Cute place, creative breakfast options

Nice selection of baked goods and creative options for breakfast, using local and organic products. Plenty of seating options--inside, outside or in a small courtyard area. Only complaint, no one can seem to make a good cappuccino in the USA. Skip that and look elsewhere if that's what you're... read more

We stopped in Half Moon Bay just to look around for a short while and came across this bakery. We bought a really lovely fruit tart to take to friends we were visiting. We had it for supper and it had a really nice texture. We also bought a glass Christmas decoration (our only one) for our camper which was... More

A great pizza!! Tender, thin crust and served piping hot. I ordered the Napoli and asked them to add some grilled chicken. Ate half there and took the rest back to the hotel for dinner.

Just browsing stores in one of my favorite places on earth, my daughter and I responded to my hunger pains and walked in for lunch. It's a quaint little place with a nice menu for sandwiches and lots of yummy looking goodies in the bakery counter windows. So we ordered and enjoyed our food. There is a large back area... More

This is a real find along the Main street of Half Moon Bay. The Greek pizza was the best I've had. Then we had a raisin bear claw and apricot triangles which were so delicious.

Let me start by saying that I normally don't write negative reviews. I'm aware of the fact that 99.9% of other patrons could have had a 5 star experience here & that I represent the .1%. But, if I feel like I wasted my time & money, I'm going to say something. My wife & I stopped here for an... More

This was one of our last stops before we left Half Moon Bay. We had to take home the fresh bread made daily and the cinnamon crisps. Great place for coffee and a fresh pastry. Every time we stood in line there was a local resident standing next to us for the fresh bread. Enjoy!

This is a no-frills good eats breakfast joint in town. Been here more than once and I will continue to have breakfast there whenever I am in town.

We have come here three times for breakfast now because we usually head over to the beach after to walk our dogs. The first time the food was pretty good, but wasn't terribly hot by the time we got it. Essentially, the way this place works is you step up to the bakery/food service counter and order from the specials/menu.... More

we stopped in because we were told they had the best cookies and such. They were very good. A very busy place to visit. I would probably try another bakery if you don't want to wait.
