Good little local diner!

If you are looking for fine dining, this is NOT the place for you. If you are looking for a place 'locals' eat at and 'home cooking' it will fit the bill! Only had breakfast here and it was good. Hearty and filling.

A good variety of omelettes, but both of ours plus two at the table next to us were way overcooked and as flat as a pancake. Omelettes start at $9.95 and go up to about $15. Toast was cold, so butter would not even melt. I saw some good sounding things on the menu for lunch, but we will not... More

After having lunch I am of the opinion the ratings were a little misleading. The atmosphere was typical diner, nothing special and not a big deal. The kitchen could use better ventilation as the smell of fried foods permeates the air. My clothing now does as well. The service was fast and friendly. The portions were large and we'll presented.... More

After a whale watching cruise out of Moss Landing, we were looking for restaurant recommendations. The naturalist on our whale watching cruise gave a few suggestions and then mentioned Moss Landing Cafe and raved about both the food and how friendly the folks are. We decided to give it a try and are very glad we did! This is a... More

When the Chef is also the the owner the positive difference becomes obvious. It is smaller and more friendlier in atmosphere. Great wine choices, deserts, salads, starters.... and everything else... If something of your liking is not on the menu? Then simply ask Chef/Owner Mark and he'll arrange something for you... If you are in the area, you've got to... More

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.
