Best Breakfast on the Beach – by Maureen H

Christmas Lobby Decor

At last, the cookbook is here!! All the recipes for breakfast that I have done for the last five years at On the Beach. I wrote this cookbook in recognition of the many guests who have said: “If you had a cookbook, I would buy it!” My forty years of cooking in cafes on the west coast as well as the Northwest have gone into the making of this. It is not just recipes, but allowing your own renditions of the basic ingredients to make it your own, which is the way they were developed. CABBI (California Association of Boutique & Breakfast Inns) posted my Bacon and Leek Quiche recipe and put it succinctly when they said it is not just about the Inn, but “beloved for its breakfast” If you have stayed at On the Beach, Bed and Breakfast you know that we cook from scratch, morning to evening, and it is not the kind of offering you get at big hotels. I invite you not only to check out the cookbook, but also see all the different, creative input from our talented chefs at On the Beach, Bed and Breakfast!

The cookbook will be available at the Front Desk at On the Beach and also via email order: MaureenHandshy8@gmail.com

When in Cayucos…

When in Cayucos…

-These are a few of our favorite things-

A perfect day starts with a morning walk on the bluffs north of town. While sipping on a freshly brewed cup of local coffee from On the Beach (SloRoasted.com – The Morning Fog Lifter) you can watch the waves crash into the shore and breathe in the fresh air. I prefer to go to the windmill and then thread back for some hot breakfast at the bnb (9am-11am). With a full belly and a warm heart, it’s time to spend a few relaxing minutes on the roof top deck. An invigorating shower is followed by some wine tasting at Cayucos Cellars, half way down the block (CayucosCellars.com). This sensory experience can only be followed by two tacos from Ruddell’s Smokehouse (SmokerJim.com) ; if in season the smoked ono is sure to delight. Lunch cannot be complete without a sweet treat from the Brown Butter Cookie Company (BrownButterCookieCompany.com).

After a quick siesta at the hotel and a cup of tea, the journey is back on for some more wine discovery and education at Full Moon Wine Bar (Full Moon Wine Bar and Bistro). A flight of wines and a cheese plate, while looking at the ocean, is just what the doctor prescribed to take you through to dinner time. The decision process involving the evening meal can always be daunting. Will it be Italian at Caffe della Via (CafeDellaVia.com), tantalizing French Style cuisine at Hoppe’s Garden Bistro (HoppesBistro.com) or a tasting menu at The Cass House (CassHouse.com)? The casual side begs the question of: Duckies Chowder House, Sea Shanty (SeaShanty.com) or Martin’s (Martins.com)?

If one’s solar plexus is longing for more, a late night snack will most likely be encountered at Schooners Wharf, alongside some delightful cocktails (SchonersWharf.com). The later night excitement along with live music (a couple of times a week) can be encountered at the Old Cayucos Tavern.

It is considered appropriate to enjoy the town as if you lived here, as long as you remember not to leave any trash behind, always wear a smile, and tip your servers.
Until the next time, we wish you health, happiness and loads of Cayucos fun time.
