With it's classic checkered tablecloths, Night Light provides a casual atmosphere in which to enjoy its selection of fine wines and craft beers. Chef complements the drink selection with wild boar salami charcuterie, fresh-baked flatbread pizzas, and lobster mac and cheese with highly appropriate seashell pasta. The real star of the menu, though, is the wine list.
The owners have plenty of practice curating a selection of fine wines, garnered at their other establishment, Wellington's Wine Bar. They offer almost two-dozen varietals of wine by glass, with vintages from France, Napa Valley, Argentina, and Italy. They expand the collection with some premium bottle-only wines, such as Chat-en-oeuf's dry yet fruity 2010 Rhone Blend, or the black currant-enriched Nickel & Nickel 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon.

Stocked to bursting with handcrafted sandwiches, savory sides, and organic fair-trade coffee, this unassuming deli sates the appetites of on-the-go customers. A chalkboard menu presents the vegan breakfast sandwich with a colorful flourish of penmanship, along with the avocado hero, with the green fruit acting as "meat" amid ample veggies and cheese. Eco-friendly java from Olympia Coffee Roasting Company gives customers a welcome jolt to their morning in case they forget to kiss their toaster, and freshly squeezed juices and gluten-free pastries accommodate health-conscious breakfasts.
The Style Bar takes the notion of a blowout bar to the next level. While clients can, of course, get a beautiful blowout here, the stylists also specialize in updos, braiding, smoothing treatments, and extensions. Along with haircare, The Style Bar also beautifies nails with mani-pedis, gel manicures, and acrylics. Facial-waxing and brow-shaping services polish off looks.
The Lunch Box transcends grade-school memories of packed lunches, opting instead to fill bellies with piping-hot sandwiches and freshly tossed salads made with local, organic produce whenever possible. Sandwich fillings such as beet goat cheese and basil aioli treat tongues to uncommon flavors, with an option for gluten-free bread. They also offer fresh salads and house-made soups to round out lunchtime meals. Additionally, baker Melissa Geraghty fills the shop with freshly made treats and completes cake and cupcake orders for parties and especially long elevator rides.
The takeout joint does not offer sit-down service, making the shop a perfect stop before a hike to Muir Woods or picnic at Stinson Beach. Additionally, a rotating menu of dinners to go ease the stress of evening meals, with pickup and delivery options available.
Extreme Pizza is not your run-of-the-mill, ma-and-pa pizza shop. Here, the cooks pile their house-baked crusts with a slew of uncommon combinations, including the ginger-peanut-sauce-marinated chicken strewn across the Kickin’ Chicken pizza, which is also topped with peanuts, green onions, swiss, fontina, mozzarella, and fresh cilantro. The Paia Pie may seem standard with pineapple and Canadian bacon, but the addition of mandarin oranges and its mozzarella-cheddar blend make it more unique than a unicorn with two horns. As an alternative to the pies, freshly baked calzones, creatively loaded salads, monster subs, and chicken wings also populate the menu.
