Hot Patios

Such nice weather really makes me want to get outside and enjoy our town. I hike or a trip to the beach is pretty standard for my weekend, but so is hanging out at some of the best patios around. One of my favorite off the beaten path places to sip a beer in the sun is Padaro Beach Grill – but be prepared to deal with all the kids running around. If you’d prefer  something a little quieter and “adult” – try the Garden Market (also in Carpinteria). They’ve got a pretty good wine menu and a peaceful patio in the back worthy of a few hours. Also down that way is Cafe Luna – which I think has beer and wine but also serves up coffee and treats.
In town – Eladio’s is a spot that every time I go, I tell myself I need to go more often. If  you want to stay on State Street to do some people watching – I think Aldo’s, The Chase or State & A are perfect.  State Street of course also has plenty of serious watering holes – like Madison’s. And if you’re forced to spend a day in a mall, schedule an hour on Pizza Mizza’s outdoor area or at Hollister Brewing Company up near Costco.

Please enjoy your Patio responsibly!

Of course, if you’re in the mood for Coffee – and I always am, Jitters or Java Station both serve the local favorite Green Star Coffee and both have good sun and people watching too.

    All my favorite summertime hot spots! Even still, it’s hard to remember where to go when it’s decision time, so the helpful list is appreciated. I will be sure to hit up 1 or 2 of those this week, as long as our beach weather continues!
