Food

Grab a cup of coffee and walk to Pleasure Point. I recommend you order it from your phone here just before you leave and it will be ready within a minute or two of your walk there or be prepared to wait.

GREAT ambiance for couples (and surprisingly affordable) recommend reservations and ask for a seat out front. They also have a free car service to come collect you.

Craft ice cream, flavors always changing but my favorite is their mint chocolate chip in a waffle cone and Teymur goes for anything chocolate.

You don't go for the ambiance but the food is best Chinese food I've found in the area -- this is a favorite takeout spot of ours. Try the shrimp wontons!

City/town information

Enjoy the pier, wine, food, art, shops, or surf. Less than a mile walk or I recommend bicycles instead of driving because parking is a nightmare (especially on the weekend)

Enjoy the drive and stops along the way. Our secret hideout is grabbing a beer at Big Sur River Inn & Restaurant and going out back to sit in the chairs in the river. Don't give our secret away! :)

Sightseeing

Great for couples or a family if you're looking for a bit more excitement and noise. The restaurants on the boardwalk are very good and there's a wine bar at the end we really enjoy.

Our favorite walk is early morning with our tea or a cup of Verve coffee or just before sunset with a cone of The Penny Icecreamery mint chocolate chip, but it's perfect all day.

Quaint village larger than Capitola Village with great food, art and wine. Make a trip in the early afternoon, stop by the beach, go to the village and do some shopping and have dinner. Dinner reservations highly recommended.

Wellness

You don't go for the ambiance.. BUT the lady massage therapist there is AMAZING. I've tried a few spas and massage salons around here and there are many better places if ambiance is important to you, but she is by far the best massage therapist I've had for deep tissue and an hour is $80!
