It's now called Baja Beach Cafe. It's ok good breakfast but it no longer has some of the old menu stuff? Not a bad place but ok. Was great.

nice place to relax and have their famous bloody mary. Lots of people watching when you sit on the patio. I tried a baked apple, brie and spinach omelet. Surprisingly good combo.

Green Flash has changed their name now, but it was still very good. They actually have 2 for 1 drinks for happy hour. We enjoyed the appetizers as well. Great location, and good food!

We had our Valentines Day Dinner here after being married the day before. Best fish I have had in years. We shared a single dinner but the gave us 2 full plates of fish and steak. Great location next to the Beach Cottages.

The name has changed to the Baja Beach Café and it was small and crowded. They only serve breakfast before noon. We arrived at 11:30 and they would NOT serve lunch. Not what I would consider customer friendly. I would not recommend it.
