“Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Coffee is great, wish we had a chance to try their taps for happy hour. Very convenient for guests at the Beach Street Inn.

“Great place for a cheap lunch and excellent ice-cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This place is right opposite the Santa Cruz Broadwalk and offered great value for money. We wanted a quick and cheap place for lunch and this place certainly fits the bill. We ordered the hotdog, Cheese toast and 2 flavours of Penny's ice cream bitter caramel and the verge). They were all good. Happy to recommend for a simple lunch.

“A Picnic Basket Full of Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The Picnic Basket is right across the street from the boardwalk/beach. We had a delicious, reasonably-priced lunch with great service. We ordered a grown-up grilled cheese that was excellent, macaroni and cheese which the kids loved, homemade broccoli and cheddar soup (yum) and a reuben that was piled with corned beef. Food was fresh and sitting outside made it like a picnic without any of the work.
