Pescadero Day Trip

  • Duarte’s (3.5 stars on Yelp) — This Pescadero institution tavern/restaurant is known for their amazing pies (especially the Olallieberry Pie (pronounced oh-LA-leh or oh-LA-lee berry) which won “Best Pie” from Life Magazine. Ignore the 3.5 star Yelp rating. This place is worth a trip.
  • Mercado and Taqueria de Amigos (4.5 stars on Yelp)
  • Made in Pescadero (Ken the owner curates local wood/furniture — beautiful crafts.
  • Topia — An antique store with an eclectic mix of new and old stuff in a converted farm house. We bought a hat and 2 scarves.
  • Arcangeli Grocery Co — Norm’s Market — Great spot to pick up snacks and a picnic (e.g. for the beach). We got the Artichoke Bread fresh out of the oven which was fun to chew on. We also bought a mini Olallieberry Pie (a variant of blackberry and a Pescadero specialty). This was one of the tastiest pies we ever had, rivaling the Olallieberry Pie we’ve had at Duarte’s.
