Reviews for South Shore Cafe

Our family talked about what ONE place do you MOST want to go when things go back to normal after Covid-19, and my son picked this place (he calls it The Pancake Place, even though we have certainly been to other places for pancakes as well). The staff are all wonderful and friendly and know us now. The pancakes are good. The produce is always fresh. There is easy parking and seldom a wait for a table. We miss it and wish all the staff well, we hope to see you before too long!
We like this place. We lived in Alameda almost 25 years before we moved near the South Shore Center and got around to trying the cafe. It's often an older crowd there who have been going there for years. Isn't customer loyalty a pretty high recommendation? It isn't fancy, but the food is good and you never leave there hungry or broke. The waitresses are often very busy, but, from what I've witnessed, never anything but polite. Update: 5/8/20, Like a lot of other places full review

In the local Alameda paper, this cafe is referred to as "the beloved South Shore Cafe". It most certainly is! Their food is reasonably priced, comes quickly, is well prepared, and their waitstaff is very efficient. My brother and I eat lunch there at least once a week and it is invariably excellent.
