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.

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
