Overseen by the delightful Maxine Gilbert, the Parkside is the go to place for breakfast in Stinson Beach. A wide range of well prepared traditional breakfast treats, including home baked bread and outrageously good pastries.

You might not expect much of a beachside cafe, but this is top-class. The menu is interesting and varied, and the prices are reasonable. We drove down the coast road to meet a friend at Stinson Beach. My wife at gnocchi with brussels sprouts, and...More

Sorry, Pat, I have no suggestions. I booked our dinner at the restaurant. Did you specify the date and details in your phone message? That should get a response. Gary
