Stopped here after hiking Abalone Shoreline State Park and we were starving. It's basically a burger, hot dog, gyros place but the food was good and inexpensive. Hit the spot!

Ive been there for Breakfast & very much enjoyed it. Everything from Bacon & eggs to a list of Mexican favorites. At luch time they serve a big delious taco but many other things on the menu were just as good. My only negative there will be a extra charge if you use a credit card.

I really love their burgers. The price for a hamburger special is just under $7. I've also had their chicken salad on multiple occasions, and enjoy that also. Service is usually pretty quick. This place serves breakfast and is always busy around that time

They'll definitely have something you like if you like breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The gyro was messy but good, next time I'll ask for less sauce. This place is hopping. Not full service, but good and efficient service at the counter.

My whole family loves the food from this fantastic cafe. We get breakfast burritos from there every week when we are in town. Haven't rain anything bad there.

Small town cafe. Great burgers & fat fries, hearty breakfast, lots of menu choices. Reminiscent of a 1960s diner. Popular with the locals.

Fantastic Cafe is a nice char broiler burger place typical of the area. They have limited seating with a standard burger joint menu selection. The pastrami sandwich is better than average but nothing to rave about. The place is always clean and usually busy. You order at the counter and pick up your order at the counter when it is... More
