“Amazing service, great location..kind of smelly”
Review of Ebb Tide Cafe - CLOSED

Ebb Tide Cafe
Restaurant details

This place is SO cute and really fantastic service. The lady gave me an extra shot of espresso for free! However, the windows were all closed and there wasn't much ventilation so it really smelled bad. We chose to sit outside instead.

This local hang out is located off-the-beaten-path on Miranda Road at the shore between Half Moon Bay and Pillar Point. The Ebb Tide is only open during weekends and barely a tourist gets lost here. You can enjoy a book on the small oceanfront patio or inside if the fog pulls in. The interior comes in a charming 70’s Northern Californian beach town atmosphere and the lovely host is fun to chat with.
Don’t miss on the homemade pastries, sandwiches, and if available soup of the day. All the stuff is incredible tasteful and perfectly accompanies the delicious organic coffee.

BTW - the non-profit Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society that shares the place with the Ebb Tide features live jazz and classical music concerts.

+ Oceanfront view
+ Cozy 70’s atmosphere
+ Lovely host
+ Great coffee, pastries, and snacks

We discovered this place a few weeks ago. It is a nice simple cafe. Not a lot of food options. They have flavored syrups for coffee & hot chocolate, & teas. Inside there is a variety of music that you can play & many books to read. Looking out from inside, through the large glass windows, you can see the ocean. You can also sit outside. Expect it to be slightly chilly here next to the ocean, but you cannot beat the sunset. There is parking on their property. They have music performances as well.

We went to this secret cafe by the beach. It was so cozy to sit outside and have coffee and chocolate. The owner, pretty aged, came and danced to old style beats. He played some lovely music. The lady at the counter was very friendly and we had a nice chat. They accept only cash. I first entered and when I saw the sign I was about to walk out thinking I did not have the cash but they volunteered to give it to me for free! A nice Cappucino made it even more a pleasure. It is not anywhere near the center of Half Moon bay.
