We used to stop here years ago under different owners. Sort of an old hippie place, and we sort of liked the ambience and crafts. Changed now, different but OK.

You can see the ocean across the road and a brief little hike or two will take you to the sea cliffs and some trails down to the beach. In the season we have watched whales steaming by. Pretty cool for us because we live far out of state.

Last time we stopped we had decent road fare. Not gourmet, not a crowded night and we were there early. We were in that sort of non tourist period between mothers day and Memorial Day. There was even a brief eclipse when we were there and everyone went out to watch.

Good experience

We stopped here for dinner after driving back from the SF Zoo and had the worst service ever!!! I had dinner once before, years ago and was not impressed but we decided to give this place another chance. What a mistake!!! The restaurant was not that too busy and we were seated relatively quickly. Then we sat for almost 10 minutes before a someone came over to ask us what we wanted to drink. Then continued to wait another 10 minutes before we got up and left. We sat there for almost 20 minutes without someone taking our order while other individuals around us were seated and ordered! This place is a joke when it comes to customer service!!! We walked out and drove back to Santa Cruz for dinner. In hindsight we should have just gone to the other two restaurants next door but we were so angry that we just wanted to get out of Davenport! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AT THIS PLACE!!!!!

Excellent stop on Hwy 1. omelets and eggs cooked to perfection. Worth the stop over. Coffee served up quickly. It is not the best but well worth it in your travels.

Saw this place numerous times on drives along the coast but never stopped. Finally made it inside and wished we had kept on driving. The atmosphere is nice, tables nicely spaced and a good view of the ocean. Heard that the clam chowder was a specialty, but of course on that Monday the soup had not been made yet. They had no turkey for the turkey sandwich also. As far as the fish and chips goes, the fish was fine. The fried calamari were served on top of a salad that had little-to-no dressing and the calamari were cold. The waitress at the next table was showing her naked stomach and tattoos to the gentlemen customers- she had such a short top on that they couldn't help but see the sights. Needless-to-say we left dissatisfied.
