Also looking for recommendations for breakfast and dinner while staying In Monterey
My favorite breakfast spots in Monterey are Rosines, LouLous, and First Awakenings. First Awakenings is technically in Pacific Grove, but it is adjacent to Monterey. If you happen to find yourselves in Carmel, I like Katys and Carmel Belle. For lighter fare Carmel Coffee House and Cafe Carmel are good
For dinner - what kind of cuisine and budget are you looking for?
There are lots of very good places for dinner in Monterey! One of our favorites is The Sardine Factory. You can choose which room you would like to dine in. When it is just the two of us, we enjoy a quiet meal by the fire in The Captain's Room. When we have a larger group, The Conservatory Room is very nice with glass ceilings and lots of greenery. They offer early bird specials here.
We also really like Schooner's Coastal Kitchen @ The Monterey Plaza Hotel. This is a very good restaurant if you want a water view. The C @ The Clement is also very good. :)
