Food & Dining
We are literally surrounded by great food on the Central Coast, from the simple pleasure of fresh local produce picked right before dawn to fresh-caught seafood from the ports that line the coast.
You’ll find our flavorites for the best take-out places, ethnic restaurants, and coffee shops as well our recommendations for special-occasion dining.
And in case you want to pick up some local produce and provisions, we include tips on visiting farmer’s markets. We also share places to find some great gluten-free fare.
