No time to stop for a meal, but we picked up some Deep Fried Artichokes. I think these were some of the best I've ever eaten. The batter was light, they weren't greasy and the oil tasted fresh, not burned. I noticed the wine selection and the white table cloths as I stood waiting for my take-out order. I definitely...

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner (chef) who is a "hoot" & made us feel very welcome. This isn't a touristy spot as it seemed to be frequented by locals which says a lot about this restaurant. The food is outstanding & I give the Moss Landing Cafe two big thumbs up!!!!

We had heard that this was a good choice for breakfast, and the reviews were correct. We elected to try the fish and eggs, with our fish selection being the sand dabs. It was excellent. Fish and eggs may not seem like a good combination, but if you enjoy fresh seafood, you'll find it here and prepared wonderfully. Most days... More

Staying nearby didn't want to travel far after long journey here. Went based on trip adviser reviews and very glad we did. Warm welcome, fast service and excellent tasty food. Choc brownie was amazing. Will definitely try it again this time for breakfast. 80 dollars for 4 so reasonable too.

On the outskirt of town (only a mile or so), it's a really good restaurant with normal prices, which means cheap for the area. Everything we ordered was very good. Service was friendly and good. You can tell it's a locals hang out, less of us tourist types there. I'd say it's the number one place for breakfast. Give them... More

We read reviews of this cafe, and thought we would try it out... This was one of the best meals EVER! It is a small place and not much to look at on the outside, but don't let that fool you! It was SUPERB! The service is fantastic, the chef, Mark comes out and tells you the nightly menu. The... More

We eat here about once a month when down at the harbor. Great breakfasts with many specials to choose from. I love that they have fresh ling cod for breakfast...my favorite! This is where all the locals eat for breakfast, as well as many traveling through the area. Service is friendly, and if you have to wait for a seat,... More

My family and I recently visited and were quite surprised at how delicious our food was at this little café in Moss Landing. A very small and with a low profile and a tasty menu. Every dish we had was delicious and the seafood was especially fresh and delicious. The service was very attentive and fast. Recommended on a trip... More

Had the 'fish of the day' with a daily special and it was excellent! This cafe was recommended to us and we were told, "You will never say mmmm so often during a meal". I totally agree. The cafe has tables close to each other; not much atmosphere but the food definitely makes up for it.
