Friendly helpful staff, good cookies, ice cream and pastries (didn't try anything else but think anything here would be great). Seems like most everything was made from scratch. Loved it!

We stayed at the Beach Street Inn, right upstairs, so we had breakfast here a few times. The breakfast burrito, morning cake and turnovers were amazing...and very reasonably priced. We decided to try the Ideal Bar & Grille for breakfast on our last day and -- although there was a better view -- it couldn't compare to the taste and value at the Picnic Basket.

Stopped by for a quick sandwich and salad which were both good. Thought the salad was best. Service was quick and seats were available at the front. Would definitely go back.

If you want a great sandwich try this place. Unusual blend of traditional and California flare. Try the Ruben has carrots and spinach along with sauerkraut on the side. Not what you would expect but a surprisingly great presentation. Not much seating room is the only drawback

Near the beach, this is open early and has nice fresh baked goods for breakfast. Good cup of coffee. Young crew was running the place and they were upbeat. One of the food preparers took such great care with the presentation of the food that it was clear he is a perfectionist. Would definitely go back if in town again.
