We've dined her a number of times for breakfast and lunch. Good, consistent food with large portions (the fried artichokes are GREAT!)

The location is very modest. I expected a greasy spoon type establishment. What I got was a gourmet meal comparable to a good Monterey restaurant.

Only open for dinner Fri and Sat nights and have never eaten breakfast or lunch. Dinner is always a treat. The chef owner always has great evening specials. Food and service top notch.

Food was excellent and service too. Just a small place on Hwy 1. Only thing was that the prices where a couple dollars more than listed on the TripAdvisor Menu.

Intrigued by the idea of fried artichokes we pulled up at this roadside cafe off highway one, just south of Moss Landing. Waled in, friendly greeting from the server, cafe was fairly full, most seemed to be regular customers, always a good sign. A portion of artichokes together with an oyster sandwich hit the spot.

The Whole Enchilada was packed, so we drove around and found... More

We stopped for lunch after exploring the Elkhorn Estuary Reserve. The Cajun fish tacos were good, but the California fish sandwich was extraordinary!! It was a little warm inside...a nice problem for us Oregonians to experience in March!
