After the Hike: Local Favorites

Casa Nostra Beautiful ambience ! Awesome food ! Highly recommended :)
9217 Highway 9, Ben Lomond CA — (831) 609-6132
Ben Lomond Baking Co. Pasties are to die for. Good cup of Joe, too.
Rocky's Cafe Try the eggs Benedict on Sundays
6560 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-4637
Trout Farm Restaurant Really damn good bread pudding! (Although anything is made more delicious with a band playing Folsom Prison Blues while you eat.)
White Raven Great coffee and Larry's Famous Chai is the stuff of legends. Don't come here if you're in a hurry as the place moves at Felton speed.
6253 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-3611
Chopstix ambiance, price, service, food: top notch. Chopstix is the standard bearer for Chinese done right on the central coast. All dishes are available with vegan protein as a substitute for animal meat!
6249 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-9770
Taqueria Vallarta Get the torta!
6272 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-4264
Mountain Roasting Company Be sure to get whip with your mocha--it's real, homemade whipped cream!
Heavenly Cafe ABT Benedict is a good choice - for the brave there is the Elvis 2.
Falafel's Drive-In Banana milkshake is made with real bananas. Yum!!
Chubby's Diner Real potato fries. Closes at 3pm daily! Dinner menu is still available.
Kao Sook Thai Cuisine Plus side: place smells great, the service was excellent, and the Tom Kha Koong is delicious... Cons: Bathroom reeks of perfume, and the Panang curry is way too hot.
Erik's DeliCafe Farmers Market sandwich is the closest thing to vegan feeding you can find here. It's a very dairy driven establishment.
Bill's Cafe Parking sucks. There's a residential street (McDandiel) around the corner with lots 'O parking though.
302 N Bascom Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 287-2455
Alpine Inn Not into the fancy Palo Alto scene? Head up alpine to the Alpine Inn. Not so great food, a huge back yard, patio, and lots of cyclists. OH. AND A TRON MACHINE.
Fambrini's Terrace Cafe Be careful when paying cash - I have them a $20 but got change for a $10
Taiwan Restaurant Kung Pao chicken is great...
1306 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 289-8800
Aqui Cal-Mex I don’t understand why this place was fully packed. It was one of the worst food I had in a long time. Margarita on the rocks wasn’t bad. I guess people go there for the drinks. Food is disgusting!
1145 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 995-0381
Redwood Sandwich Co. BLTA and the chicken caprese are awesome.
