For a small cafeteria style restaurant that’s the only show in town, the food is surprisingly decent and the specials are even better. There was quite a crowd from the ferry tours but the staff managed it all with good service, patience, and answered ridiculous...More

Sandwiches and drinks are fine just not gourmet. Better to bring over what you like and supplement with a few cold drinks.

Usually I am hesitating with these kind of places but here there is no reason. Good food - even vegan - for a reasonable price. Nice to sit outside, if the SF summer permits, and watch the seals taking a nap on the pier.

The Cantina is pretty much the only place to eat on the Angel island tour. I guess that means they can charge the captive audience whatever they want. The menu had a decent variety, some healthy, some not. I had the gluten free power salad...More

We had failed to do our research properly and hadn't clocked that you could order lunch online ahead of a visit to Angel Island. It didn't matter but worth noting if you are planning a visit. We ordered the veggie wrap to share for lunch...More

Average but expensive for what you order. Breakfast filling was microwaved due to the amount of people that the cafe turnover. Try and have breakfast before your tour...like I said A LAST MINUTE RESORT!!!!

Not far at all, can be seen from the landing or vice versa. Great food made to order, not your typical frigerated sandwiches or packaged salads. Can take on board the ferry if your pressed for time.
