“The Clam Chowder here is simply the best, great views of the Harbor, been here many times and always a great experience, one of the best places to eat in Half Moon Bay ... it's got that coastside ambience perfected!”
“25-min drive: Panoramic view & sunset from CONSERVATORY, NAVIO & OCEAN TERRACE -Perfect for meetings, celebrations, romantic getaways, or just afternoon teas! -beautiful beach -Amazing bagpipe musicians enhance the settings playing an hour & half before sunset -Navio is the formal restaurant (better to make reservations on weekends) -Personal favor: CONSERVATORY Causal; no need to make reservation; amazing sunset view; organic and sustainable ingredients (try to avoid the lunch and dinner rush hours on weekend) -Parking: *a small public parking lot before you reach the hotel guard (free), but it is usually full during peak hours on weekends *a public parking garage inside the hotel property (free); the guard will provide you the access code if you are visiting the beach. * valet parking $15 (can be validated at one of their restaurants or bars) ”
“The coastal trail runs the length of the coast from the end of our street all the way down to the harbor. Recommended for morning or evening runs/walks and access to great beaches and coastal views. Keep an eye out for migrating whales!”
“This fishing town is a great stop for lunch as you make your way south from SF. Plenty of decent options for fresh fish, crab, oysters, or clam chowder ”
“Really good food, almost everything can be made vegan! Moles, enchiladas, homemade soups, salads and fish, yummy! Order at the counter and go find a seat - I love sitting at the high bar overlooking the sidewalk....or sitting in the private and sunny back patio. A treasure in our little town.”
“"Coffee. Community. Jazz. We have created a place where people come to share ideas, great coffee and deliciously fresh, healthy food. We care about people, the environment, quality and taste. That's why we buy fair trade, organic coffee from America's Best Coffee Roasting Company, right here in the bay area."”
