two half starved people on the hunt for breakfast and not a chain restaurant in site, too late for McD's breakfast and in desperate need for eggs....Skippers to the rescue! We sat on the back patio in the shade, our waitress was lovely and friendly....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...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.

This was a perfect stop for a quick simple breakfast. The food was good and the portions were generous. Must bring cash they don't take plastic. John & LynNita Ellis

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.

I was really disappointed. I expected more from this place. I ordered at the window and sat out street side, which was the best part of the experience... I enjoy traveling and watching locals come and go :). The burger was so over cooked, dry...More

Good breakfast and lunch spot near the pier and beach area. Service is always great. Servers are friendly, and remember if you've been there before.
