I know not everyone plans ahead like I do, but I HIGHLY recommend making reservations if possible. I know I hate having to wait for my morning coffee and mimosa, so do your future self a favor so you can by pass the waiting list.
I'm not kidding about getting reservations, especially to Jake's. It's a top spot in a cozy location. Just get the bottle of Processco, you deserve it. I dream about the Jake's Turkey Sandwich! You have to get a piece of cake, they come fresh from the Over the Rainbow Bakery and are scrumptious! This will become one of your go to spots after one trip!
This is a spot that does NOT take reservations and the hostess rules with a fair yet iron fist! This place is always POPPIN' & they are known for their all day happy hour. They are very generous with their portions. The tables are a little tight but that's part of the charm. I always meet really fun & nice people while munching on my churizo burrito. And trust me, if you walk in wearing The Lanai Lounger someone is bound to strike up a conversation with you...and who knows where that could lead!
You're getting dessert, go into this meal knowing that. Honestly, grab an extra treat for late night, because nothing in town is open after midnight. The French Toast is great, burgers with cottage fries hit the spot...it's a Jewish deli, you know you'll leave full and satisfied. If you sit outside, there is a gorgeous view of the mountains.
This is the morning you should be dressed in your best. The Parker (duh!) or Zero To Hero will do the trick because every inch of this Resort is Instagram GOLD! Beyond that, everything about Norma's is perfection. The service, the coffee, the smoothies!! Their fajita's are killer...but honestly, you can't go wrong with this place. I'll see you there!
Eight4Nine is a Mid-Century Modern DREAM! Everything is pink & white. The eight4nine cocktail hits right day or night and is served in a goblet! No one can touch their carne asada, I've never had better, and you can customize an omelet any which way you'd like. I never miss a chance to go to this lovely spot!
