Dine inside or out. Nice covered locations. Good menu. Quick service. Try the American breakfast or the buffet. Both are good options.

Food is great, beautiful patio and very relaxing. Be sure to see the lagoon in front of the cafe for the rescued seals.

Description
Located on a picturesque peninsula on Mission Bay, Café Bahia is the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant of the Bahia Hotel. Its contemporary dining room, dotted with dark wood tables and scenic paintings, sits adjacent to an outdoor patio where Old World design elements like a three-tier fountain, textured white walls and wooden beams deliver European ambience. Led by Executive Chef Brett Wegrzyn, Café Bahia caters to a variety of tastes through American and international cuisine. Highlights include the Sunrise Breakfast Buffet, a lunch menu that spans beyond borders with items like Apple Cider Braised Pork Tacos, and thoughtful dinner entrées including Sesame Crusted Salmon and Braised Lamb Shank.
