My favorite breakfast places

This is the perfect place to start your day! The selection of their pastries and savoy bread is excellent, and we never miss their croissant & latte.

This place is a local's favorite. Lots of deli selections and good, happy vibes. I was told by my friend about their homemade Burrito that is often out of stock before noon. When we head surfing to Manresa beach in the morning, we always drop by and grab a few of those and head to the beach.

Places walking distance

Everyone who visits Aptos may swing by this spot to choose the best scoop among the variety of flavor options! Their Ice cream is decent, nothing special to be frank ;) but made us happy that we have this place within walking distance, and made our children happy.

Casual Mexican in the neighbor. "Manuels" seems more popular in a way but we like Casa Rossy's friendly vibes and LOVE their shrimp & carnitas tacos. 🌮

A few steps from our house and you can grab these burgers & flies. We tried a few times, not too bad but this may not be our first choice.

Local thrift store. They run the store in Capitola for 65 (!!) years then move to Aptos. The selection of used clothes and accessories, and ceramics are unique and mint condition. You might find something charming to bring back home at this shop to remember your travel in Aptos.

Casual Lunch / Dinner places

Nice local foods which doesn't cost too much $$$$
Great beers and BBQs! Kids & pets friendly, and the outside space is also very nice on a sunny day.

Food scene

Definitely the pricy side of the restaurant in Aptos. Michelin Chef/Owner and their pizza got great reviews and I haven't tried it yet but people say their truffle pasta (tajarin) is fantastic!

Comfortable outdoor space, mostly adults but kids can go too. It's a little louder & on the pricy side. The food quality is great, consistent, fresh, and juicy. According to my husband, it's too much cheese but I think it's still OK.

Cakes!

Local's "go-to" place to get cakes, pastries and a nice deli menu!! We also love "The farm bakery" in Aptos, but if you can swing by Capitola, it's worth checking out & try :).

Need boba tea?! My kids love their boba and we kept coming back to grab it. They have so many flavors to try but I love the original black milk tea at the end ;).

Small, local, always good vibe grocery store :). They offer lots of eco-friendly, vegan products. It's next to my fav. "Companion" bakery so it's very convenient to do two shopping in one car drive!

A bit far but always easy to park. It's a pricy side of the store compared to other grocery stores (Natural food or New leaf) but you see different selections of products which is fun!
