For foodies who need their daily dose of caffeine, this place won't disappoint. Featuring lovingly roasted beans prepared by knowledgeable baristas in a shop with a warm wooden ambiance, there's no better way to start your day.
Locals love this place, and it's on the must-eat list of many frequent visitors to Monterey. The fluffy pancakes and tasty egg dishes here make for the perfect first stop on your all-food, all-the-time tour of Monterey!
Right on the municipal pier, this local eatery serves up great seafood for locals and visitors alike.
Although Monterey isn't necessarily as famous for its wine as Sonoma and Napa, that doesn't mean its local offerings aren't just as great. This vineyard specializes in Spanish and Portuguese varieties, and is well worth a visit.
Old school fine dining with a wonderful view, Chart House makes a fine steak to your liking, and of course, has outstanding seafood as well.
Sour gummies, saltwater taffy, Red Vines, fudge... The list could go on forever. Just be sure to save some for your trip home!
