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!

We turned up looking for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning having had a recommendation from the hotel staff. The place was quite busy but seating was rapid, the staff were friendly and service was good. The menu isn't full of surprises but it definitely has a slightly greater Hispanic food choice than a standard diner. The food arrived promptly, was well... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, I gave this restaurant my first try and loved it. I stopped in for lunch and ordered a Torta Cubana sandwich. I forgot what all was on it, but everything blended together into an incredible harmony. I would best describe it as a Cuban Sandwich over the top. I returned for a late breakfast the next... More

We spent the morning at San Simeon and were hungry when we left. We were tempted to zip into many restaurants along the way, but saved ourselves for Cambria based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. Very glad we did. Had we not read the reviews, we probably would've skipped the Cambria Cafe because it was empty when we walked in... More
