Best of Santa Cruz County 2018: Food & Drink

The best restaurants, happy hour, seafood, brunch, desserts and more

Dharma's won Best Vegetarian food in Santa Cruz County.


Best Bread

Companion Bakeshop

  1. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz Companion BakeshopCompanion was founded in 2006 by self-taught baker Erin Lampel, opened its Westside location in 2010, and now has about 30 employees.
  2. Lampel found her “companion” Jeremy in 2008. He is a coffee lover, business partner and co-manager, and also works full-time as a registered dietitian.
  3. Their most popular bread is their Light and Fluffy Super Sourdough; it sells out often and is also their largest loaf.
  4. The bakery offers workshops that teach homebakers how to make a variety of breads and pastries at home.
  5. Companion also prepares their own spreads—including hummus, cream cheese and avocado—and house-made preserved items such as marmalades, jams and quick-pickled radishes and beets. ANDREW STEINGRUBE


Best Breakfast San Lorenzo/Scotts Valley

Mollie’s Country Café

  1. Mollie’s is a dog-friendly restaurant that encourages customers to bring their pups with them to the outside patio.
  2. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz Mollie's CafeBreakfast is served all day; they are most famous for “The Hungry One” breakfast that includes three pancakes; two eggs any style; a choice of bacon, sausage, or ham; and potatoes.
  3. The tri-tip-steak-and-egg breakfast is also very popular.
  4. There is an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet on Saturdays and Sundays.
  5. The popular Scotts Valley café supports many local charities and organizations. AS


Best Burrito

Planet Fresh

  1. Planet Fresh offers not only traditional burritos like chicken, steak and pork, but also barbecue and Cajun-style burritos as well.
  2. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz Planet FreshIn Spanish, the word “burrito” means “little donkey,” and there are multiple theories as to the exact origin of the food item and how it got its name.
  3. Their most outside-the-box burrito is the Pacific Rim ($8.75), which features fresh chicken breast with zucchini, corn, carrots, marinated shrimp, and fresh ginger teriyaki pineapple sauce.
  4. They recently started offering bottled beer.
  5. Besides burritos, Planet Fresh also offers quesadillas, tostadas, burrito bowls, nachos, and tubular, crispy rolled tacos. AS


Best Date Night Capitola


  1. If a couple in their 20s had their first date at Shadowbrook when it opened in 1947, they would now be in their 90s today (and hopefully still together).
  2. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz ShadowbrookThe owners of the Capitola fixture continue to modernize and renovate the restaurant’s one-of-a-kind atmosphere, staying current while retaining a classic feel.
  3. Shadowbrook offers complimentary shuttle service in an old-school taxi cab every night of the week within a three-mile radius.
  4. Many famous athletes and celebrities have dined at Shadowbrook over the years.
  5. Shadowbrook was originally one dining room with fewer than 10 tables, and now features seven dining rooms, three patios, and a bar and lounge. AS


Best Deli


  1. Zoccoli’s was opened in 1948 by two Italian immigrants, Robert and Augusta Zoccoli, in the same downtown location where the deli still resides.
  2. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz ZoccolisIt is still operated by the Zoccoli family, now in its third generation of owners, making it one of the oldest family-run businesses in all of Santa Cruz.
  3. The deli also serves pastas—including spaghetti, lasagna, and ravioli—with homemade sauces that draw rave reviews from locals.
  4. Zoccoli’s uses a famous, authentic, and highly secret family recipe for tiramisu, a classic Italian dessert that is one of their most popular items.
  5. In Italian, “tiramisu” means to “pick me up”—which is literally what its mixture of espresso-soaked lady finger cookies, mascarpone cheese, eggs, sugar, and cocoa will do. AS


Best Falafel

Falafel House

  1. Falafel House has been serving Middle Eastern food favorites at its current location for 21 years, and for 35 years total in Santa Cruz.
  2. FoodDrink-Falafel-HouseQuick primer on a falafel wrap: it’s basically a vegetarian Middle Eastern sandwich in a pita featuring falafel balls—which are made of fried chickpeas and spices—along with tahini sauce and vegetables.
  3. Tahini sauce is a condiment made from sesame seeds that typically also contains garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and yogurt. Falafel House also makes a non-dairy tahini.
  4. Also on the menu is baba ganoush, which is not only fun to say, but also an eggplant dip flavored with tahini, garlic, yogurt, lemon juice, and special seasonings.
  5. In addition to their famous falafels, the longtime downtown spot also offers salads, veggie burgers, hamburgers, gyros and chicken shawarma. AS


Best Greek


  1. Vasili’s has been offering fresh and authentic Greek food at its Mission Street location since 1991.
  2. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz Vasili'sThe most popular menu items are gyros and souvlaki plates (grilled meats, salad, rice, pita, and tzatziki), and they also offer gluten-free and vegan items as well.
  3. Their Saganaki dish is Kasseri cheese (similar to a softer parmesan) that is breaded and fried in butter (!), splashed with brandy (!!), and served literally flaming at the table (!!!).
  4. “Opa” is the Greek equivalent to the English “cheers” or “hooray,” and is a good word to use when enjoying their selection of wine and beer—or when you hear a glass break.
  5. Vasili’s offers a happy hour Monday through Thursday from 3-6 p.m., with half off all appetizers and $2 off wine and beer. Opa, indeed. AS


Best New Restaurant

Sotola Bar & Grill

  1. Sotola was founded exactly one year ago by Adam and Ashley Bernardi.
  2. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz Sotola Bar & GrillThe restaurant’s name comes from a combination of Capitola and Soquel—two villages which back in 1929 flirted with the idea of merging townships.
  3. Chef Anthony Kresge once worked at the original India Joze restaurant.
  4. The cypress wood dining tables in the restaurant are handmade by Adam Bernardi.
  5. Sotola is perched over the confluence of two bodies of water—the Soquel Creek estuary and the Monterey Bay. CHRISTINA WATERS


Best Pizza Watsonville

Cassidy’s Pizza

  1. Best of Santa Cruz County 2018 Best of Santa Cruz Cassidy'sNot much has changed in the décor or on the menu at Cassidy’s since it first opened in 1970—and loyal customers like it that way.
  2. This old-school pizza place is known for focusing on consistent quality rather than trends.
  3. They roll their own dough, shred their cheese, and cut fresh vegetables for their salad bar daily.
  4. Much of the staff has been with them for more than 10 years.
  5. Cassidy’s best-selling pizza is the classic combo. ANDREA PATTON


Best Vegetarian


  1. Menu rule of thumb: If it had a mother, Dharma’s does not serve it.
  2. Dharma’s is where vegan doubt goes to die: 95 percent of its vegetarian menu is actually vegan.
  3. For the first five years of its vibrant life, Dharma’s was called McDharma’s—melding its concept for fast food and the sanskrit word for virtue. Blind to the virtue side of things, McDonalds sued.
  4. The Dharma’s dining room is a cell-phone free zone. It’s a plant-lined refuge from your ever-terrifying Twitter feed, where the ancient art of real, face-to-face interaction can be practiced—possibly even with Kenny Loggins, one of Dharma’s celebrity followers.
  5. The ultimate comfort food for political times can be found here, in the form of, perhaps, the Big Cheese, Bo Thai, or, our editor’s favorite sandwich of all time, the Nuclear Bluff. MARIA GRUSAUSKAS
