1. Surfy Surfy

His father founded the legendary Moonlight Glassing factory, so J.P. St. Pierre knows local surfboard history. When this corner space came available, he decided to transform his popular surf blog into brick and mortar. The result is one of the most soulful surf shops in SoCal. 974 N Coast Highway 101

Cafe Ipe

4. Café Ipe

Known to some as "Coffee Coffee," since it shares a wall with Surfy Surfy, Ipe is stocked with Cardiff’s famous VG donuts every morning. The coffee is great, too, as Revolution Roasters cooks up small batches onsite. And you can’t beat the positive vibes on the sunny sidewalk patio.  970 N Coast Highway 101

Haggo's Organic Taco

5. Haggo’s Organic Taco

With 95 percent of its ingredients organic, Haggo’s is a far cry from any ‘berto’s. The tacos cost three times as much, but with citrus soy-marinated free-range chicken, and caramelized onions and fresh herbs in almost every taco, we think it’s worth every penny. 1114 N Coast Highway 101
