Only coming in for a meal at Marina Cafe? The Cafe Pass was created to encourage customers to come in and enjoy a meal at the beautiful Casitas Marina Cafe. Upon entering the Recreation Area in your vehicle, tell the gate staff you are only here to eat at the Cafe. You will be given a special yellow pass with a 1 1/2 hour time limit, and restricted parking at the Santa Ana Ramp lot. Keep the pass displayed in your windshield and bring the detachable stub into the Marina Cafe. Your gate fee ($10 or $15 dependent on time of year) will be used as credit on a dollar for dollar basis toward your meal.

When coming for the day, allow enough time to play.
