Our overall breakfast experience was good, but not great. I did enjoy the Hangtown Fry, and thought the oysters were of very good quality and cooked perfectly. The downside was that they did not offer pure maple syrup, which negated all options for pancakes and...More

They have several versions of eggs benedict. Best eggs Benedict ever. Cozy environment inside or out on the patio. Good service.

Duncan's Mills is a teensy coastal town of 175 people near Bodega Bay, CA. Made up of a handful of storefronts, you would not expect high flying professional food in what looks like a throwback tourist stopoff. This is 100% worth your time. Last year,...More

We decided to stop to go through the shops. But while we were there we decided to get a bite. OMG! This was a fantastic "Get A Bite" place. I could have had lunch and dinner in one sitting. But I controlled myself!

This is a nice little place to stop for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Good food and drinks. The service can be a bit slow though.

Journey inland about three miles from Jenner to the small town of Duncans Mills. This small but super-friendly cafe gets its name from the owners' original coastal residence in Cape Fear, North Carolina. But there's nothing to fear here. Friendly wait staff, food is great...More
