Mexican Restaurant

“ Farm-to-table selections ranging from fresh sustainable seafood to the finest hand-selected grass-fed beef and wonderful vegetarian dishes. There is full salad bar and gluten-free options, expanded cocktail menu. Recently opened and a FABULOUS addition to the San Lorenzo Valley. Be sure to check out the floor show schedule on the Web page. There is a great dance floor and a place to make wonderful memories.”

Café

“Great little local scene cafe with comfortable seating area and free wifi. Great coffee and loose leaf teas, too. But be warned about "Larry's Famous Chai"-- it's overloaded with cinnamon and not very chai-like, in my opinion. Do be sure to check out the local artworks and locally made jewelry and gifts. ”
