Today was the last day of a nice five-day weekend. To make the most of it, I drove down to Petaluma, Corte Madera, Mill Valley, and Tiburon!
My first stop was Acre Coffee in Petaluma. :) I then wandered around the mall and the shopping center in Corte Madera. I was starting to get hungry and although I had food at home, I headed to a new find - The Plant Cafe. I always imagined the Strawberry Village Shopping Center to be like any old shopping center with a grocery store and a few other random stores. Boy, was I wrong! The shopping center is attractive with several fun restaurants, plenty of outdoor seating, and even a nice bakery.
After a quick stroll along the shops, I headed to The Plant Cafe. I'm always pretty prepared walking into new restaurants after doing my research online. I ordered the tempeh as it's not something I'd normally cook at home. I thought it was pretty good! I could only finish two of the three pieces of tempeh. I think the cafe is fun and I love that almost everything is organic. They also sell Blue Bottle Coffee, so that's a big plus!
I drove by a few more shops after dinner and guess what I found?! DIM SUM!! :) Harmony Restaurant was packed when I drove by! I need to find myself a date for dim sum or maybe I'll just head there for lunch this weekend!
If I could, I would definitely live in Tiburon. The views are beautiful and it's less touristy than Sausalito. The town was nice and quiet this Tuesday evening, with just a few restaurants and bars still buzzing.
I think dim sum, a walk around Tiburon, and even a walk along the Bay Trail sounds like a good idea in the next week or two. Love it.
