Just recently, my dad and I took an incredible trip to California. Point Richmond was the first place we stayed and this little town was my favorite! A VERY hilly area full of street saturated with flowers, trees, numerous flowers and trees. Not to mention, the many local places to eat in Point Richmond. From a quick bite to eat or cup of coffee; I’ll tell you some of my favorites below.
For a little backstory, my insanely smart and talented sister took a job opportunity in San Francisco this summer. My dad and I, wanting to visit her as well as take a little trip ourselves, took this as a golden opportunity!
A beautiful coffee shop with large indoor and outdoor spaces. They serve coffee, tea, espresso, beer and wine; as well as ice cream and a short but varietal brunch menu. This is a perfect place to eat in Point Richmond! Their indoor space has ample seating, with beautiful natural lighting. They have numerous board games and books available to use.
They have outdoor seating in front of the shop, with a few tables sprinkled amongst the sidewalk, but their real outdoor space in their backyard is where the magic is at. A ginormous deck and then patio/backyard is available with tons of seating. It’s a gorgeous, shaded area filled with mismatched lawn furniture, furthering the already homey and cozy vibe. I tried a Briar Rose latte with oat milk my first visit and then had a Matcha Latte the second time. Both were delicious though the Briar Rose was definitely my favorite.
Your must visit breakfast or lunch spot. With an overwhelming menu to read (in a good way!) anyone and everyone will find something they enjoy here. You order at the counter and can take your food to go, or enjoy it there! With a beautiful indoor seating area with a host of woodwork, you can also head outside to their fenced in patio with ample seating.
I devoured bacon, eggs over-easy, sourdough toast, home-style potatoes and avocado slices on the side. While my dad enjoyed french toast and a chai latte. I’m wishing we grabbed some sandwiches to go because if they were half as good as breakfast, I would’ve loved them. Not to mention, super friendly and accommodating staff, which can really make all the difference in your experience somewhere.
Great pub and grill eats for when you’re craving a burger or fish and chips. They had quite a few appetizers that caught me and my dad’s eye. But we ultimately settled on the fried pickles, which were NO disappointment. They also have an excellent selection of local beers! The pub has a covered outdoor space as well as a decent amount of indoor seating available. The entire inside is decorated with vintage rugby apparel and equipment, along with the unique wood working throughout the interior.
