We finally made out three visit minimum in order to post this review. First was with our vegan son and wife for brunch; then my wife and I got breakfast and a late lunch. Parking can be a problem. There is a very small spot behind the restaurant or on 101. Don't park on the south-side of the... read more

Great food, service and atmosphere. Our first time and we will be back to try dinner. We were attracted to the old yellow Victorian house. Glad we took the chance and stopped in.

Had a lovely time at Hill Street Cafe. Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and great coffee. Love that all the coffee cups are different.

I highly recommend this place, we dropped in based on a local suggestion and it was the best decision. It was like walking in to a friends house, so welcoming and friendly. Menu was extensive, food beautifully prepared and fresh. Truly believe people make a place and these were the most welcoming bunch of faces we met during our entire... More

We stayed at a friends place in Oceanside and found this cafe with nice vegan options. We had those amazing fresh pressed juices and a tofu teriyaki sandwich which was awesome. Totally recommend it!

The trip was hectic & the hotel was surrounded by fast-food. I looked on my cell for a veg restaurant (figuring it would be safe) & called Hill St. Cafe to carry-out. The person who answered the phone was friendly & told me know that they customize the preparation of the food (plus, it's not strictly veg). The food was... More

They have a variety of choices but I am not so happy with the food I ate. I ordered the southern fried chicken and I got breaded piece of chicken . Hard and barely seasoned. I really like the place, historic and has warm friendly atmosphere and they have good art collection.

A wonderful place to sit and relax over a glass of ice tea (or a beer) - had a great grilled veggie sandwich and a bowl of vegan soup - but the table next to me had lots of meat - so something for everyone!
