I love the hometown feel of this coffee shop! They serve their coffee in delightful large mugs. The motto of the shop is to inspire, build-up, build resistance, overcome, and collaborate SEVEN days a week! I ordered the avocado toast which was prepared with a generous helping of avocado and full of flavor. I hope that this coffee shop thrives!
Malibu Seafood is honestly one of my favorite stellar stops. The surroundings are beautiful, just across the street from the Pacific Ocean and with outdoor seating to enjoy the fresh air. The manager shared that the top 3 popular items are: 1) the fish & chips, 2) the clam chowder, and 3) the chicken strips (for the non-seafood crowd). I also enjoy the fried shrimp here as well. You really can't go wrong with anything that you order! Generous portions, absolutely delicious food, and reasonable prices. There is a special discount for the Pepperdine community, which is a kind gesture on the part of the management. I HIGHLY recommend that you try this stellar stop!
Looking for the best restaurant in Santa Barbara? Craving a taco? or an enchilada? Look no further! RUN to Rose Café. Just do it. You can't explain how crispy the taco is, or how they can afford to put so much guacamole on their signature Tacos Guadalajara, but go and try to figure it out yourself. You will leave feeling satisfied and full. The service is outstanding and the food is delicioso! Gracias, Rose Café! I'll be back for sure!
Enjoy the simple pleasures in life by stopping to enjoy an ice cream treat at Mister Softee in Camarillo. You will leave feeling happy and satisfied!
This was one of the best culinary experiences I have ever had! Every dish was absolutely delicious! This new concept for wine tasting is amazing - you purchase a wine card and add as much money to it as you wish. Then you swipe the card after selecting which wine you want to taste or drink at various machines throughout the restaurant. There are 1, 3, and 5 ounce pours that are priced according to the overall price of the bottle of wine. So, if a bottle of wine usually sells for $100, then you can have a 1 oz. taste of it for a few dollars, rather than paying for a full glass or a full bottle. It's genius! The overall combination of the wine machines, the exquisite ambiance, and the incredible food make this clearly a stellar stop!
Cici's Café: 30990 Russell Ranch Rd. Westlake Village, CA
The Chopper: This item on the Cici's menu allows people to combine a decadent pancake, waffle, or crepe, along with a protein. You can choose a delicious treat like the Strawberry Velvet pancakes (pictured here), along with two eggs and crispy bacon. This is large enough for two people to split and still feel good about themselves after an indulgent and delectable meal. Pictured here is my half of the meal. They even split it for you! This is one of my favorite ways to start the day!
