Good home cooking.

Good fish dishes and friendly staff. The bar is noisy and disturbing. I didn't like the bread. Next time I'll try something else.

Food was good and the waitress was very friendly. Would go back. Bacon was especially good and the scrambled eggs were just right.

My wife and I had Bloody Mary's and omelettes for breakfast. Fantastic. I asked the bartender how she made the Bloody Marys. She showed us. All homemade, no mix. This was a great for breakfast to start our day.

I was in Half Moon Bay for business and the local hotel only had a coffee bar for breakfast. Breakfast is an important meal for me and this has a robust menu of eggs, oatmeal, pancakes and omelets.
