Come on in and enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch with the locals while having a great day at the Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk! Beach Street Cafe is owned and operated by Dollie and Willie Case.  The building housing the present operation dates back to the turn of the century, making it one of the oldest structures in the beach area.
You are invited to move around the dining room and hallway areas to enjoy the Maxfield Parrish original art print collection.   Maxfield Parrish was a turn of the century artist, born in Philadelphia in 1870.   He was one of the better known artists during the early years of the century.   He illustrated for a variety of magazines including Colliers, Scribners, and Life. He painted until the age of ninety one; he was ninety five when he died in 1966.  Click here to see more of the Maxfield Parrish collection.
"There's no place in California like the Santa Cruz boardwalk, and there's no place in Santa Cruz like the Beach Street Cafe.  The food here is consistently good.  Fresh, wholesome, natural ingredients are the rule, a policy that has won awards for the clam chowder, simmered for hours with tender sea clams and fresh vegetables.  The "mile-high" hamburger is a big favorite, and I can personally attest to the delicious orange muffins and fresh-ground coffee."

"While visiting with friends in Santa Cruz, Sue and I had no idea where to go for lunch, but a local woman suggested the Beach Street Cafe, saying it was excellent and unique.   Boy, was she ever right.  This cozy restaurant is right across the street from the fun zone of Santa Cruz, yet has all the charm of an old world cafe."
Let's Go! Restaurant Review by Wayne Gordon
"If you're going to the beach in Santa Cruz...get up early, zip over the hill and enjoy breakfast at the beach while you're waiting for the morning fog to burn off.  The Beach Street Cafe serves up a wonderful brunch in a calm, cozy atmosphere.  Be sure to go for the orange muffin."
