Food Scene

Amazing food and fun outdoor patio! Of all the restaurants in Fairfax this is probably the one we eat at most often. Pay at the counter, casual, delicious. Our favorites at the al pastor quesadillas (which looks like tacos) and the Three Sisters salad. If you like IPAs, get a Fieldwork beer on tap!

The best ice cream in the world! Don't skip this one. A teeny-tiny ice cream shop with the best organic and local ice cream. This a beloved Fairfax establishment. When you're trying flavors, don't skip the Honey Vanilla Lavender!

Cozy little wine bar with great food. Nice place for a more upscale night out. We like to go there for champagne and an appetizer or two. Only a block from the Casita!

Drinks & Nightlife

Relaxing, bohemian tea oasis with live music and open mic on Sundays. For an adventure, try the Kava! (Tastes like dirt, makes you feel relaxed and numbs your tongue)

This is THE spot to hang out after a hike or a bike ride. They serve sausages and have tons of beer on tap. Our favorite is the "Fieldwork IPA" (Or Henhouse IPA if there're out of Fieldwork)

Live music EVERY NIGHT. This is a bit of a dive bar. Good for a shot of whiskey and some loud music if that's what you're craving.

Parks & Nature

Trails you can get to from walking out the front door!
Deer Park Fire Road
Trails you can get to from walking out the front door!
This is an iconic local hike that takes you up a steep ravine on stone steps and a narrow trail, crossing wooden bridges and (in the winter) gushing cascades. Best to go early before the majority of people arrive, especially on weekends. To get there, drive up Bolinas-Fairfax road for about 10-15 minutes until you reach a lake (Alpine Lake). You'll cross a dam. Just after the dam, at a sharp bend in the road, you'll see a few parking pullouts at the trailhead. You can do this as an up-and-back hike or make a 7-mile loop. The loop is BEAUTIFUL if you have the time and energy. There's a map at the trailhead. Be sure to snap a photo of the map before you hike for reference.

Sightseeing

This charming town is about 25 minutes west of Fairfax, a beautiful drive. While you're there go to "The Bovine Bakery" for a pastry and "Toby's" for the best cappuccino in Marin county. Also check out the small bookstore next door to the bakery. If you're looking for oysters, go 10 minutes north from Point Reyes to "The Marshall Store."
