Highly acclaimed by attendees at the nearby Monterey Conference Center for delicious omelettes and terrific service, Pino's has a breakfast and lunch menu including Italian favorites. It's also a great stop for gelato, ice cream, and Italian coffee.

Ricardo A. Diaz's March 2011 review in the Salinas Californian highlighted this popular spot; when the review is not online, you may request a copy from http://www.thecalifornian.com/article/20110324/ENTERTAINMENT03/103240326/Ricardo-Diaz-European-caf-ambiance-Pino-s-Monterey

Bike Tips:

Bike rack located conveniently nearby. Pino's has outdoor tables in front, and it's also surrounded by picture windows. That means that in any weather, if you have a pricey bike you want to keep a sharp eye on, this is a great location for you!

Bike-there directions for Pino's Cafe:

Coming from the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail (the Class I/off-road bike/multi-use path), Pino's is very near the top of Old Fisherman's Wharf/Wharf #1.

From Wharf #1, Pino's is located across the Custom House Plaza, which is the State of California's State Historic Landmark #1, and also serves as the beautiful gateway between the coastal trail and downtown Monterey.

Once you cross the Custom House Plaza, you'll enter the brick walkway officially named the Alvarado Mall. On your right, you'll see a bike rental shop, Adventures-by-the-Sea. And on your left, Pino's Cafe.

Not familiar with Custom House Plaza and Alvarado Mall? Want to see a picture of those--and Pino's? See "Where the Plazas Are" at the Bicycling Monterey website: http://marilynch.com/blog/where-is-in-the-city-of-monterey.html
