More than a dozen breakfast options. Burritos, omelettes, etc. No-frills, but clean...and a short walk up from the beach. Most everything was $9. Very friendly staff.

We had a quick dinner here after biking all afternoon. The ambiance was simple and super casual with lots of locals. The salsa bar had a nice variety of sauces. Hubby and I split nachos and a couple of drinks. Food was tasty and inexpensive.
