Fun little restaurant at the airport in Half Moon Bay. Nice selection of breakfast dishes and great food. The sweet potato waffles with pecan butter were really yummy As was the omelette with focaccia, pesto and goat cheese as well as the burgers.

Great breakfasts with a wide variety of choices. I had the brioche French toast, which was covered in blueberries and strawberries. My friend had an omelet. She is a local and highly recommends 3-Zero cafe.

A right turn off Route 1 into this local haunt will probably be a happy landing for hungry diners looking for good quality, variety and service. A woman named Willa who runs a nearby horse stables first shared the best kept secret for eggs and pancakes (yes, real maple syrup) in Half Moon Bay. It's not ideal if you want... More

Cute little cafe with a aviator theme. Nice size menu to choose from. Very generous portions. The strawberry waffle was like dessert it was soooo good! Definitely recommend.

This restaurant, next to a small airport, has a significant airplane theme, with pictures and posters covering the walls. The food was average, although I heard that the breakfasts were better than average. I probably won't go there again since I resist restaurants solely on the quality of the food.

Owner seems stressed but does try to put on a happy face. Food is so so and my grandson Charlie loves chocolate and the Mickey Mouse pancakes
