Zeldas on the Beach

Located a short stroll from your apartment at Capitola Suites, along the Esplanade,
about 3 blocks away. The setting at Zelda's is the main attraction here. It is
pretty "funky", and a bit on the shabby side inside. However their Huevos
Rancheros is a pretty good bet, and sitting on the patio overlooking
the beach enhances the taste buds and your morning spirit! The
food is not the main attraction here, it is the view!
It is also a great place to people watch.

A popular outdoor restaurant serving breakfast, lunch & dinner.
