We love the ocean…not sure if you’ve noticed that before, but it’s both of our favorite place to just “go” to. The ocean is peaceful, yet
powerful; beautiful, yet dangerous; familiar, yet mysterious. There’s definitely a pull there, whether it’s the tide or just an emotional kind of thing, we both feel excited to go, at peace when we arrive, and sad to leave the ocean. So, one of our favorite ocean spots is Cayucos, California. It’s the quintessential funky beach town located right between Morro Bay and Cambria on the Central Coast. Smack dab in the middle of Cayucos is the BEST spot ever…Schooner’s Wharf!
Why is Schooner’s Wharf so great?
Schooner’s has a little something for everybody. Besides great food, tasty drinks, and a million-dollar view, they’ve got the perfect “vibe”! We always sit in the bar, but they’ve also got great patio and indoor restaurant seating. The bar looks out over the beach and the Cayucos pier, and you can almost always find a group of locals hanging out playing dice or chatting about the scene. If you’re lucky, you might even catch the local pirate, Randy who likes to frequent Schooner’s for a cocktail or two…don’t worry, he’s a friendly one. There might be a football game on, or a lively group of tourists taking pictures of the dolphins in the waves, but there’s always something to look at!
Okay, now that we’ve convinced you to check them out for their vibe, here’s some pics of their food for you to drool over…
It’s hard to sit by the ocean and not order a cup of clam chowder, right? Well Schooner’s is awesome; tons of clams and all the other right stuff.
After the Clam Chowder came some incredible Ahi Tuna & Fresh Veggie Egg Rolls, served with Wasabi and Spicy Chili Dipping Sauce. Ummm, okay, these were out of control delicious!!!
Then came the Baja Shrimp Quesadilla that had fresh Pico de Gallo and Spicy Jack Cheese, all grilled up inside a tomato tortilla.
So, again, we encourage to find your favorite place…wherever that might be. Just be sure that place feeds not only your belly, but your soul! Sit, relax and take it all in! We sure did!!!
