The work of local artists hangs on the walls of this petite, romantic café in a tile-roof cottage. Featuring organic produce from area farms, the seasonal Italian menu has included wild-mushroom risotto; bouillabaisse; marinated chicken with apricots, currants, and olives; and roasted beet salad with wild arugula, goat cheese, and pistachios.

Santa Cruz has slim pickings when it comes to restaurants. It is not bad, but I can't imagine what the person who gave it top ratings was thinking. Dinners are blah (overcooked and chewy snapper, caprese swimming in oil). Stick with lunch or brunch and you will do o.k.
