I have been coming here for breakfast, brunch or lunch for over 20 years. The food is excellent. It is home cooking at its best. Particularly fantastic are the soups with amazing bread and butter. A meal here will not be forgotten.

The kale salad here is delicious! Ask for it with the grilled chicken. They are generous with the avocado (hopefully the avocado shortage will not affect that!). There are few places in Pacifica with decent salads so this place is a keeper. Also, the cafe always has interesting art on the walls.

The food was good, my veggie sandwich was yummy and they didn't skimp on the avocado which I appreciate. I thought our bill was a little high for what we ordered - 3 mains (two were breakfast) and 2 sides, 1 beer, but maybe that is just CA prices for ya. The main drawback was that it seemed a little...

During a visit to San Fran we stayed in Pacifica at a Airbnb and this place was just down the hill and we had a great meal and the voodoo blend drip coffee was amazing! We had Pupusas which are at least twice as big as the ones I've seen and the were delicious, huevos rancheros were just ok (wish... More

Popped in for breakfast after visiting Pacifica Pier. Prior reviews are accurate - yummy coffee and super generous portions- i had oatmeal with fixings and others in my group had breakfast quesadillas, egg sandwich, ham & cheese croissant, and home fries - everything was excellent including pastries! Great service and neat historic building!

We frequently come over the hill from the peninsula on weekends to hike along the coast. Sunday brunch is our reward for our efforts and we've found our spot! Very down to earth atmosphere filled with locals. You place your order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table. There is a variety of coffee and the... More

We love Salada for breakfast. The food is wonderful and the menu has some interesting offerings that you don't usually see on menus. For example, the Loco...ham, eggs, spinach, cream cheese, with a side of black beans and fried plantains. I also like to get the Bacado. (Bacon and Avocado scramble with Jack cheese.) The coffee is great and we... More

I really enjoy the coffee here, the French roast get me to heaven! Plus you can't miss with the biscotti , almond croissant , banana nut bread or the pop tart ( home made with raspberry filling very orgasmic)! The conversation can be crazy at times the music good and your near the beach ! What else can you ask... More

We ate here twice while visiting Pacifica, and although the person taking your order at the counter doesn't welcome you or even speak to you while you place your order, the food is quite good. We had some good sandwiches. Don't bother ordering cookies though -- I took some to go, and they were stale.

Thank maureenb870
