After the Run: Local Favorites

Casa Nostra Beautiful ambience ! Awesome food ! Highly recommended :)
9217 Highway 9, Ben Lomond CA — (831) 609-6132
Ben Lomond Baking Co. Pasties are to die for. Good cup of Joe, too.
9280 Highway 9, Ben Lomond CA — (831) 609-6552
Taqueria Vallarta Get the torta!
6272 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-4264
White Raven Great coffee and Larry's Famous Chai is the stuff of legends. Don't come here if you're in a hurry as the place moves at Felton speed.
6253 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-3611
Chopstix ambiance, price, service, food: top notch. Chopstix is the standard bearer for Chinese done right on the central coast. All dishes are available with vegan protein as a substitute for animal meat!
6249 Highway 9, Felton CA — (831) 335-9770
Mountain Roasting Company Be sure to get whip with your mocha--it's real, homemade whipped cream!
Heavenly Cafe ABT Benedict is a good choice - for the brave there is the Elvis 2.
Falafel's Drive-In Banana milkshake is made with real bananas. Yum!!
Chubby's Diner Real potato fries. Closes at 3pm daily! Dinner menu is still available.
Kao Sook Thai Cuisine Plus side: place smells great, the service was excellent, and the Tom Kha Koong is delicious... Cons: Bathroom reeks of perfume, and the Panang curry is way too hot.
Los Gallos Taqueria They have an extended vegetarian menu and vegans can order anything there sans cheese/sour cream. Taco salad was tolerable but not worth another visit. The chips and salsas lacked character. One
Erik's DeliCafe Sandwiches are solid but I wish you got a little more considering what you pay for them.
Bill's Cafe Parking sucks. There's a residential street (McDandiel) around the corner with lots 'O parking though.
302 N Bascom Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 287-2455
Thai Heart A real hidden gem in Scotts Valley. Pad Thai, pad see ew, curry and spicy soup are delicious. Staff is wonderful!
Alpine Inn Not into the fancy Palo Alto scene? Head up alpine to the Alpine Inn. Not so great food, a huge back yard, patio, and lots of cyclists. OH. AND A TRON MACHINE.
Taiwan Restaurant The fried eggplant appetizer wit garlic sauce is delicious!
1306 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 289-8800
Fambrini's Terrace Cafe Be careful when paying cash - I have them a $20 but got change for a $10
Redwood Sandwich Co. Awesome made to order sandwich. Friendly and fast service.
Aqui Cal-Mex I don’t understand why this place was fully packed. It was one of the worst food I had in a long time. Margarita on the rocks wasn’t bad. I guess people go there for the drinks. Food is disgusting!
1145 Lincoln Ave, San Jose CA — (408) 995-0381
