Try Buzz’s Crab Shack in Redding—-AWESOME Ciopinno!–and lots of other great seafood dishes—they drive to the coast every night–so the fish is fresh and tasty.[:p]–and about Granzell’s in Williams—very good sandwiches–i favor the prusciutto myself–my wife loved their turkey and avocado—they also have a great beer/ale selection–including a few hard ciders and a full bar in the back.
Granzella’s, in Williams, downtown, lets you try the many different olives. Great little stop, especially in the sweltering heat – awesome air conditioning, decent food.
I’m not sure but I think you may be thinking of The Olive Pit in Corning, California. Free samples of the merchandise and a wide and wonderful variety of olives.
I think Williams is the olive capital ofthe world. Go downtown and check out the place that lets you try the many different olives. Can’t remember the name.
I like the Hi-Hat Cafe in Weed, California and any of several muffin and expresso shops in the new age mecca of Mt. Shasta.
I would recommend the Black Sheep in Downtown Ashland. They have these wonderful scones that they make to order (about a 15 min wait)to start off your meal.
We like to stop at Granzella’s in Williams, CA. Italian deli that’s about as good as you’re going to get on the West Coast.
We regularly travel this route and would love to find some good road food spots along the way. We don’t mind traveling 5 miles or so off the highway. It seems to be pretty much a food waste land, but maybe the Road Foodies can point us to some spots worth a detour. The best we have found is the Cornerstone Bakery in Dunsmuir–a fabulous breakfast spot.
