Frequented by guests of the adjacent Best Western Plus Encina Lodge & Suites, Las Aves Cafe strikes a perpetually rich note with its earth-toned furnishings and tall windows reliably ushering in natural light, greenery, and a view of the hotel's outdoor pool. In the kitchen, inventive chefs specialize in melding the highlights of American fare with bold Mexican flavors, creating plates both festive in presentation and on the palate. Diners converse over breakfast, lunch, or dinner while seated in the lounge area or bar area, where the sound of tall mojitos and margaritas clinking fills through the room as guests toast to the kindly staff for making them feel welcome and to their suits made out of welcome mats.
Bath Street Inn, a Victorian bed and breakfast, tends to the tender feet of adventurers gallivanting around the nearby beaches, shops, museums, and wine-splashed countryside. The inn bathes guests in modern amenities and old-fashioned hospitality, with Groupon holders able to choose from any double-occupancy room in the 1890s House. After scratch 'n' sniffing each petal of the floral wallpaper in the Rose Room, guests can plant themselves in a lush queen-size bed. In the Garden Room, lodgers feel as if they are strolling through a French country garden teeming with wildlife and a modern double jacuzzi tub. Or, in the tranquil Partridge Room, a comfy handmade quilt, bounce-worthy king-size bed, and talon-footed soaking tub keep one-night residents company.

When creating a pie, cooks at Paesano's Pizzeria adhere to the tradition of NYC's pizza chefs from start to finish. They begin with fresh ingredients, kneading pizza dough from scratch. Next, they hand-toss the pies into circles ready for toppings. After slathering on freshly made sauce and toppings such as italian sausage or fresh mushrooms, they stone-bake the pizzas. You can buy it by the slice or by the pie, or opt for another Italian staple such as a hot sub or lasagna.
Owners Tom and Alin Prom source fruits and vegetables for their Thai and Laotian dishes from farmers' markets and harvest fresh lemongrass and galangal from the Alin's sister's local garden. The fresh ingredients come together in elaborate salads, curries, and meat dishes with the option of vegetarian substitutions. After flavor, presentation is paramount: papaya salad piles upward in a delicate tower, and pineapple fried rice arrives in a hollowed pineapple or in the midst of a pineapple bush. Floral arrangements, Southeast Asian artwork, and golden tablecloths complement the colors of vibrant lunch and dinner entrees.
Having mastered several subsets of Chinese cuisine, the chefs at China Pavilion couldn't fit all their entrees onto a single menu. So they created three: one with America's popular staples, one brimming with traditional platters, and one showcasing chef specialties. The first lines up dishes that are now familiar—sweet 'n' sour chicken and mongolian beef—as well as recognizable feasts served in new ways, such as the peking duck wrapped in crepes. More traditional and exotic options abound on the Chinese menu, such as pickled cabbage and pork noodle soup, or spicy king crabmeat sprinkled with basil and served in a clay pot. The chefs’ selections, meanwhile, range from classic to experimental: strips of Angus beef sizzle in oyster sauce, and garlic-pepper salt coats Alaskan halibut in a wok. China Pavilion’s full cocktail bar balances meals with citrusy sips of sour plum martinis, and on weekends, visitors can drop by for a dim-sum brunch that leaves tongues more satisfied than an astronaut wearing Moon Boots.
