Make good friends with the folks at Lucky Penny because, if you're staying here for a few days, you'll see them often. The place is just that addictive and utilitarian. Go for breakfast and you'll find lattes, eggs cooked and served in a cast iron pan, and sturdy pastries. But lunch, I think, is really where it's at, especially if you're fresh off a day of wine-tasting or surfing.
The pizzas are crackling—cooked in a wood-fired oven—and thin while the salads are fantastically large and fresh. Go for the market salad, especially if it's strawberry season.
