Great Chili Rellenos

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.

Ate a very tasty breakfast here mid week. Because of the portion size, we didn’t eat lunch. Friendly staff. Would recommend.

Looked cute when we drove by. We had a nice lunch as we sat by the window and watched the foot traffic. I ordered the hot pastrami sandwich and it was good. Husb. Ordered fish and chips. Great service.

We needed to stop and eat lunch before an afternoon tour of the Hearst Castle. We found the Cambria Cafe as one of the listings on TA and gave it a try. We needed to have a quick lunch to make sure we arrived in time for our tour. Our orders were taken promptly and the two of us both... More

In October, we are the chillaquilles for the first time. It was amazing. We couldn't wait to get back. It was even better the second time. You have to try them.

The wife and I were visiting the area and needed to grab a bite for lunch. We had never been to this spot before and decided to give it a try. The wife had the seafood platter ($17+) which she found to be surprisingly good. She said it did not taste like it had been frozen and that it was... More

This restaurant probably serves outstanding Mexican food, but we wanted a traditional American breakfast. We ordered straightforward dishes--eggs, sausage, oatmeal. Everything was prepared to perfection. We ordered a la carte, which was a mistake, because our meal cost more than we intended. We should have looked at the menu more cafefully. That said, I highly recommend this Cafe when you're... More

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.
