101 Cafe

American classic since 1928

Little diner on Coast Highway (the 101) where you'll get generous portions of both ihstory and grub in every sitting

Went in to see the changes they have made at the Cafe. From the new Raspberry Coffee Cake to the new Salmon Burgers the food was great. Friendly service and all new old photos made it a good morning. We'll be back.

Avoid if at all possible.
