The Island Style cafe is located beside Lucas Wharf Deli which is not to be confused with Lucas Wharf Restaurant next door. You can dine outside on one of the picnic tables which is great on a sunny day and seems fitting for the location. There is also a place to buy fresh (mostly local) fish right behind the cafe.
I ordered the fish and chips and my dining companion had the crab sandwich. Both were decent and fit the "price/value" score lodged firmly in my brain these days. Fish and chips up the street set you back almost $20 but you got a chance to see Tippi Hedren who was making a local appearance. For those not in the know, Tippi Hedren starred in the Hitchcock thriller "The Birds" filmed in Bodega Bay (she's also Melanie Griffith's mom.)
Other things to do while on the coast: stop at Hog Island for oysters or clams to take home but be sure to bring along an ice chest (you can buy ice there.) If you're in the mood for a drive, head east to the Russian River area for some wine tasting. Hint: if you have a Visa Signature card you get complimentary (free!) tastings at many of the wineries.
