“Not Up to Par this Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

Not sure what the problem was this trip, but things seemed a bit off during our trip to Bay Cafe this year. My Shrimp Scampi was not good and I have to say of the 27 times I have dined here over the years, I was not pleased. The service however was impeccable and the atmosphere was more beautiful than ever. Same great menu and the prices are $$ , not $$$$, as indicated.

“Great view of the sound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

As I said, great view of the Santa Rosa sound, nice breeze and plenty of sunshine. Lunch for Mother's Day was regular menu. Turkey croissant was very tasty, salad was good. The fresh bread was also very good. Service not so great, but they were busy (not an excuse) and our table' glasses went dry several times!

“Date night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

My Wife and I managed to get away from the kids for a bit thanks to the Wyndham's children's program. We decided to try out bay cafe, and what a gem it is! If you like French style seafood and want to get away for a date night, this is your place! The owner was very friendly! A+

Bay Cafe has been one of our favorites for many, many years.......Best choice for locals during the height of tourist season. We make it a must for out of town guest.
