After the Hike: Local Favorites

Tyrolean Inn Puppy longstocking works here
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.
9280 Highway 9, Ben Lomond CA — (831) 609-6552
Rocky's Cafe Try the eggs Benedict on Sundays
6560 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-4637
Taqueria Vallarta Get the torta!
6272 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-4264
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
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.
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 Sandwiches are solid but I wish you got a little more considering what you pay for them.
Redwood Sandwich Co. Awesome made to order sandwich. Friendly and fast service.
Auntie Mame's Biscuits and gravy are to die for. Great service too.
Alice's Restaurant For those times you want to feel transported to an alternate reality where everyone drives motorcycles and lives in the middle of an old growth forest.
Rumble Fish Try the bento box - #yummy
Habanero's There's an entire vegan section on the menu here. It had about a dozen options. Unparalleled!
Malone's Grille A Big Wave and patti's Caesar with some sweet potato fries thrown in for good measure !!! Life is good after a walk on west cliff ❤❤❤
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.
