The Pelican Inn, Muir Beach

It doesn’t get any more quaint than this tiny coastal inn serving hearty English comfort food in both their restaurant and bar. Classic dishes include shepherd’s pie, bangers & mash, and Guinness beef stew. Drooling yet? On a cold day you and your S.O. can snuggle up at the cozy bar or take a picnic out front on the green grass when the sun peeks out. Note: this gem is located right next to Muir Beach, so be sure to enjoy a swim or a hike to earn your meal and a pint! // 10 Pacific Way, Muir Beach, pelicaninn.com

Saltwater Oyster Depot, Inverness 

The Saltwater Oyster Depot, located in the heart of Inverness, is sure to sweep you off your feet. The drive from San Francisco along Hwy 1 is magic and full of breathtaking scenery as you pass through Stinson Beach and the eucalyptus groves. Add on a hike through Pt. Reyes National Seashore or a drive to nearby Point Reyes Lighthouse to make a day of it. The dishes at this charming little venue are simply delicious. You can tell that great attention is placed on the sourcing, preparation, and presentation of this ultra fresh food. The menu changes regularly, but one thing that is sure to be consistent and delicious, are the fresh local oysters and a fabulous glass of wine. // 12781 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Inverness saltwateroysterdepot.com

What about mouth-watering lamb bacon? Yep, they have that too! While you're at it, stock up your pantry with lots of meaty goodies from the butcher. Dine inside on an overcast day or if the sun is shining enjoy your delicious meal in the side garden. // 10905 Shoreline Hwy, Point Reyes Station, marinsunfarms.com

Parkside Café, Stinson Beach

Parkside Café is the perfect stop on a beach trip out to Stinson. It’s tucked behind the main street and has outdoor picnic-table dining as well as a restaurant inside. Whether you're craving a fruit smoothie, chai tea, ice-cream, a satisfying burger, or some yummy baked goods, you'll be sure to enjoy this casual café surrounded by a beautiful garden full of fragrant blooms. The best part is it’s located a hop, skip and a jump from the rolling waves along Stinson Beach. Burn off your feed with a splash in the ocean or an invigorating walk along the beach towards Bolinas. // 43 Arenal Ave, Stinson Beach parksidecafe.com

Fish, Sausalito

This amazing restaurant located among the docked boats in Sausalito serves the freshest seafood around with an entire menu of sustainably caught local fish. Popular dishes include chowder, ceviche, oysters, and “The Crab Roll.” Opt for the salmon salad (on the menu it's called The Saigon Salmon Sandwich - but ask to ditch the bread) for light and refreshing lunch option. Tip: skip the line and visit the side counter to pick up some extra fresh seafood to cook up at home. // 350 Harbor Dr, Sausalito, (415) 331-3474
