This place is one of Santa Cruz best! My wife and I make a point to eat here every time we are in Santa Cruz. The wait to be seated is well worth it. Indoors or outside. The breakfast, delish! Eggs Benedict YUM! The carnita omelet TASTY YUM! Every breakfast item looks great coming out of the hard working kitchen that pumps out the delishness. Burgers are Tasty, Harbor Tacos WOW YUM! Oh yes, skip the fries and go for the Polenta Fries they are the bomb with there house made sauce. Bloody Mary's YES GOOD AND SPICY! Every Staff member is hard working and friendly. I would give this place a 5 rating but deducted 1 for parking, can take awhile to find a spot close by, unless you get lucky to catch somebody leaving at the right time. Harbor Café is a must try. I crave it every time we are near.

Very handy if staying at the harbour Inn. Popular with locals and visitors alike so busy but no problem with getting table or service. Sit in or out in the sunshine for a relaxing lingering breakfast

We love coming here on Fridays for lunch. The food is absolutely amazing and the drinks are always flowing. Great place to have breakfast or lunch 7 days a week with some friends.

Great breakfast/brunch venue right on 7th Avenue in Santa Cruz, with a short 8 min. walk to the beach and Santa Cruz harbor. The food was excellent, and so were the morning cocktails. Great atmosphere, very hopping place, lots of great energy, and locals will talk to random people that show up there. Great vibe, and friendly staff. Get there early if you want to sit and hopefully avoid a long wait (typically 1.5 hours if you get there by 10am). Don't say I didn't warn you! Indoor/outdoor seating, with great surfer decor inside. Worth the wait, and you can say you ate "like a local".
