A menu of global fare praised by Good Times Santa Cruz features appetizers like wings dressed in mango-sambal sauce ($7), both sweet and spicy. A glass of beer or wine pairs well with the Cuban sandwich, which bookends carnitas-style pulled pork, ham, swiss, and pickles with a sourdough roll ($9.99). Four sweet breakfast specialties put a spin on classics, such as stuffed french toast, which, much like Old Faithful, gushes with seasonal fruit compote ($8.99).
Customers can also enjoy salads, sandwiches, and entrees, including the house-specialty Alaskan cod fish ‘n’ chips ($9.99) made with Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale beer batter, clam chowder ($7.50 for a bowl) served with a sour dough roll, and chicken pozole ($7.50 for a bowl).
The staff at the original location of Pleasure Pizza has spent more than 35 years perfecting their recipes, and they've passed the proverbial pizza torch to a new downtown Santa Cruz location. The restaurant also serves beer and wine along with sandwiches and salads, which chefs craft with an eye to locally sourced ingredients. And, of course, they have pizza—18 different kinds, each hand-crafted with homemade crust, daily.
