    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.

    Margaritaville

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    Excellent Turkey Burgers called the "Gobbler" is my favorite at this locally acclaimed Burger joint. There are two of them, one on 41st and one near the Santa Cruz Harbor at Seacliff Ave.

    I'm not a vegetarian, but I love Dharma's. The smoothies are amazing, the salads huge, and the Thai-style dishes with tofu are wonderful. It's a very casual place, but really great fresh quality food. Also a good place to eat if you have any sort of special diet, like gluten free. The staff know exactly what's in each dish.

    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.

    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.

    Chill Out Cafe

    Nice size breakfast burrito that's perfect after a nice surf session. I recommend the bacon avocado or the spinach scramble burrito.
