Good breakfast

Cycled into Cambria looking for someplace for breakfast. I asked a couple of people and they both recommend Creekside. The service was good, the food good, the coffee was not colored water. I would have given this place 5 stars but they are a little pricey but not to bad. Not like the thieves in... read more

Great Breakfast! I love the French toast and the fruit cup that comes with breakfast is fresh cut. Most restaurants serve soggy fruit cups not Creekside! Love the patio on a nice day. ❤️

The outside patio was very relaxing. The restaurant seems to not hire enough staff. My husband ordered chicken fried steak and eggs. He asked for extra gravy and never got it. The bacon was very good thick and crispy. I had the pancakes they were skimpy on the syrup. I don't understand summer is tourist season these establishments are closed... More

I always trust the locals for the best eateries and have yet to be disappointed, so this time? My vacation landlord suggested this cafe with a patio outside for breakfast. She was 100% correct in that the food was delicious (they make their own muffins) and the service was outstanding. The patio is small but intimate and quite comfortable with... More

We saw Creekside Gardens featured in a national magazine and wanted to give it a try. Boy, were we glad we did! This is a delightful little place and features a cozy inside eating area as well as a large patio area. Since we happened to be dining on a cloudy, somewhat chilly morning, we chose to eat inside. There... More

Freshly prepared food executed well. The staff is very friendly and it is a great value for anywhere. It is a little hidden off main street in a lower than street level shopping center. Great kids menu too! They are a breakfast and lunch place.

Nice patio, service was slow had to ask for coffee refill. My husband asked for extra gravy on chicken fried steak never got it. The food was good seems to me need extra help for summer tourist crowed. 4.95 for a sausage on the side seems ridiculous. This will keep people from being return customer.

The most insanely fantastic french toast - ever. My favorite breakfast food. I love it so much, I recreated it at home. It's still better at Creekside Gardens. We've been coming to Cambria for 35 years -- usually once per quarter. Creekside Gardens is quaint and the food is delicious. Never had anything less than solid good food here.

I stopped here for breakfast as we drove up the coast. I am surprised by the positive reviews. I like the whole in the wall, comfort food vibe they are going for. We sat outside which was nice. Service was friendly by unbelievably slow. Food was bad. We ordered blueberry pancakes, sausage gravy and biscuits, scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon.... More
