Balboa Cafe Restaurant Review

: Marina and Cow Hollow locals, from the sporty weekend warriors to the Prada-clad clan, enjoy this casual spot. Shimmy up to the classic long bar surrounded by a handful of cocktail tables for a pint of beer or a glass of wine. Wide windows open onto the street, good for people-watching. The connection to PlumpJack Wines reveals a by-the-glass list that numbers into the dozens. Meals are served at the bar or in the handsomely comfortable dining room. The burger is a hands-down favorite, built on a bun or a baguette. Other dishes include the crisp calamari, Caesar salad and roast chicken. Brunch is a sophisticated yet boisterous affair.
