We shared the tasty fried artichokes at this little cafe, and then I had a special of salmon and Caesar salad and the spouse had the fish tacos. The Caesar was forgettable, but the salmon was fantastic. Cooked perfectly, so it was moist and packed with flavor. Husband loved the tacos, which had huge hunks of fish. It's a small... More

This simple white roadside cafe might surprise you. Great local seafood and fresh artichokes make it worth the trip from anywhere! We stopped by on a Saturday lunchtime and had a short wait. Loved the fried artichokes!! Also enjoyed hearty fish tacos and a large crab/prawn Louie Salad. Super friendly service all around and our drinks were kept full. Lots... More

We joined friends from the Bay Area this morning for breakfast. The owner/chef greeted us jovially and told us there was a 5 minute wait which we should do outside as the cafe has very limited space. He promptly called us in and warmly sat us with menus, coffee promptly brought. 2 of us ordered the artichoke scramble. 1 the... More

My husband and I have been visiting here for several years. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious! The dinners are superb and the prices reflect that. The owner and his staff are very kind, courteous and knowledgeable - they want your experience to be memorable. Your wine glass is never left empty, your ice tea is always full. Everything served is... More

My husband and I ate here a few times during our stay in Moss Landing for a few days last month. I was happy to eat here based on the very good reviews from Trip Advisor. On one day we had planned to eat an early dinner at Phil's Fish House, but due to the very long line at that... More

Located at a challenging intersection off Highway 1 south of Moss Landing proper, this is a great place for some great food. Don't let the building exterior cause you to just do a drive by. Inside is much different with nicely set tables and a very friendly atmosphere. The food is very good, the staff is very friendly and attentive,... More
