This is the 84th year the 101 Café has conducted business along the Historic Highway 101 in Oceanside. One reason for our longevity is that we have adapted to our customer’s needs since 1928. Beginning Friday January 6 we will have new Winter Hours from 7:00 AM until 2:00 PM every day and will continue until we announce our new Summer hours later in the Spring.
We have made some important changes in our kitchen and will provide the best customer service possible. We expect to make some menu changes soon and are working to make your experience at the Café a most pleasurable one.

Last year when I got a request for information about the Top Gun House I didn't give it much thought. I had to ask why they wanted the dimensions of the house so I did.
In response I was told that he was going to build a model of the house since it was going to be the 25Th Anniversary of the Top Gun Movie in 2011. At first I didn't think of the possibilities, but soon thought about the good PR our community could enjoy if we did a good job with it. Soon community leaders met to decide what to do. The rest as they would say is history. I sent the dimensions to Klaus Sonnenschein and began to plan what would become the 25Th Anniversary of the Top Gun Movie in Oceanside. We agreed that showing the movie in the Pier Amphitheater was a must and a Beach Volleyball Exhibition would round out two days of Top Gun. Once we decided on the Memorial Day weekend to produce the event then Klaus planned to be here in Oceanside to check it all out. What a pleasure to meet my new German friend. He was so much fun to learn everything about the Top Gun film. He claimed to have seen it 35 times before he came to Oceanside. As you might see we had over for a Beer-Butt Chicken BBQ. His command of English made it really easy to share our community and friends. My thanks to Klaus for his getting the Top Gun adventure going, I hold him responsible...

It gets more exciting everyday. Now there will be a Fighter Jet Flyover on Friday the 27th 7:00 PM just before the Free Top Gun Movie is shown at the Pier Amphitheater in Oceanside fight after the Marine Corps Band finishes its concert. We will see and feel the 'Need for Speed' first hand at this Friday night movie.
Saturday starts with Top Gun Beach Volleyball Exhibition/Tournament beginning at 11:00 AM next to the Top Gun House. There will be Beach Volleyball Pros like Karch Kiraly and Sinjin Smith, Marines, Navy and Local players all making up the teams for this Top Gun Tournament. Beginning at 2:00 PM there will be a Kids Clinic put on by the Pros until 4:00 PM. Keeping with the Movie Kansas City BBQ will be selling not only their great food, but also Top Gun Memorabilia.
Saturday night at 7:00 PM the Free Top Gun Movie will be shown again in the Pier Amphitheater. What a great way to begin your Memorial Day Weekend. For information call 760-721-1101

The 101 Cafe's waste/recycle hauler Waste Management now takes all of our recyclable items in our bins. This completely changes the amount we can now recycle. We will go from three trash bin pick ups per week to just one and we will pick up our recycle bin three times instead of just one. This effectively increases our recycling to seventy-five percent of our waste an amount of which makes us happy.
Oceanside has been in the forefront of recycling and now commercial recycling will help bring it closer to our new goals.
The following Businesses at El Corazon provide more recycling opportunities;
Moodys accepts concrete, asphalt and dirt.
Agri Service Incorporated accepts all green waste and provide mulch and wood chips to the community
It is that time of year where the Oceanside Historical Society host their walks in Historic Downtown Oceanside. There is no better way to learn about our community.
They are on the second Saturday of each month:
Beginning at 9:00 AM
Starting from the front of the Downtown Library at 300 North Coast Highway
It is a moderate walk that last a couple of hours. We always encourage question.
