Located about an hour south of San Francisco on the Pacific coast, in the quaint fishing village of Pescadero, family-owned Duarte's Tavern (pronounced "dew arts") is a true off-the-beaten-path treasure. Officially named "An American Classic" by the James Beard Foundation, the tavern lies a ways inland, past dunes and marshlands, at a dusty little intersection. Inside, you'll find bikers, fishermen and day-tripping families mingling over pints of beer, bowls of world-famous Crab Cioppino and plates of award-winning Olallieberry Pie. Don't forget to stop by the souvenir table for a jar of homemade jam or a hooded logo sweatshirt (essential for a windy afternoon on the beach just down the road). See website for menu, history and online shopping.
Who doesn't love a plateful of enormous oysters? Their homebaked, hot out of the oven sourdough bread is an entire reason to visit. So if you're near Pescadero, a trip to Duarte's is a given. Just be sure to save room for the ollalaberry pie!
Worth the drive over the mountains to the Coast just for their Cream of Artichoke, no wait, Cream of Green Chile Soup! Some people can't make up their minds and just order half and half! Ambience at Duarte's is a bit of a stretch, but the people that work there are what make Duarte's the friendliest place on the coast. Service is relaxed and non-hurried. Food choices are wide and lean toward the fresh seafood, of course. Prices have been raised, but where haven't they been? It's a legend and the soup is to die for.
For a romantic day, take your best friend for a drive to the coast on a rainy, cool, day. Stomp around some of the local beaches: Bean Hollow, Davenport or if lotsa time, Ano Nuevo and check out the elephant seals (what an aphrodisiac!) then, when your hungering, head to the Tavern and warm up with a glass of wine, a bowl of cream of artichoke or green chile and some warm yummy crunchy bread. Or if you're more in the mood for sweets, their pies are legendary. Especially the ollalieberry and remember to kick back and remember how good life is!
They have real pie. Okay, yeah the food is pretty darn good, but dang it they have real homemade pie! Do not skip the olallieberry pie. Pie like grandma made.
Soup and then pie is my favorite afterbeach meal.
Family-run tavern that has been around for over 100 years. Very casual, small-town ambiance. Good food, featuring local ingredients like artichokes, seafood, and olallieberries. Try the artichoke soup, crab cioppino (as long as you don't mind the work), blackened halibut. Must finish with their award-winning olallieberry pie a la mode.
Located in Pescadero, Duarte's is just a short drive from the beach. Once your done with the sand and surf and wind (this is northern CA!), you can stop by Durate's for hot artichoke soup, seafood, and their famous pies. The food is good but perhaps more impressive is the history and setting in small town Pescadero. It feels like you've stepped back in time and are no where near bustle of the big city.
