...at least that's what we did!

We love stopping off here for deli food, snacks, drinks, or ice cream. It is across from Rio Del Mar Beach. It is not fancy, but very casual and somewhat Bohemian. Fits the beach atmosphere. Nice outdoor seating as well.

I stopped by this nice little place on my first night in the Santa Cruz area. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found (sandwiches, burritos, breakfast and beer) I look forward to spending the next two months eating lunch at the beach. Very friendly and fun atmosphere.

This is a great little place right across from Rio Del Mar . You can get the food to go and cross the street for a beach picnic. We love their grilled chicken fajita burritos.The service is very friendly, dogs are welcome at the outside tables, and it's just a fun, funky, come as you are kind of place.
