Cliffhanger Cafe

Food with a View


The Cliffhanger Café is located high atop the sea cliffs of Torrey Pines. Diners are treated to a breath-taking view of the Pacific Ocean as it spans from the beach 350 feet below, all the way to the horizon. Dolphins and whales can be seen from the cliffs. Paragliders, hang gliders, RC gliders, and more all launching right in front of the outdoor dining area, make this a truly unique dining experience.

The full-service deli-cafe is open daily, offering lunch and snacks from 9 AM to about 4 PM. Come try our highly-acclaimed sandwiches, fresh salads, and soups! Snacks such as fruit, chips, etc are also available. Cold water, sports drinks, energy, soda, and coffee are also available. Call in orders and take out are welcome.

The Cliff Hanger Cafe is also the perfect spot to have your business or catered event. Tired of spending your lunch hours in a fluorescent-lit break room eating the same old tuna sandwich? Drop by Torrey Pines Gliderport any day of the week and dine at the Cliffhanger Cafe. In addition to business lunches, we host many special events throughout the year, including birthdays, anniversaries, and family get-togethers. Come by and see why the Cliffhanger Cafe is such a special location!
