Traveling the 101 heading south, we first came across Cafe Quakenbush about a year ago, finding ourselves hungry, and stopped in for a wonderful lunch. This year, same scenario, and this time we made a beeline for it. We were not disappointed. Friendly, speedy service. We both had the special, the flank steak salad, mine with the fried egg on top. Totally fresh, totally delicious. Plenty of tender, well prepared flank steak; excellent blue cheese, the salad was well dressed with a simple vinaigrette, just the perfect amount really. Freshly made iced tea, and when I asked for a to go cup to take my remaining with me, they also offered to bring my husband another iced tea to go as well. We wish we had room for dessert...an extensive list, I believe all made in-house, and in perusing the case, they all certainly looked delicious! Whether heading north to the Bay Area, or south to LA, this is an easy stop off the 101. Highly recommend.
