Cute little cafe located by the airport. Great breakfast selection. I almost missed the turn off to the restaurant as it sits off the main road.

This is a cute place situated at the airport. Pilots fly in from all over. So, you never know from where that diner next to you hails. The food is good and decent. The menu was set decades ago, so don't go and try to change things. It's fine. Eggs, Cheese, Meat, Veggies combined just about any way a breakfast... More

Lots of breakfast choices on the menu that include almost any type of breakfast food you could think of. Next to the Half Moon Bay airport and looks like it is in the middle of nowhere. Cute theme with lots on the walls to look at! Great omelets!

This was a great place to eat breakfast, we actually ate there two days in a row. Both times the food was excellent. I have waffles with fresh fruit, and my husband loved there omelettes. This is definitely a local favorite. Everyone was so very friendly, and the views aren't bad either. Be prepared to wait . I wish our... More

We learned about this place from the hotel in Half Moon Bay. It is about a mile north on the Cabrillo Highway. It "comes up quick" on the left and is just in front of the small Half Moon Bay airport. The food is outstanding. Everything from a run of the mill breakfast to Crab Benedict. The service was great.... More

What an outstanding breakfast. Crab Benedicts and southwestern omelet. The omelet had so much great sausage that it overflowed and I had a large portion left over, very flavorful and good service

Had eggs Benedict and their crab omelet. Excellent. Not fancy and a little pricy, but great food. Foggy so we couldn't see the planes take off. Next time.

Just had brunch at 3-Zero Cafe and it was VERY good! We were out on a motorcycle ride and passed this place twice before we turned on GPS and found it....it literally is a coffee shop in the small airport building! Food and service were both very good... I had the crab omelette and my husband had the northern omelette(mostly... More

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..

Thank ianomally
