This place can get very busy with tourists in the summer. My complaint is not the food. The salsa omelette is tasty, though the toast seldom is warm. The problem is that the staff become overwhelmed by the crowds and service becomes confused, at best. Tables and floors are not as clean as they could be. Requests for drink refills... More

We had the fish tacos and a Caprese Panini. We recommend getting your fish tacos at a real Taqueria. Not sure what the Panini was about because it wasn't flat. Just a warmed up baguette. Nothing really there to make us want to return.

Every time we visit our friends in Pacifica we also have to visit High Tide for breakfast! The food is delicious and the service is great. Everyone that we have dealt with there is friendly and more than happy to make us feel really welcome. We always leave feeling like we are one of the locals! I always have poached... More

very good food, price kept low by self-service - you order and pay up front at the counter, then they bring you the food. the salads are monstrous and fabulous!

I love crepes and this way a great mix of French/California cuisine. You order and then sit down. They bring it to you when they are ready. Everything we had here was wonderful! The fish tacos were great as well as the savory crepes. Both came with a side salad. Obviously the sweet crepes were excellent!

We stayed at a nearby hotel and slept in late. We didn't want to bother with a stuffy high priced brunch restaurant, so when we saw that there was a Crepery nearby we went for it. It was perfect, even on a busy Sunday morning we got our order placed quickly, and the food was also quick to our table.... More

It's not much to look at, as it is your typical "mall" restaurant. The food is good, serving mostly sandwiches and pancakes. Prices are fair (7$ for a banana & nutella crepe), but coffee and tea were a little high at 2.50$ for a regular cup. Restaurant was not dirty but was not the cleanest. Service was good.

It is a bit hard to characterize the genre of the fare served here. The headline creations are indeed made with crepes, with ingredients suggesting food of French origin, but when served (as is standard here) with a side of home fries (or french fries, upon request), the atmosphere becomes that of a sandwich shop. Overall, this is an upscale... More

We researched restaurants in Pacifica before our trip and High Tide was rated #1. Biggest and tastiest Tuna Melt I've ever had and my husband loved the Fish & Chips. Service was amazing - they were "on it"! We wen't back the next morning for breakfast!!

Used to be our go to spot for breakfast/brunch, but the last two times we were there, the food was terrible, tasteless and soaked in oil. The servers forgot about us as soon as the food came out, we had to go and get our own water, utensils, and bring back dirty dishes because we did not want to have... More
