    Head to this lovely Brazilian restaurant for breakfast or lunch...but get there before 3 p.m. when they close! The always-busy spot offers traditional Brazilian cuisine, and even sweet treats like açaí with granola and banana. There's even a few shelves of preserves made from guava and other tropical fruits.

    This is a great place for a great burger in Santa Cruz. They have a unique menu and no hormone/no antibiotic beef. You can get your burger on a lettuce wrap or a gluten free bun if you desire. I also love the fries here - thin and crispy. I haven't tried the shakes, but they look delicious and it's ...

    Delicious ice cream. Daily selection is limited so need to go with the flow. A memorable favorite of mine is their barley ice cream as I was surprised by how good it was. After waiting in the long line outside you deserve a double scoop!

    Freezing my buns off waiting to be seated for brunch on a gloomy Sunday was so worth it. However, being sick the next day and coughing like a maniac was not the business. We sat at the best spot in the house with a window view of the street and panoramic view of the restaurant. This makes me happy because ...

    This is the place for chile verde lovers who like a little spiciness. Be sure to ask for some homemade corn tortillas to go with this house specialty. It is not unusual to wait for a table. Just expect it to be noisy and have a great time.

    This is the perfect little bistro in the sunshine! With a big patio you can grab a sandwich with your friends and also go wine tasting with the 10 or 12 winery tasting rooms located on the same property. There's strawberry rhubarb tart is amazing and mouthwatering.

    Fun place, with mostly good food. The thick cut, unpeeled fries are the best we've had outside of the UK, and the vegan milkshakes are great. I had the Santa Fe salad (without the cheese), and it was huge & very tasty. My partner had their vegetarian chili which was a little bland; very few beans or vegetables, & mostly ...

    I crave their crab openface sandwich weekly!! I need the recipe. They make some really amazing signature dishes and it's even better because the local waitstaff is so friendly and cares about each one of their patrons. Remember a cash only although they do have a cash machine on site.

    An abandoned warehouse-turned tropical island hideaway is the perfect setting for a casual restaurant and bar. Order your food when you first walk in and then settle down in one of the many eclectic seating areas indoors, or choose a spot on the outdoor (dog-friendly) patio. Heavy on the seafood (though tofu can be substituted in many dishes), one of ...
