We had the clam strips & french fries and chile relleno plate. The clam strips were very good but not as good the best we've had (Laughing Clam, Grant's Pass, Oregon). The chile relleno was also very good but I'm a chile relleno aficionado and have had the most amazing rellenos. However, I think their Mexican rice is probably the... More

Went in for breakfast. Staff was friendly and the food was very good. Omelets were very good and they have fresh squeezed orange juice.

Cambria seems to have a number of homey, fast and value-priced locations for breakfast. Cambria Cafe definitely fits into that category. The restaurant also serves Mexican food, so I recall Mexican-influenced dishes on the menu. I had what might have been the best biscuits and gravy that I've ever eaten! If we're back, this is where we'll eat all our... More

We ate here during our family vacation to Moro Bay. We came over to Cambria to see the town and shop. We were looking for a place to have lunch and happened to see the TripAdvisor logo in the window so we new this was the place to go. We were not disappointed. The food and service was great. There...

Stopped by after 1 on a weekday and service was excellent. Food was filling and good. We opted for Mexican food and found it to be a good value and choice. Nothing fancy about the place but the lunch was great.

Set into an old downtown shopping strip, it could go unnoticed. There are several eateries just a few steps away, and most look fancier. Ignore all that and give this a try. It's been around for about 80 years, and under this family's ownership for almost 20. The dining area is pleasant, roomy, and clean. The service is quite personable,... More

Following an afternoon watching the elephant seals we decide to get a bite to eat. I had check trip advisors on a couple of places and we settled on Cambria Café. No frills on the décor or seating but that's ok it is very clean. What we got was an amazing meal. Lots of choices on the menu, we op... More

This little cafe isn't all that noticeable when walking by, BUT, the food was surprisingly good! The menu has an amazing variety of things to choose from for such a small place. My friend and I are vegetarians and have been to many Mexican restaurants all over. I have to say that we were surprised at how flavorful and delicious... More

The manager of our motel recommended this Cafe for breakfast. It didn't look like much outside, but we were greeted by the waiter/owner who was very friendly. I ordered the oatmeal. I was surprised by the large size that came to the table. And a large bowl of raisins and a freshly chopped apple. Yum! It was great!
