The Balboa Café

The Balboa Café Review

With intimate lighting, rich wood accents, and fresh-pressed white linens, this café offers an upscale dining experience. The bar is so busy that you'll be lucky if your elbow gets anywhere near it. Although the cocktails aren't as stiff as their price tags, the food is creative, local, and beautifully presented. Try the Duroc pork chop, braised beef brisket risotto, or caramelized fillet of salmon—and be sure to save room for the s'mores bread pudding. The extensive wine list includes a few wines from Marin County.
