A small place, nothing fancy, and I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in the door. Vets in the back, a table of locals in front of me, and returning tourists to my right. Nicely done omelette, no up charge for an English Muffin, choice of hash brown or country potato, and a nice cup of coffee. I left... More

Stumbled upon Cambria Café quite by accident. Was looking for a good breakfast site after shopping downtown in Cambria. Initially had some reservations about the place as the restaurant is listed as having a "Mexican/American" menu. My experience in the past with restaurants that lists 2 or 3 different ethnic origins for their food is that generally they don't do... More

The service and food was excellent! They serve breakfast all day! The blueberry pancakes were so yummy and so full of fresh large blueberries! One is missing a delightful experience if you do not make a point to dine here! The café was exceptionally clean ( including restrooms). Rafael was a sincere and happy waiter! We dined here 3 days...

Typical is good. It means great, slightly dated décor, friendly, efficient service and tasty, wholesome, plentiful and well-priced food. We’ll stop by again.

After riding through Cambria I found this cafe. Very friendly staff. An extensive menu. I only had a burger bet it was good. If I'm traveling through there again I will stop in.

I loved this place. I had the chiliquiles for two breakfasts, and an omelet for the third one. Spouse had omelets mostly and everything tasted delicious. It wasn't all done up for cutesy appeal to tourists ... basic booths and tables, and friendly staff. Prices were reasonable especially given Cambria standards.

They serve a good breakfast here and the vegetarian burger for lunch was very good and all food is inexpensive. Service is prompt, Rafael and his charming sister seem to be the only servers here but that does not make for a long wait time. Not open for dinner and they serve a Mexican menu too.

We just wanted a quick breakfast and this place did not disappoint. Not much to say, just a basic little breakfast place, but the food came quickly, was really good and the orange juice was fresh squeezed! Glad we went here.

We called here for breakfast on a journey from San Luis Obispo to San Fancisco. Cambria is a lovely little town with a very homely feel. The cafe serves good home cooking, and we all enjoyed the breakfast which came in good sized portions. Much nicer than eating in a national chain of restaurants.

So on the last day of our Hearst Castle trip, we decide to get good breakfast for ride home. Our son said the Cambria Cafe was supposed to offer the best breakfast in Cambria. It's on the main street of Cambria and bills itself as a Mexican American cafe. Okay, I guess we can try that. They had a pretty... More
