Only open on weekends for breakfast and brunch. Vegan options; lovely ladies working, bring your own cup.

This far exceeded our expectations! Some choices for local fish, fresh veggies, nice wines by the glass, excellent service.

We just spent 4 days in the redwoods and the tiny town we stayed in didn’t have much available to eat so we ended up driving 45 min here. Loved it! Had a snootie hippy sandwich twice, mom enjoyed the muffin breakfast sandwich with avocado...and larrupin (still not sure what that was?), cappuccinos we’re perfect, kombucha delish and the outdoor area while brisk in the morning was friendly and welcoming. The staff were friendly. Baked goods made great post hike snacks. If you’re looking for a great place for healthy breakfast or lunch while in the area, look no further. Or even if you’re a bit further afield, it’s worth the drive!More

A lovely local cafe I NEVER miss when I’m in the area. Great staff of young “woke” women, great coffee drinks (no take-out cups though) - my fave is the Mexican Mocha - unique daily specials & menu, & a beautiful case delicious fresh-baked crumpets....A complete winner!More

If you can get a window table, there is a nice view. Food was just OK. Nothing special. Expensive for what we got and the wait for service was ridiculous. Not returning there.

..the view of beautiful Trinidad alone. BC cafe has some excellent egg and green options as well as some sumptuous drinks.

Although their menu is small, they produce really high-quality dishes and great coffee. The "Mexican Moca" is spicy and delicious. Their "multicultural" bagel with cream cheese, local lox, and capers is incredible. The indoor seating is kind of limited, but it's a cozy, artsy atmosphere....Outdoor seating along the sidewalk. Keep in mind they do not use or supply to-go cups. You have to order it in a ceramic mug to drink on site, or you have to bring your own to-go thermos, mug, etc. That's my only complaint: although it's environmentally conscious, their coffee wasn't convenient for an out-of-towner on the go like me.More

Burgers were good...quick lunch for us. Enjoyed and very casual. Easy in and out and can sit in or out.

I like that they use organic eggs and many other organic ingredients. I don't like that the menu was limited. Coffee and teas were excellent. I was not impressed with the dry bran muffin recommended to me. I also was not impressed by the very...hard multigrain english muffin beneath my eggs. It was difficult to chew! But I like the large outdoor seating and that it's dog friendly and they try and use organic ingredients.More

Enjoyed our pastries here and the service was also great.Friendly staff and coffee was wonderful!! Glad we were there on a sunny day as we sat in the patio area.

Every day. Bright. Fresh. Healthy. Delicious. Exactly what I crave (everyday but especially on a road trip). Homemade hot sauce. Strong coffee. Thoughtful staff. I planned to get my glass mason jar (for a modest $1) for my refills and to go. I cannot remember...what my partner ate, only that she loved everything.More

It was just OK, maybe caught it on an off day. The muffins seemed under-cooked and lacking flavor. No coffee to-go paper cups only ceramic mugs, so bring your own thermos if needed. As a tourist this was not convenient. The cafe itself was cute...inside and had a nice outside sitting area as well. The restroom was out of order.More

I can only review the coffee because that is all we ordered. It was great. In looking around it seemed that the breakfast choices were limited but there could have been more that we did not know about.

We stumbled on the Beachcomber Cafe and had a delicious lunch after hiking. The staff was very nice. A cute and casual restaurant.
