Breakfast being my husbands favorite meal and this being our 24th wedding anniversary we decided to stop in because of the high ratings. Quite disappointed with the food, my husband had the eggs and corned beef hash. He didn't like it at all. My strawberry waffle was good. Loved the malt waffle and it was cooked well. The place is...

Great service! Husband had the Brioche French Toast and was delighted with his choice! I had the crab cake eggs benedict which was delish! Generous portions! We will be back! We always try to go some place different when traveling and we were very happy with this choice.

Pretty neat place, friendly owner and some great food. Visited this place a couple times over our holidays and really enjoyed ourselves. Food was great too. if I would have to change anything, I would prefer the option of regular toast (the only serve English Muffins). Met some interesting people here who were locals and gave us great tips on... More

I like coming out here. Good food, not too expensive, with some good health options. Down to earth environment and service. Nice outdoor seating in the back.

A basic cafe for breakfast. Food was great. Was entertaining to watch the planes landing and taking off too.

This little breakfast and lunch spot is right on the Half Moon Bay airport property. It's small and unassuming but well worth trying. We had been warned that service was often slow, but we saw no sign of that. The hash and eggs dish was cooked just right and hubby's omelette was delicious (and huge). Strong coffee, pleasant servers and... More

This is a really fun place for breakfast. It is really popular (there was a wait on a Sunday morning) but totally worth it. The pancakes (plain and blueberry) were yummy (and huge!) The crab omelette was unusual and good. Everything was delicious. Our waiter also made it really fun. He was a bit of a wise crack and he... More

3 Zero Cafe is our go to place for breakfast. Mark is very nice and will answer any questions you might have. I had their french toast combo with fruit on it. My favorite. When we were there last fall it had blueberries and strawberries. My husband and I both love aviation so we spent time looking around at all... More

Three of us stopped in before the place was open. We were invited in to have coffee until they were ready. That was fine because the place is packed with all types of stuff re aviation. Model planes hang from the ceiling. Pictures galore, memorabilia from the owners own collection keep the eyes and mind busy while you wait for... More

My husband and I recently stayed two nights in Half Moon Bay. I had seen other reviews on 3-Zero Cafe and was compelled to go. We weren't disappointed. My husband had French toast with cinnamon and nutmeg while I had eggs benedict. His was better, but there were so many great options on the menu that we looked forward to... More
