Fodor's Expert Review Claire’s on Cedros
Breakfast foodies religiously line up for a table at this cheerful A-frame restaurant for the chance to dig in to wholesome food made from scratch. Built from reclaimed wood and salvaged bricks, the eatery has a green roof, solar panels, and is insulated with recycled denim—all of which helped it earn platinum LEED status. The menu is equally sustainable with items like vegetarian Benedict, multigrain pancakes, and French toast stuffed with fresh ricotta. Breakfast is served all day, but you can opt for soups, sandwiches, salads, and burgers for lunch. You also can’t go wrong with the Thai steak salad made with grass-fed Angus or the grilled veggie sandwich with a side of homemade potato chips. The attached grab-and-go bakery opens at 6 am for train commuters, and the restaurant serves dinner Friday and Saturday. There are even doggie biscuits whose proceeds benefit the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
