|Driving out of the San Francisco Bay area, we birded along back roads. In particular on Mining Road, where we|
ate at the Junction Café. Many motorcycles had been zooming past us -- and here they were!
Between our stops at parks with birds, creeks with birds, roadside birds, and high mountain passes with birds, we've been eating some interesting meals. Some were even pretty tasty. Here are a whole lot of photos of the most interesting and unusual features of diners, cafés, and restaurants where we've stopped.
|The Junction Cafe is special. Several of our group had the Mexican food there,|
which they liked. I wasn't so lucky: my sandwich wasn't at all good.
|The decor is interesting.|
|Another view of the automatic wine dispenser. The food was pretty good.|
I had chicken marsala, which I liked. Unfortunately on the second night
of our stay, we ate there and the service was horrible.
|Perko's kitchen and our waitress who remembered everyone's preferences|
for coffee etc. on the second day when we came back.
|My favorite: a Mexican café in Arnold, CA near the Calaveras Big Trees State Park.|
|The kitchen of the Mexican Diner.|
