Our visit to Cambria

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... read 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.

You know you're in the right place when you see the "regulars" of the town on a Sunday morning. This food was very tasty, we could tell this place has a history and the decor is interesting (antiques). Rick (the manager) was very welcoming too. We went here two days in a row while staying in Cambria.

Had breakfast here, fresh blueberry pancakes for my husband, cheese and green chili omelet, with a side of biscuit and gravy. Some of the best gravy on my biscuit ever, pancakes loaded with blueberries. Large and filling breakfast at a fair price. Only open for breakfast and lunch, inside and outside dining. Very friendly and fast service, don't expect fancy,... More

The restaurant at our hotel in San Simeon was full, so we headed to Cambria for breakfast. Took a bit to navigate, but ended up at the Redwood Cafe. Wow, great place. We had a lovely table out front, with fast friendly service and great food. They had some specials on the board which some of us had. I did... More

Typical breakfast joint. Food was good, nothing special but not bad either. It was just a typical place. Don't go with high expectations and you won't be disappointed. Nice people. But everyone in Cambria is nice.
