Great selection of FRESH food

The menu here is many pages long, with selections to delight the vegan in your group as well as the ones just wanting good food made from wonderfully fresh ingredients, at a reasonable price. The service was fine today, a weekday a little past the noon rush, and the sandwiches were big, original... read more

My wife and I went to Hill Street because our daughter (who lives in O'side) spoke so highly of it. Sadly I wasn't impressed. Food was OK, service was OK. Maybe I expected more because our daughter raved about it. This place won't be on my "must return" list the next time we visit O'side.

Fairly good brunch menu. Laid back service, breakfast was pretty good but it always feels a little grubby to me...saying that,it cant be too bad as I still go back whenever I visit Oceanside

After spending an afternoon at the beach with our kids, we needed to find some healthy, tasty, vegetarian dinner. Hill Street Cafe proved to be all this and more. We sat in our own room, full of colorful art, and were amazed at the huge menu. The avocado burrito is great, and our kids liked the grilled cheese on multi... More

We stopped BEFORE lunch hour, and still waited almost 30 min for a simple salad and sandwich. Food was fine. Service slow. Simple remedy: hire another wait person! People need jobs, and this restaurant could use more help! Otherwise, it was fine.

This is simply one of the best casual food options for North San Diego County. Hill Street Coffee House is so much more than coffee; they have a HUGE menu with extensive organic and vegetarian options, but don't let the "healthy" facade fool you! In addition to good, wholesome foods - many of which are grown nearby at Hill Street's... More

I live in Oceanside and this is one of my favorite places to go when I want to eat out. I have to admit though, this isn't the best place to come if you are steak and eggs type person (which is why my boyfriend rolls his eyes everytime I suggest eating here.) The avacado tacos are delish!! I really... More

My wife, son, and I were traveling down the coast and were looking for someplace to stop for lunch. Passing through Oceanside, I spotted a yellow house with a "Cafe" sign out front, so I thought let's give this place a shot. Very happy we did! I had a seafood salad which was excellent - very fresh seafood in it.... More
