I have had some very good breakfast at Skippers, Lunch is on par with most fast restaurants, The view from the patio is nice and right along the beach. Kids like the food here best.

We visited for breakfast on the 4th of July. The other place we always eat at chose to close for the local parade. Bummer. Skipper's welcomed us and our puppy (for patio dining)! The food was good and service was adequate, being they seemed to be the only place open during the parade. The gentleman helping out on the patio... More

We sat on the back patio in the shade, our waitress was lovely and friendly. I had the French toast with bacon and eggs, was delicious!! He had the bacon... More

I had the Western Omelette and Hashbrowns. The omelette was great and cooked perfectly with a mind blowing cheese center. The hashbrowns were slightly over cooked and super crispy.

I am giving this place two stars because it is dog friendly and has a great oceanfront location. In Cayucos, with these two pluses there should be a line for Sunday breakfast. When we ate there, only about 3 tables were full. Drinks in styrofoam cups, plastic cutlery. Portions were huge, but eggs over cooked, coffee bad. Service perfunctory at... More

This is an old school cafe.. Feels like family and the food is spot on. I had a great breakfast sandwich. It was just what I needed to get my day going.

Friendly people, good old fashioned home cooking. Prices are low. I love the Sand Dollar! They have many good menu items and also specials. They aren't expensive. They also offer outdoor seating.

Family run place for 35 years. Breakfast and lunch only. CASH only, no cards of any type. Nice patio across from the beach, but when it's busy you need to go inside to order. Breakfast and sandwiches likely your best bet.

Went for lunch and it was ok. Had a burger and a fish sandwich. Just okay. I would not bother stopping here again. Better food at other places in town. The do have outside seating for you and you pet.
