Great breakfast!

Very warm and friendly space. Relaxed atmosphere. Dog-friendly, which is always nice. Food was excellent and plenty of it! Definitely coming back next time.

This is a good breakfast place in a small shopping area. Food is good basic breakfast diner food. Service is friendly and seems more local than other tourist stops.

This was a simple dinner type breakfast. The staff was friendly and we were quickly seated. My wife Kathy and I split the Chicken Fried Steak. It was good. The scrambled eggs were a little overcooked and they neglected to include the cheese we requested on them. The management should consider that the outdoor patio area could benefit from a... More

Good comfort food, great service, and family friendly. The four times I have visited Cambria I always make it a point to stop there for breakfast.

You know the food I s good when most of the clientele get called out by name upon entering. Omelette special was the way it should be - choke full of spinach bacon and mushrooms. The opportunity to get real grits on the side was perfect.

We have been coming to Cambria & Redwood Cafe for many years. It is tucked in a little strip mall on Main Street. A great find! The food is always great & Rick has a wonderful staff. This year I had breakfast for lunch, scrambled eggs with ham, wheat toast and fruit. My husband had a hamburger. Our lunch was... More

We always eat here when we travel in that direction--the food is great, the people are friendly and it feels like an old fashioned coffee shop that the regulars go to!

Nice little shop tucked away in Cambria. The Eggs Benedict were very well prepared; as was the Eggs Florentine. Orange Juice is overpriced, so it might be advisable to stick with coffee or just water. Although it is advertised as fresh squeezed, it's a small glass and nothing exceptional. All in all, a great breakfast place and I definitely would... More

Having had the chance to live in the Carolinas, the grits was horrible! The pancakes were ok. The hash browns were drenched in oil. However, the service was great. Well the smaller Mexican female server was a very friendly and attentive one. The other sever who is a little heftier was unfriendly and a bit rude actually. I gave this... More

My boyfriend and I have been here 3 times, 2 for breakfast and one for lunch on valentine's day. The food is always delicious, the prices are reasonable, and the service is excellent. The employees are quick to greet you and help you.
