Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Café
$$
“Housed in two historic bungalows, this cottage-like café serves large plates of gourmet American classics—with breakfast items served until 5pm, salads, skillet-roasted chicken, hot paninis and more—loved by locals. Brunch is one of the most popular times to see and be seen here, especially out on that killer patio, so be sure to grab Alcove’s very own chocolate bars and some baked goods from the pastry window while you wait for a seat. The adjacent Big Bar offers hand-crafted cocktails, craft beers and fine wines alongside reinvented bar food, not to mention some of the most fun themed beverage menus in town.”
