Really good food, almost everything can be made vegan! Moles, enchiladas, homemade soups, salads and fish, yummy! Order at the counter and go find a seat - I love sitting at the high bar overlooking the sidewalk....or sitting in the private and sunny back patio. A treasure in our little town.

OK, so this one may be the busiest of the spots found in the rural area along the coast - if you catch on a quiet day, you'll discover why it got so darned popular. They grown veggies to put in their salads and bloody marys!! Pickled long beans! yum! We love the artichoke soup (creamy - not vegan) and the green chili soup. They have some nice fish dishes too.

Looking for sea life? Listen for the seals and watch the kayakers and paddle-boarders! Looking for fresh fish to grill? Walk out to the pier and read the white boards that list the boats that are selling their catch - cod, crab, halibut, etc...the white boards will tell you where to find the boats that are selling their catch.

This Bakery has been here for a long, long time - the locals call it "Norms," so don't call it by it's real name - Arcangelis - the bread they bake daily is to die for...our favorite is the herb sourdough - buy two loaves because one will be gone by the time you make it to your destination. They have a deli with really fresh ingredients. They make their own sauces, relishes - a great place to stock up on gifts for making gift baskets. Take a sandwich to the beach or go walk along the board walk in the marsh - amazing birding down there!
