Restaurant somewhere around Mystery Spot

Staying in Pajaro Dunes for a week starting October 7 and driving into SC to do the Mystery Spot. Can someone recommend a restaurant somewhere around there? I know the Boardwalk is close, so not opposed to going there. We will have two 10 year olds, so a child friendly restaurant would be great. Thanks for your help!

The wharf area of Santa Cruz (by boardwalk) is a good place to go and all are chid friendly. Stegnaro's www.stagnarobrothers.com/restaurant.html

is one of our favorite for a relaxed atmosphere with a good view of the Santa Cruz area. Easy walk to see the sea lions at end of the pier also. Lots of fun.

If you want something more upscale, Cafe Cruz is good.

It does not look like much from outside, but inside its quite nice and the food is excellent.


(Note: This is not in the wharf area but is within driving distance of the Mystery Sport and Pajaro Dunes.)
