Food Scene

New to Monterey,but A San Francisco North Beach classic. The pizza and pasta here are good...but a little too much food if what you want is to kick back with a cappuchino.

best pastry you can get without a flight to Paris. But, for strange zoning reasons they use paper cups. The main location on Munras is a longer walk but no paper cups! Love the Orange Brioche

Super casual, order at the counter. Best ever Jersey style italian subs. You won'r be able to eat one by yourself but it will be fun trying. Or get some of the best froies I have ever had and share your sandwich or have them wrap the 2nd half. They do that for me all the time. Been waning to try their sheesestaek but so hard to pass on a truly great sub...
