When the Monterey County Herald's Sam Laage stopped by Dishes Bistro & Grill in September 2013, he said in a review that places such as Dishes prove that if you cook good food, have good service, and offer a comfortable atmosphere, people will come to you no matter where you are. Laage was perhaps most impressed by the Italian-style food at Dishes. He said the roasted medallions of pork tenderloin were "fork-tender but satisfyingly chewy" and called the oniony marmalade "inspired." One member of Laage's party was vegetarian and opted for one of the restaurant's vegetarian dishes, the ravioli al pesto, which Laage sampled and declared to have an "expertly balanced sauce."
Laage loved his food and the experience so much that he came back for a second visit. This time, he got to try the fresh blackened halibut and said "my mouth came alive with one taste." His final conclusion? "Do yourself a favor, check them out. GO!"
Although everyone knows that pizza fresh from a restaurant's kitchen is far superior to its grocery-store cousins, sometimes families don't have time to eat out. That's why Marina's Take 'N' Bake Pizza offers its pies not only to go, but uncooked, so they can be baked and eaten whenever a meal is needed. Staff members quickly assemble pizzas from the customizable menu, layering crusts with either red, herb, or creamy garlic sauce topped with a choice of ingredients, such as pineapple, jalapeños, bacon, and salami. The menu also includes a few fan favorites, such as the meat-stuffed pizza and the creamy garlic and bacon. Marina's doesn't stop at providing pizza, though. It also serves up salads and cookie dough to make an entire meal, ready after only a few minutes in the oven.
Daddy's City Diner served patrons three square meals a day. Ham, peppers, and cheddar cheese are tucked inside omelets, and walnuts are sprinkled on top of belgian waffles during breakfast hours. Later in the day, chefs build a number of handhelds, including burgers topped with bacon strips and hot dogs smothered in chili and melted cheese.
When a restaurant is named for a meal, you know it's their specialty. Such is the case at The Breakfast Club, which serves up home-style morning fare every day of the week. In addition to pancakes and french toast fresh off the griddle, breakfast choices include hefty four-egg omelets loaded with everything from spinach and mushrooms to Italian sausage and marinara sauce. But in cheerful defiance of its moniker, the eatery has also expanded into the tasty realms of lunch and dinner. Diner-style entrees such as classic BLTs, half-pound burgers, and chili cheese dogs arrive tableside, along with hearty steaks or chicken and waffles. Desserts continue the comfort-food tradition with strawberry shortcake and decadent milkshakes loaded with candy bar pieces or chips of imported icebergs. And The Breakfast Club caters to ears as well, occasionally hosting live musical performances on Friday and Saturday evenings.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
