For my family, a trip to Monterey wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Archie’s American Diner.
What you’ll find: Grab yourself a window table so you can gaze at Monterey Bay as you sip your Cherry Coke. The kiddos will be busy coloring on the paper tablecloths, so you might get at least a minute of peace. Here are some of our favorite menu items: fish and chips, fried marinated artichoke hearts (straight from nearby Castroville), and the sourdough patty melt.
The Big Fuss: Get fried food with an ocean view, about a block away from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. If you want to walk off that hearty lunch, you’re right across the street from the ocean bike/pedestrian path to Lover’s Point in Pacific Grove.
