Welcome to the Bay Cafe & Cantina at 55 Camino Aguajito in beautiful and sunny Monterey, California. We hope you enjoy our amazing location. In addition to being in sunny California, we are just a block away from the beach and directly across from a beautiful lagoon. We are within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf and a slightly longer walk to the Monterey Aquarium and Cannery Row.
We offer both authentic Mexican cuisine and classic American favorites. As you know, we live in an area with a rich Mexican heritage, as seen by the Carmel Mission nearby. As a result, our head chef, Enrique Alvarez, who grew up studying and cherishing his mother's recipes, has added a Cantina for your dining pleasure. He gives her wonderful original recipes his own personal flare.
We currently offer wine and beer. We have a full service Espresso Bar that is open for breakfast and lunch.
Most importantly our customers are our friends and our neighbors from the local area, and our guests who pass through the Bay Area and come from around the world.
We invite you to come in, sit back, and let us provide you with a dining experience you will truly enjoy!
Open Every Day
