The food is outstanding. This is a funky little place off of 7th avenue. Very casual but do not let this fool you. Imaginative sandwiches made from locally sourced ingredients. I enjoyed a California breakfast scramble on a croissant with home fires wich was delicious, the serving was so big I saved half for the next day. Good coffee and... More

Off the beaten path and you definitely need GPS if you're a tourist. About 3-4 miles from downtown and the beach but worth the trip. We stopped in about 10am on a Monday and still had to wait about 10 minutes to get in. But the service was excellent. This place is known for its range of egg benedicts and... More

My family stopped here for breakfast during summer vacation from Texas on June 24th and returned again the next day it was so good. Possibly one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. I went here based on trip advisor reviews and it was better than expected. Should be ranked #1. Everyday there is a special. I had banana pancakes... More

Went here for lunch. We had a pitcher of beer and fish and chips. Service was excellent. Food was very good. Best fish and chips we have had in Santa Cruz. Relaxing atmosphere on the deck watching the boats come in and out. Great atmosphere for beach dining.

This is a laid back restaurant in the Twin Lakes area. A limited menu with fresh ingredients, prompt and friendly service. Everything was tasty. It can get crowded but has a nice atmosphere

My boyfriend and I were visiting friends who live in Santa Cruz and they suggested breakfast at Harbor Cafe. Everything was delicious and the drinks are great. Fun spot to hang with friends.

I ate here with my friends on Saturday morning. There is free coffee while you wait, along with a bar to make lovely post-hangover creations. We waited about 20 minutes to get a table outside for 10 people. We had the nicest waiter and waitress that I have ever encountered in a restaurant. My friends asked for 'like 1000 coffees'... More
