We have not eaten breakfast here but the menu looks great! Instead we opted for lunch. We shared a bowl of chicken tortilla soup and a huge avocado club sandwich and serving of fries. Very filling for the two of us and very tasty. The prices were very good. A definite place to add to our list when we visit... More

My blueberry pancakes were so tough I actually had to cut them with a fork and knife.The blueberries were rubbery, dried out. Forget about real maple syrup or butter. The typical American breakfast of eggs, bacon, etc. was greasy. I will say the coffee was good. There are better breakfast places in town. The elderly couple next to us thought... More

We had breakfast at the Redwood Cafe and it was delicious! Offering pancakes, bacon, eggs, steel cut oatmeal (not that instant stuff!), the cook at the Redwood Cafe sure knows how to make the perfect breakfast. My eggs, hash browns and bacon were prepared exactly as I requested. A friend had the blueberry pancakes, my spouse had the eggs Florentine... More

Service was quick and friendly, the prices are decent. The food is simply average (scrambled eggs with havarti wasn't a "soft" scrambled as described, IMO, and the fruit was swimming in juices).

Was traveling around California for 2 weeks, and we would say that this was our most enjoyable breakfast on the trip. Liked the small place, the personable service and the quality of the breakfast. Aclear winner for us.

After reading a lot of reviews and not wanting to spend 15 dollars on an omelette we decided to try this place. So glad we did. Greeted by friendly staff. Ordered the blueberry pancakes per reviews and the benedict special. Came quickly and both were flavorful and fantastic. Tons of berries! Good coffee too.

We found this place on Trip Advisor. The place is cozy, adequate seating, good portions of food, and good prices. We had their blueberry pancakes, they were huge! Our server was friendly, would not hesitate to go there again for a meal. Our family was happy and satisfied. Highly recommend this place!

We were walking around Cambria and decided to have lunch at the Redwood. We had a basic burger and a BLT. The food was very good and so was the service. The waitress came back many times for coffee refills. It was nice to sit outside in the sunshine and the inside has a funky dinner feel. They are dog... More
