I love the vibe, the food and view of Fletcher's Cove. Casual environment with healthy food options and friendly staff. Their quinoa and green rice sides are awesome. Love the prosperity plate and their daily specials! Be prepared to wait during weekend peak times but it's worth it and you can enjoy watching the surfers across the street while you wait.

Linda and I are big fans of organic, sustainable restaurants. When we learned about the Naked Café and its focus on those concepts, we were excited to try it. We had passed it several times when the line was out the door and imagined it must be great. However, to be honest, I am not sure what the attraction is. We were greeted by Kelly, our server, who must have had a tough night or bad morning, because she did not appear to be in a very good mood; hard to imagine when she looked out the front window at the ocean! It seemed like she was doing us a favor waiting on us and hardly went out of her way to make sure our needs were met. True, she was busy, because the place was busy, but she passed us several times without even noticing our empty coffee mugs. We placed our order, me the artichoke scramble—eggs, cheese, artichokes, green onions, and tomatoes-- and Linda the Welcome to Naked—scrambled eggs and sautéed tomatoes, both order served with herbed potatoes and toast. We waited a considerable amount of time for the food to arrive and when it did, the eggs were cold. We hate returning food items to a sensitive chef, but we couldn’t eat the cold eggs. Perhaps we should have paid for our coffee, which was good, and left, but we chose to wait it out. When the eggs returned, they were bland, warm, and unappetizing and the potatoes were burnt. When a restaurant specialized in breakfast and lunch, the meals should be impeccable, presented well, and tasty. Our breakfast didn’t meet any of those criteria. Though we are willing to give most places a second chance, we won’t this time. The Hide Away Café is in the same vicinity and, in our opinion, is superior to the mediocre service and breakfast we had at the Naked Café.

We visited for breakfast after a suggestion from a friend that lives in the area. it was lovely and quiet with only a few other tables occupied. we could walk here from our apartment so was lovely to walk off the food afterwards as the pancake portions were huge!
Food was quickly delivered and tasted good. the Mexican hot chocolate is worth a try.
Overall a lovely breakfast for a great price.

Seriously, I had the Plate of Prosperity last Saturday morning and it was great and quite unique.
Very interesting menu and nice seaside venue.

Great atmosphere. Great views of the ocean. Right across the street from Fletcher Cove so you can go for a nice walk on the beach after your meal.

Great service. Friendly staff. All amazing choices.
