Description: Bayside Cafe is nestled in the beautiful State Park Marina across from the entrance to the State Park Campground on lower State Park Road. The views of the back bay are astounding and unique.The food is very fresh with all homemade items including soups, salad dressing, sauces and desserts. You will not be disappointed by the friendly service and wide range of food items offered. A dog friendly outdoor patio is also a plus for our animal lovers.Oh, and by the way, we are NOT open for breakfast as has been stated by trip adviser.....sorry.Open every day for lunch starting at 11:00am and including service of dinners on Thursday through Sunday.See you there.

“Average at Best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

I had heard many good things about the Bayside Cafe and it came highly recommended by my sister (whose suggestions I generally trust). It was okay, nothing more. Ordered the "famous" nachos and they were average at best. Service was pretty slow, meals were not overly tasty and it was just okay. Nothing memorable.

“Casual and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

We stayed at the B&B. Every breakfast we had was very good. The people there were so friendly. The coffee was excellent and it was nice to see the locals with their dogs eating there every day.

“fun outdoor patio”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Bayside has some great dishes like their nachos, fresh catch of the day sandwich (always salmon) and the mud pie dessert serving is huge. We aren't fans of the tacos, however, which were mostly shredded lettuce.

“Always good, something for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Have eaten here many times, for everyday meals and special events, and always been very happy. Good service in a casual environment with food that is above the mark. The California Chowder is inspired!
