Three of us stopped in before the place was open. We were invited in to have coffee until they were ready. That was fine because the place is packed with all types of stuff re aviation. Model planes hang from the ceiling. Pictures galore, memorabilia from the owners own collection keep the eyes and mind busy while you wait for... More

My husband and I recently stayed two nights in Half Moon Bay. I had seen other reviews on 3-Zero Cafe and was compelled to go. We weren't disappointed. My husband had French toast with cinnamon and nutmeg while I had eggs benedict. His was better, but there were so many great options on the menu that we looked forward to... More

I'm sure 99% of the people passing by on HWY 1 between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay are not even aware this place exists. And they are missing out on the best Crab Cakes Benedict ever. Service is sometimes spotty, coffee is meh, but the food makes up for it all. Charming airplane inspired decor inside, airport runway outside.... More

This place was recommended by some locals for breakfast. All the dishes were very good. Prices seemed high but quality was worth it. Doesn't look like much from outside, easy to miss, look for airport then building. Decorated with airplane memorabilia and model planes. Fun place for family.

I had blueberry pancakes which were excellent (5 stars). My daughter had French toast, which was average (3 stars). Service is below par (2 stars). Tack on the fact that it's quite expensive and I had no choice but to give it 3 stars.

This is the best breakfast on the coast, hands down. mark, the owner, is always there and provides a certain... Ah, local color, which every restaurant needs. This place is great. Reasonably priced and fantastic.

We went for breakfast and it was great. We had to wait awhile as it was packed but they have coffee for you while you wait. It is located on a small airport. Seems like a local hangout!!

I often forget about this place since it's at the tiny airport here on the coast but I enjoy it when we go. The breakfasts are the best. You'll think you never want to eat again because you're so full from eating the great eggs and hashbrowns, or homemade pancakes with fruit. And it's fun to sit and watch the... More

Huge menu , very friendly, interesting view ( especially if planes are flying in). You won't need lunch after this breakfast!
