Small town greatness

Here's one to be sure and check out. Had the pork verde omelet and it was sumptious. Service was prompt and served with a smile. Be sure to stop by this obviously popular little spot as customers were coming in all day.

We had breakfast at the Cambria Cafe on July 6th. We'd gotten recommendations for fancier places the night before but when we walked by them they didn't appeal. Very homogenous. The Cambria Cafe, however, was filled with a diverse bunch of locals so we decided on it. Very glad we did. Best chilaquilis I've had outside of Baja. The chili... More

What an awesome find. Funky little cafe obviously favored by the locals. We did not see another obvious tourist in the place, everyone knew each other by name. They have a table in the back reserved for veteran's that had a slowly revolving group while we sat and ate a MARVELOUS breakfast. The chile verde was amazing.

I'm sorry but don't see what the reviews were talking about. The service was slow my hash browns were burnt. My sourdough toast was cold and not buttered. I had to ask for butter. Never had dry toast except when. Home ill. I had to ask for coffee refills. My husband's hash browns were burnt as well. Eleven dollars a... More

We ended up at Cambria Cafe for breakfast and loved it because it had a big breakfast menu with lots of choices, and never ending diet cokes! My friend ordered biscuits and gravy, which were just OK (but we're from the south, so we're used to southern style dishes) and I ordered the huevos rancheros, which were delicious and authentic....

Omelette was good spinach,mushrooms and cheese. My hashbrowns were burnt and sour dough bread was over toasted and unbuttered. My husband had the sausage and cheese omelette. With all the great reviews I expected better and 40 breakfast bill? Not worth it try a better restaurant ask the locals advice. We were fooled by reviews. I don't mind paying for... More

We were in the middle of Cambria, exploring the local shops when the hunger bug bit. I wanted a quick, inexpensive lunch in an uncrowded restaurant. I turned around and there was the Cambria Café. After a quick T A check , in we went. It's a small café with about ten or twelve tables. I ordered the fish and... More

This is a great place, clean; friendly staff; food tastes like it's made in a family kitchen, lots of TLC, authentic Mexican, not like your run-of-the-mill restaurant. Every time we come, we're never disappointed.
