    Pizza My Heart is one of my favorite pizza companies. I have been a customer for 30 years and have never been disappointed. Love the selection, simplicity and freshly warmed slices. My favorite is pepperoni & mushrooms with oregano sprinkled on top.

    Paradise Beach Grille

    Very light and romantic atmosphere, with amazing views out over the water. The regular dinner menu may be a little pricey, so be on the lookout for nights that have dinner specials. Paradise Beach Grille also has a Happy Hour Monday-Friday, and is great place to meet up with friends for a few drinks.

    The Capitola Wharf is small but mighty with culture. The fishermen on this wharf have been here selling bate and renting boats for years, just walking by and listening to them talk about a catch of the day will make you feel like a local. There is a small store on the end as well as a restaurant that has ...

    Well known local bakery/deli with lots of sweet treats and sandwhich/salad options. Unfortunately whenever I go I always seem to pick the items that look mouthwatering, but always seem to come up short and IMHO taste pretty bland. My friends love this place and every once-and-awhile I go back hoping to find something I like, but so far I've had ...

    Margaritaville

    3.5
    4 reviews

    The food is fine but the views are better. The interior is heavily ocean/surf/tiki bar themed, in a very eclectic over the top way. I think they put so much into the concept and atmosphere of the place, that they had little left over for the food which seemed a bit like an afterthought. Unless you are looking for a ...

    do yourself a favor and don't enter. even the coffee house of the turtles would serve you faster. nothing was good. asking one of the regulars, she agreed with our assessment of the service. but said she learned to accept it. i don't. will find a proper coffee place on next visit.

    Stopped in here for a quick brew this past week. It's a small and cozy spot with a world class back patio (which is also small, so you either have it with an intimate group or you don't have it at all...). Small, but good, tap beer selection. Did I mention small? Everything about this place is small, even Capitola ...

    What can you say about Margaritaville....it's gimicky and pretty overpriced. But, if you go in with that in mind- it can be fun. The location is great and if you can nab an outdoor table, you'll love the ocean view. As for food, our entrees (enchiladas and tacos) were ok. Chips and salsa were tasty and fresh. But I love ...

    This hidden Capitola gem has great ambiance and an amazing menu. The food is fresh, mostly organic and VERY satisfying. I'm not a vegetarian, but if I could eat there every day, I might be able to swing it!

    This is what I call a 'designer' coffee shop, pure style and eye candy stuff. From nice coffee packages to really beautiful coffee related stuff for your house, everything looks nice here! Good music, internet connection and great service. And the coffee? Amazingly good.

    Wow, this burger is super tasty, I would say is one of the best I had so far. Meat that tastes like meat, full of juices and flavors, awesome. We also had a side of onion rings and sweet potatoes, really good. Another must go place for every burger lover out there!

    Another great Whole Foods easily accesible and with an amazing selection of goods. Conveniently located right off of 41st Avenue, I hit this place on the way up the coast before any hike in the Santa Cruz mountains.

    Their logo is literally a pink Godzilla riding a surfboard...this kitschy, cute, and delicious sushi place is great for a late afternoon bite, or a funky night out. The tuna poke is my favorite.
