I stopped writing Yelp reviews a while back because of some their revised policies, however, after eating at Aqua Cafe, I'll make this exception.
Aqua Cafe is a Small business placed in a much needed location at the beach. The quality of food is superior and the cost is more than reasonable, especially since it seems all restaurants I've been to in north county have increased their prices considerably since the covid restrictions have been relaxed.
The staff is super friendly. Menu is simple.
You order and they bring the food out to you with a smile.
Definitely take the few extra steps to get here. You won't be disappointed.

"I think this is the best customer service experience I’ve ever received! The two gals working there were so kind and accommodating. I messed up and read the menu wrong but they happily made me another sandwich that was customized to what I like. Wow!!! Plus the sandwich was delicious! You get a lot of food for $12, so it’s definitely worth it. They even treated our dog to some turkey. This place is the best!!!"
