El Campeon is a restaurant / bakery / grocery / fresh-juice purveyor that offers great Mexican food at bargain prices. English is barely a second language here, but even those who do not speak Spanish will have little difficulty standing in line and pointing to the ingredients they want in their taco, torta, or burrito.
As they claim (and it's a claim to fame), Bay Cities Deli & Bakery is “Home of the Godmother." Stop by for Italian groceries from their well-stocked market, a Godmother sub, or a hot meal to go -- and be sure to finish it all off with sfogliatelle or torrone.
Sunlight streaming in the windows makes pale yellow walls glow; mellow jazz recordings waft through the dining room and into the palm-shaded patio; pretty waitresses in short-shorts carry magnificent granola, homemade buns and muffins at breakfast, and stupendous fish tacos for lunch. And so much more...
Super Sundaes! The menu divides them into "Sundaes for the Adventurous" (the really big ones), "Sundaes for the Sophisticate" (classic black-and-whites, black-and-tans), "Sundaes for the Sedate" (only a scoop or two), and "Create Your Own." From a repertoire of a couple dozen house-made ice cream flavors the stand-out is Swiss milk chocolate.
Gorgeous souffle pancakes, handsome scrapple, and potato pancakes that are a taste of heaven. All this plus fresh, fresh fruit and a wide array of freshly-baked pastries make Bette's a Bay area breakfast must.
Walking through the door of Jeanette's Edelweiss, you are instantly transported to a German Bierhaus. Every long wood table has a beer keg, there is a stage for the German Band that plays at night, and the menu options range from schnitzel and spatzle to pretzels, sausages, and apple strudel.
