Station House Cafe is a Point Reyes Station Classic.
Whether you’re cozying up with oysters and drinks in the bar, or tucking in to their Friday Night Fish & Chips feast, you’ll always find something to love at the Station House Cafe. It’s my go-to to meet up with friends for a gorgeous bowl of chowder or one of their meal sized salads.
They’ve got a great cocktail list and serve up some excellent desserts, so go on…enjoy!

Side Street Kitchen
Bright and cozy, this latest addition to the Point Reyes dining scene features slow roasted meats, rotisserie chicken and locally sourced veggie dishes that will have you eating your vegetables first! The dog friendly patio is the place to be when the weather is fine.
Delicious farm to table Italian inspired fare. Go here to share small plates, enjoy local oysters, try their outstanding gourmet pizza.
Their lunch menu is shorter than their dinner offerings. They have a good assortment of small plates and starters, pizza, their much-loved gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, and a couple of hearty dishes like seafood stew. Oysters are also available at lunch.
The dinner menu opens up many more options, and shines with seasonal delicacies—made with local ingredients—some of which are even grown on the restaurant’s own farm. The meat and fish are impeccably sourced.
They have an excellent wine list, so definitely take a look. And even though it’s hard to hold back, if you leave room for dessert, you’ll be happy you did.
Cafe Reyes is best known for their wood fired pizza. But they also serve delicious salads, oysters and huge slices of fruit pie. You can eat indoors, or at one of their outdoor park bench-style tables.
Toby’s Coffee Bar
This tiny coffee bar is located inside of Toby’s Feed barn and serves delicious local, organic baked goods, coffee and espresso drinks.
Stop in here for a sweet treat: cookies, scones, muffins, tartes and more. They also have daily oven baked pizza by the slice. No espresso here, but they do make very good drip coffee, and serve Chai Baba.
The Cowgirl Cantina is a take-away deli that sells gourmet sandwiches, salads and wine. There’s also a cheese bar, where you can sample and purchase local cheese, and they carry a tempting selection of gourmet foods: from pancetta to compote to amazing gourmet crackers. The perfect place to stock your picnic basket.
Marin Sun Farms
Marin Sun Farms has both a restaurant and a must-visit butcher shop just outside of downtown Point Reyes Station. Dave Evans, who has deep local family roots as a rancher, raises grass fed beef on the rolling grassland along the coast. You’ll also find goat, pork, lamb and duck in his meat case and on his menu.
You’ll find a take away deli counter at the back of the market that serves hot and cold food (including breakfast), plus soft serve ice cream made from local buffalo milk. On summer weekends, they set up a BBQ in the parking lot, where you can pick up BBQ and burgers fresh off the grill.
Whale of a Deli
Whale of a Deli is both a small bodega, selling chips, candy and soda, as well as a deli counter that serves up sandwiches, pizza whole and by the slice, and Mexican food. They also have a Double Rainbow ice cream counter.
Whale of a Deli has no website

Station House cafe
This is the place to go for cocktails, excellent bar snacks, live music (Sunday nights from 5-8). They have a thoughtfully curated wine, beer and spirits list, at friendly prices, especially on Thursdays, when they offer a select list of wine at half off. Aside from the Saloon across the street, The Station House has the only full bar in Point Reyes Station.
Check out their happy hour specials, Monday-Friday from 3-6pm!
Old Western Saloon
Overflowing with both character, and characters—our local dive bar is a great place to stop in for cold beers, bracing cocktails, live music and dancing, and to soak up a piece of history.
LOCAL WINEMAKERS & TASTINGS
Don’t miss a chance to taste some of our local wines. My favorite place is Heidrun Meadery. It’s just up the road from downtown Point Reyes Station and they make their own sparkling mead. It’s amazing stuff, and they’re open for tastings.

In addition to Station House Cafe’s full bar, you’ll find excellent wine selections at Osteria Stellina & Side Street Kitchen.
Places to Buy Wine & Beer
You can buy bottles of wine to take away for picnics or to take back to your room or cottage. Palace Market is the place to go, but you can also find wine at Cowgirl Creamery Cantina.
