If you are staying in Stinson or Bolinas this is your best option for dining. The food is delicious, fresh and the service is very good. There is an outdoor patio. The town itself is a throwback in time but authentic. The wine and beer choices are limited and okay. It worth the trip around the bend.

Happened upon this hidden gem while traveling up the California coast! Excellent food and service! We had the fish and Chips and it was exceptional....we've had it many times in England and this was among the best we've ever had! Only drawback is its fairly expensive....$17 for 3 fish fillets, chips and coleslaw. Overall, would definitely visit again!

Food can be a little uneven, but for the most part we loved this place. It's very convenient in downtown, it's real food - often very good - and service was always friendly. It just felt like coming home during the week we stayed in magical Bolinas - we returned to the cafe three times during that week - twice for dinner and once for brunch. In fact, we bypassed Stinson Beach restaurants in favor of the Coast Cafe.

To get to the Coast Cafe you first have to find Bolinas! Bolinasians (some of them) do not want to be found easily, therefore they kept destroying road signs at the Y on the road between Stinson Beach and Point Reyes. But with Google now everybody can and should go and visit the little coastal town and sit for a dinner at the Coast Cafe.
Or for a Sunday Brunch, in summer, sitting on the terrace and watching the locals go by...
The food is fresh, good, abundant and as much as possible from local organic sources.
You'll never go hungry and if you have room for dessert, then you are a very good eater!
Many good wines to choose from (the owner is also a certified sommelier) to accompany your choice of the day.
Lots of good seafood, great salads, scrumptious BBQ ribs, BBQ oysters in season...
On the walls you can browse artwork from local artist Emmeline Craig and you can even choose to buy a piece and go home with it. The staff is friendly, the ambiance laid back. Go with friends and ask for the long table (huge made of one slab of Cypress wood), you'll enjoy it!

The burgers are the best. Fish and chips, wine, salads, you name it! Fresh crab just caught from the bay! The patio outside is warm and lovely. Great vibe and best place to go in West Marin. Friendly and fun!
