Sunday noon with friends. The cafe part seems like an afterthought. Reviewers like the bakery and gift shop. We had two sandwiches and two drinks, black tea and chai. We got hot chai instead of the requested cold chai. Not worth complaining. Lunch for two was $25. It's conveniently located next to Cabrillo College, and the place to stop if... More

Freshly made sandwiches with lots of choices. Very small place right off the main road. They also have a variety of bakery items for dessert.

Quaint little eatery just down the hill from Cabrillo College, The Farm offers nice full breakfasts (cinnamon french toast, eggs Benedict etc. ) in a comfortable hybrid gift store/café setting. The real star here seems to be the baked goods/ pastries - several varieties of full-sized tarts/tartlettes (pear, peach, strawberry, mixed berries, chocolate ganache, etc.) are available, as well as...

We love the bakery, and go there often to get cookies and fruit tarts, especially during basketball season. Today we also ordered cafe items to go, including a house ice tea at the price of $2.50. We spent over $60.00. We ended-up eating there, and I asked for an ice tea refill. 2 staff members told me they weren't allowed... More

I love this place! They have great sandwiches and really healthy and tasty salads. The atmosphere is wonderful and you can sit outside on the patio is you desire. They are also known for their wonderful fruit tarts and coffee drinks. A great place to meet a friend, relax and enjoy breakfast or lunch!

Love the gift shop full of fun little items. The counter people can be attentive at times and sometimes quite slow and busy... More

Recently visited area (used to live in nearby La Selva) and always try to eat lunch here if possible. Ingredients are fresh. We had two very tasty different quiches, and some delicious cream of broccoli soup. You order cafeteria style, and they bring it out to you very promptly. There are delicious sandwiches, lots of salads, specials. You really can't... More

I actually would recommend this spot over the hugely popular and near-by Gayle's. The Farm is smaller and much more laid back. Home-made baked goods were outstanding - the best molasses cookie ever, and I'm an expert! Quiches were super, rich and tasty. Prices were more down-to-earth than the local competitiors. There are a few tables, or take away. Order... More

The farm was recommended to me as a place to get breakfast. It's set up like a coffee house - order at the bar. Food is delivered to your table (if you find one open. There are more outside). Eggs Benedict are descent and coffee is fresh. The front 1/4 of the cafe is a retail shop full of fun... More

Wonderful bakery with breakfast and lunch items. Great quiches and sandwiches. There is also a wonderful little gift store area with unique items you don't see anywhere else.
