My wife and I were staying the weekend in Santa Cruz and took a day trip to Carmel. On the way south, we stopped in Capitola for breakfast. Zelda's was serving their weekend "brunch" rather than their weekday "breakfast" which made everything a buck or two more. It was worth it. Both of us had great breakfasts (brunches?) that were nearly impossible to finish. One thing that made it hard was the basket of hot muffins they served us before our meal arrived. As good as any muffins I have ever eaten! We liked breakfast so much that we stopped on the way back from Carmel for dinner. We ate out on the deck and had a lovely view of the beach and the wharf. Dinner was not as good as breakfast, though it was not bad. Plenty to eat at a price that is not unreasonable, considering the view and the location. I would definitely go back, though more likely for breakfast than for dinner.
