Car: Recommended

San Benito house deli on Main street. Sandwiches. If it's warm, eat them in the courtyard, if cold you can eat them in the bar area. Super cheap and super yummy and pretty busy on the weekends. My favorite is the egg and avocado on the walnut bread. A half sandwich is generally all an adult really needs. www.sanbenitohouse.com

Cetrella - super duper Italian and steaks. Renovated warehouse is super romantic but probably not where you want to take the kids. On Main street at Spruce so very close. Closed Monday. www.cetrella.com

Cameron's Pub - about a half-mile south of the house on 1. Awesome shepherd's pie and can't go wrong with just about anything else. Lots of beers, too. www.cameronsinn.com

3-Zero cafe - it really is the HMB airport a few miles north of HMB on 1. Think Kerbey Lane and Magnolia wrapped into one with an airplane theme. Lunch or breakfast. AWESOME! www.3-zerocafe.com

Sam's Chowderhouse - north of HMB on 1. Big, seems touristy but great food. Lobster rolls rock, great chowder, great crab cakes, awesome lobster stuffed prawns wrapped in bacon. www.samschowderhouse.com

Barbara's fishtrap - some of the best seafood on the coast.

just north of Sam's on 1. lunch or dinner, cash only and on weekends they've got outdoor counter service. www.barbarasfishtrap.com

Alice's Restaurant - Yes, THE. It's not really in HMB - it's in Woodside and about a 30-ish minute drive depending on traffic and how aggressively you drive. The food is excellent and the drive is half the fun. Take CA-92 back toward 280 but at the top of the hill (that's what they call it there) turn right on Skyline blvd. On the weekends, Skyline is the place you're most likely to see a Ferrari. Drive 12.4 miles thru the redwoods and it's at the intersection with CA-84 (La Honda Road). www.alicesrestaurant.com

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are Texans who love California's water, mountains, and people.

Why the Owner Chose Half Moon Bay, CA, USA:
Built in 1920, the home at 307 Magnolia was in a little fishing development called Arleta Park and wasn’t a fancy place at all. It was a stop on the Ocean Shore Railroad which connected Santa Cruz to San Francisco from 1908 to 1921. The old Depot is now the home of a friend. Later, the city of Half Moon Bay put their dump on the coast between this community and the water. An unintended consequence of the dump location is that the space can now never be developed. Long since disused as the community dump, it’s beautiful coastal open space.
