We have been on the hunt for the best breakfast in HMB since we moved here. We've tried them all and my go-to favorite has become 3-zero. I stick to the breakfast menu. The crab Benedict is not to be missed. I order it on avocado slices instead of an English muffin and it was worth the $1.25 up charge.... More

A small coffee shop tucked into a an old drag strip with lots of old planes and models hanging from the ceiling. Mark, the owner, is a little gruff until he likes you...best for breakfast....fly in if you have a plane..

Came here before our trip down Pacific Coast Highway. Small place at airport but truly delivers! So many items to choose from on the menu. I settled for the crab omelette and it was amazing! Large chunks of crabmeat were to die for. Potatoes were good too. Hubby and friend had northern omelette and it was great too. Another friend... More

Have a good hearty American heart stopping, artery clogging breakfast. (or you can opt for the tofu scramble) It's tasty fresh and good quick service and you can eat while watching the planes come in and take-off.

3 Zero cafe provides a hearty breakfast with the fun of being at a small airport where you can watch the flight activity. The decor is air related with some historic pictures on the walls. The menu selection and portions are large. My husband and I experienced a mishap and our order was significantly delayed however the waiter recognized the... More

Not only is this an adorable diner in a small airport, the food is actually delicious! The staff are like family and they welcome pets in their back courtyard overlooking the small planes. It's a beautiful drive from SF and the perfect brunch spot out of the city.

Chicken Chorizo omlette this morning! Yum! This is a must visit for kids of all ages who like breakfast, lunch and airplanes! We had a children's birthday party here and they *loved* it!

Very friendly wait staff; we enjoyed well prepared Eggs Italia, an egg dish with diced tomatoes, pesto and goat cheese. French toast good as well. Loads of airplane models and photographs, with accompanying stories. Café is not very large; best to arrive early if you're going on a weekend morning.

Great for kids who like airplanes as the cafe abuts a small airport and is full of model airplanes and memorabilia. More importantly, the food was great. I highly recommend the spinach wrap burrito. Breakfast is served all day and is reportedly really good.

Surprisingly good little diner situated in the Half Moon Bay airport. The breakfast was delish - I had the Salmon Benedict and even the home fries were good! My hubby had the B25 burger which was huge and very good stacked high with bacon and onion rings. The fries were twice cooked and so crispy and tasty! We couldn't resist... More
