We visited on a mid-morning on a weekday. On the good side, the breakfast was very very good & sizeable. The servers were very friendly. However, the wait between for our order after placed was at least 20 minutes. The restaurant was only moderately busy. A very low key environment, however we were not impressed with the cleanliness (e.g., coffee... More

Nice enough place. Decent food, good portions. Nothing that will blow your socks off but satisfying. Sometimes long waits are coupled with slow service but not the worst I've been exposed to. Staff is polite.

The first thing I noticed was all of the airplane memorabilia hanging in literally ever possible space throughout the cafe. That alone is worth the price of admission - once. Note this is also called the 30 cafe in some reviews. I imagine its called the 3 xero becasue of the alignment of the runway - but who knows. We... More

The most bang for your buck and great food to boot. If you go there on a Saturday or Sunday and the weather is nice to have a nice outdoor patio you can watch the airplanes landing and taking off. Friendly staff and good service once you get seated

Heard about this restaurant and had to take the drive to Half Moon Bay to check it out. I had my usual fare, Huevos Rancheros, and it was fabulous. The eggs were perfectly cooked and while I prefer my corn tortillas with a bit of a crunch, these were not but I ate every bite. The beans, rice and salsa... More

We ate breakfast at the 3-Zero and had a great experience. Location is at the airport. Access from the highway is excellent. Food and price were very good. Decor was aviation. I wish I'd had more time to enjoy all the photos. Service was good. The owner might seem a bit rough but chat with him if you can and... More

Cute little cafe located by the airport. Great breakfast selection. I almost missed the turn off to the restaurant as it sits off the main road.

This is a cute place situated at the airport. Pilots fly in from all over. So, you never know from where that diner next to you hails. The food is good and decent. The menu was set decades ago, so don't go and try to change things. It's fine. Eggs, Cheese, Meat, Veggies combined just about any way a breakfast... More

Lots of breakfast choices on the menu that include almost any type of breakfast food you could think of. Next to the Half Moon Bay airport and looks like it is in the middle of nowhere. Cute theme with lots on the walls to look at! Great omelets!
