The most common Internet password is “pizza123,” demonstrating America’s love for this Italian delight, as well as its complete inability to protect sensitive information. Discover the cause of America's greatest e-security risk with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of specialty pies along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare at Pleasure Pizza Eastside Eatery on 41st Avenue. This Groupon is good for dine-in only.
A sequel to the beachside original, Pleasure Pizza Eastside Eatery serves an expanded menu of behemoth breakfasts, chicken wings, and primo pizzas in a laid-back atmosphere. Served until noon, the breakfast menu boasts a hefty sextet of omelets that can be prepared as an egg or tofu scramble complemented by toast or tortillas with a choice flanking of potatoes or fruit ($7.99–$8.99). Coastal confusion may lead to ordering the Upper East Side blintzes, warm crepes stuffed with mascarpone and neufchatel cheeses and seasonal fruit under a raspberry drizzle ($7.99).
For lunch or dinner, Napa-bound noshers can taste the wine country chicken, thin-sliced grilled chicken smothered with provolone and balsamic-marinated onions and topped with lettuce, tomato, and dijonnaise on a ciabatta roll ($9.99). Build disproportionately muscular forearms by lifting the Popeye pizza, which combines spinach, feta, mozzarella, and tomatoes without red sauce ($20.95 for a 14"). Wings come in smoky barbecue, habanero jack, mango sambal, or classic Frank's hot sauce and are served with salsa or ranch dressing, which act as coolant for overworked tongue engines ($7).
Olive-, avocado- and saffron-soaked walls are peppered with sun-splashed landscapes, and pendant lights in shades of pumpkin wave around the ceilings. Oversized booths and flat-screen TVs satisfy the needs of enthusiastic sports fans and fervent infomercial aficionados.
- A vast array of pizzas also are on the menu at the new restaurant, which offers table service and a full wine and beer bar, along with a wide variety of gourmet items. – Terri Morgan, Capitola-SoquelPatch
- They have a very creative menu making it hard to make a selection because there were so many tasty looking options. – Brooks L., Yelp, 2/6/11
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.
