Talk about hidden, you gotta be in the know to get into this Bay Area secret. The Elizabeth Street Brewery in Noe Valley is actually in one man’s garage. The pub’s owner doesn’t sell beer, though he serves it up and gladly accepts tips. It’s not open all the time, so Twitter and Facebook help the him get the word out about business hours.
2. Pine Cone Diner
Off the beaten path is one of the best breakfast’s you’ll ever eat according to one patron. The 50’s style Pine Cone Diner in Point Reyes Station serves up breakfast and lunch seven days a week. The Pine Cone Diner isn’t on the main drag in Point Reyes Station, so you’ll have to take some side roads to get there. It’s a family place, so if you’re a regular, the owner might one day make you a key.
With so many wineries in California, it’s hard to single one out, but our viewers and people here at NBC Bay Area seemed to think J. Lohr Vineyards and Wine deserved the honor. The winery operates out of San Jose, but also has a location in Paso Robles.
