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.

The food is absolutely delicious. I recommend the fish and chips! Both times my boyfriend and I visited during our trip, we sat outside (first in front, the second time in back). Be prepared for very friendly local dogs to wander by as you're eating if you're seated out front. :) Wonderful service. Very attentive wait staff. Highly recommended all-around!

After hiking a visit to the Duxbury Reef, we had a nice light lunch here. The clam chowder was very good, as were the oysters. The staff was friendly. There is seating indoors and out – we took an indoor table because it was a bit cool outside. The atmosphere is rustic, appropriate for this village on the lagoon. The... More

Used to really love this place, but now the menu mix is only ok, not wonderful like it used to be. If your the only nice Retaraunt in town, maybe you don't have to try as hard. I'm hoping they will pick up the pace, offer a more varied menu and get back on track. Our group mainly had hamburgers,... More

Nice little restaurant that has both indoor and outdoor seating. Not much of an atmosphere but the service and food was very good. For a quiet looking place, it had a very interesting menu. I had the chili and cheese tamale that was excellent. They leaned toward seafood dishes but also had good choices for vegetarians. I would definitely stop... More

Bolinas is a small and laidback town on the shores of the ocean.This cafe is very much in the same idiom .We asked the waitress/manageress? If we could eat outside (total 3 people in the cafe)..she just replied negatively. Food was nothing special.
