Places to eat
The Monterey Peninsula is quickly growing its’ foodie reputation. Here are some places that Dr. Stephanie + Dustin enjoy:
A wonderful place for breakfast, lunch, or a quick coffee stop. Owned by the wonderful Alissa + Anthony Carnazzo, who are offering a fine-dining experience, without the snob. Chef Amalia creates seasonal dishes which showcase local produce + ingredients. Dustin’s staple is the Potato Latke with a side order of the oh-so-yummy biscuit, and Dr. Stephanie enjoys the breakfast scramble. When the mushroom-rice dish is back on the menu, that is her favorite lunch item.
Opened by our favorite Carmel Restaurant, Cultura, this Monterey location is a favorite place for our dinners. Dustin enjoys the Tacos, while Dr. Stephanie enjoys the Prawn Salad. The Ceviche is to-die-for! And, it is in walking distance to the Ouchie Office.
P.S..: This place is card-only.
Captain + Stoker
Their guatemalan beans are ground freshly every morning for our morning ritual, and a place for us to refuel on coffee or matcha. Dustin enjoys the macadamia nut milk matcha, while Dr. Stephanie sticks to her usual hot latte. Roare makes an incredible gluten-free vegan lemon bar, which is not-too sweet but oh-so refreshing.
Places to stay
For anyone visiting, there is a plethora of hotels to choose from. Here are a few places we have enjoyed:
Carmel valley ranch
We love spending time at Carmel Valley Ranch. A gem nestled in the Carmel Valley Hills, and will always have sun during the summer. With an organic garden, lavender, wine, honey, and their own goats, it offers a variety for the entire family. Resident turkeys and deer can be seen throughout the resort. You will find Dr. Stephanie lounging pool-side on her days off.
Smaller boutique hotel in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, within walking distance to all the tasting rooms, shops, and Stationaery. Offering a cheese + wine reception to be enjoyed by the fireplace.
Places to play
With access to wonderful parks and beaches, there is a lot for you to do.
