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

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.

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.

Cowgirl Creamery

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 Bacon Cheese Burger
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.

Temporarily Closed

Palace Market

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.

Have a drink in Point Reyes Station

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 3-5pm!

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. 



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.

Sometimes the hardest thing about doing photo shoots at restaurant isn't the lighting or the angle, it's that you just want to eat the food! Especially when it's a classic like the fish & chips at @tonysseafoodrestaurant up in Marshall. ⠀

I love popping in for photo shoots at local Inns in #pointreyes -- I remember this was late afternoon in the back garden of @pointreyesstationinn at the height of last summer. The flowers were mad...Ralph is so proud of his roses! And the light...there's something magical about the light in Point Reyes. All you photographers will know what I'm talking about!⠀

Remember Point Reyes...when the time is right to come back. ⠀

I remember this day so well! It was last year at #drakesbeach and there were a thousand elephant seals...seals everywhere. Lazy ones, sleepy ones, loud and raucous ones. We are all bundled up and walked up to the cliff to see the beautiful blue skies.⠀
