Very friendly atmosphere. Not sure if this is a Mexican restaurant or a cafe. The menu is all over the globe. The food looked beautiful, but lacked flavor.

Stopped off here to have lunch, while visiting Cambria. Cute little Mexican themed restaurant with a variety of food...from omlettes, to Mexican, to salads, etc. Simple but clean with a friendly staff. I tried the Cuban Torta and it was delicious. My friend had an enchilada plate with rice and beans and liked it as well. Nice spot to sit... More

Looking for a nice sit down breakfast while we strolled around Cambria. This place fit the bill perfectly. Quite possible the best omelet, certainly the best Denver omelet I've ever had. Wait staff was very friendly as well. Def worth the money and the time to check out this little place.

I had the pork tamales with rice and beans and my wife had the enchiladas. The price was reasonable considering the area and the food did seem to me "homemade" and tasted great. The service was great and they were friendly. We did not know they closed at 3pm that day and went in at 245. The gave us great... More

We ended up here after reading the reviews. I want to note, we did something I try not to do and that is go in before closing. They closed at 3pm and we sat down at 2:30pm. Worth mentioning. I will also mention though that another table walked in way after us so I felt a little better ha ha... More

I was driving from Paso Robles to Monterey and decided to stop in Cambria for breakfast. By chance I ended up in the Cambria Cafe and I'm glad that I found it. This is an older cafe, but spotlessly clean, which I appreciate. I had the Chili Verde Omelette and it was outstanding. Loaded with rich, moist chunks of pork... More

My wife and I came here for lunch while we were staying in Cambria. I was glad that we chose to come here. When we got there about 1/2 of the people were regular customers and I can see why they come here. The owner/waiter was outgoing and friendly. The cafe was very clean and they cleaned the tables quickly... More

We dropped in on the cafe on a trip to the elephant seals. The menu is American with a Mexican slant. Our dishes were fine but not exceptional. My carne asada taco excellent. Service was excellent also.
