I have eaten here before as I have relatives in town. every time I go, I hope they will move the needle to great and five stars, but didn't quite get there this time. Several of our group ordered the fresh Ahi tuna, while I had chicken. They raved about their tuna, while my chicken was dry. Desserts were great.... More

Google Maps pointed us to Bolinas and Coast Café while we were visiting Stinson Beach, so we took a short ride and checked it out. Decidedly casual atmosphere, with surprisingly good food -- looked like lots of locals and tourists alike were there when we were there .. we beat the lunch rush, and by the time we were done,...

food was excellent - had calamari and glass of the house sauvignon blanc. Service great - it feels like you are going back to the 70s...

The food was very good! The staff were very friendly and eager to please. There was live music with a solo singer who played the guitar. I had apple pie for desert and it was better than any I've ever eaten in 5 star restaurant!

Oh dear, I think I have just reviewed this place already. Never mind, it deserves all the praise on offer. Best oysters on the whole of our Highway 1 drive and staff that could have been more friendly and courteous. Thank you! Just wish I could be back tomorrow.....

Healthy, ample portions of good food in a family-friendly atmosphere. Visited on a Sunday and service seemed overwhelmed by the crowd, but cheerful nonetheless. Nice variety of seating options: on the porch outside, in the side yard, under an awning, or inside. Enjoyable photo art on the wall, and surf boards on the ceiling. Vegan soup, brunch food and pie... More

The brunch food was really quite good. Service was great. The location is fantastic in downtown Bolinas. It's definitely hectic on the weekends. We were cautious because of occasional mixed reviews but found it definitely worth the visit. Prices were very reasonable.
