3-zero Cafe keeps it simple: good food, great views of planes taking off at the local airport, and walls of aviation history to discover! The menu focuses on breakfast egg dishes and lunchtime burgers and sandwiches, all made with great ingredients. The portions are generous, the service is friendly and the owner/host will keep you smiling!

Location is the HMB Airport and the decor (vintage airplane memorabilia) is a perfect setting. Nothing fancy but you can tell its a popular spot because of all the foot traffic. Be prepared to wait if you arrive during peak times but it will be worth it as everything is fresh & delicious. We haven't ordered anything that we didn't... More

You will not believe the size of the proportions served here! Great food, lots of breakfast dishes, only wish you could get regular toast instead of only English muffins. There will be a wait, but it is worth however long you have to wait.

Nice little stop on coast off Hwy 1 for a quick delicious bite and to watch the planes land and take off. The Crab Frittata and the French Toast are a must. Great for the hole family, friends or by yourself.

A great place for breakfast. Not a big place, but worth waiting as the food is excellent and all the photos and models of old aircraft overlooking a WWII training and fighter base and current active airport is entertaining.

go with your sense of humor intact and your appetite ready for interesting and delicious breakfast fare be it scrambles, omelets or oatmeal. Exceptional breakfast potatoes. Can't beat the view of the runway in action.

Totally worth a stop on the way / great food and service with history and model planes on every wall. Watch the planes take off and land from your seat. Enjoy!

This is a tough review - I'll give it 5 stars for local diner breakfast food and 1 star for waiter/manager? customer service and cleanliness. Lets start with the great stuff. I drive up the coast to meet my friend from over the hill every Sunday here for breakfast. With the closing of the Blue Sky Cafe the 3-Zero Cafe... More

Had a great breakfast here. The service was ok for how busy they were and we were sat outside. However, they did forget some of our order. The food was great and portion sizes were very generous. Not sure how "kid friendly" inside is, but being outside the kids enjoyed watching the planes and a fire truck!

This little place is right at the airport and is decorated with all things related to flying and airplanes. It's a fun, eclectic vibe and the food was delicious. Service is great!
