We've been going to the Redwood cafe for over 10 years. The staff is always friendly and the food is consistently good. The blueberry pancakes are my favorite :) my husband likes the breakfast skillets. The California Benedict (avocado and artichokes) is really good when you want to splurge. Indoor and patio seating available, if you have a dog with... More

We showed up around 8am, and the place was decently crowded. We were greeted and seated right away. The gentleman that seated us brought out a bowl of water for our pup, and a small treat. The waitress gave our dog a small piece of bacon. They both asked if it was ok before they gave our pooch the treats... More

Very good food, service and atmosphere. What more can you ask for? We were greeted warmly and coffee was served as we sat down. We ordered a mushroom and cheddar cheese omelet with fruit instead of hash browns and Eggs Benedict. Both of the entrees were perfect. There was a $1.75 up charge for the fruit which was fine when...

Try the blueberry pancakes special. The blueberries are sweet enough that you can skip the syrup. This place is an interesting mix of local folk and visitors and everyone will feel welcome. Also, well behaved dogs are welcome to join their humans outside on the patio.

We went here for breakfast based on a recommendation in the Auto Club tour book. The food was okay and the Mimosa's were great but the restaurant was very cold and the atmosphere was dismal. The day we were there it was quiet with few patrons. While I think they might be going for the rustic look it seemed more... More

Very Solid Breakfast. Would be a 4.5 if there was better value here. It is not cheap. but very solid for a good morning breakfast. I had the spinach and Wife had the eggs,hash browns and bacon. Daughter had the french toast. We all loved the food and the service was solid too. Again the only drawback was the price.... More

This is the place for a great breakfast which is served until they close at 2 in the afternoon. Wide variety of choices and the omelets are so filling I can only eat half. If you like biscuits you can't beat theirs. We always eat breakfast here but tried the lunch menu for the first time and we weren't disappointed.... More

Warm and inviting interior, great and friendly owner (Rick) and staff, and well cooked, well priced food. Totally dependable and much recommended by loyal locals. Not crowded or noisy, just bustling and in warmer weather, the flower bedecked patio is lovely, despite overlooking the parking area. Not open for dinner.

We were looking for lunch in Cambria and the first places we checked out were too busy or more than we wanted to spend for lunch (in the $12-15 range). We found the Redwood Cafe and were we glad. I had a chicken cilantro soup and 1/2 tuna sandwich; husband had a burger with black beans and cheese. The food... More

We really enjoyed our breakfast here, lovely house omelettes and endless coffee, juice. The server was great and although busy took time to make us feel welcome, really enjoyed it and the town is lovely too.
