Nothing beats great unique tacos (breakfast options as well starting at 8 am) - great prices and an unbeatable view of the ocean and surfers below. Amazing experience every time.

We all had shrimp tacos and they were delicious. The view was wonderful and our grandkids loved feeding the squirrels! Who knew they'd hang out at the beach!
