The Cozy Cup Cafe is one of several cute and charming restaurants that serves delicious breakfasts and lunches in Hollister, our county seat. It's an old-time haunt (nearly 30 years) of locals run by the ever friendly longtime owners, Frank and Wendy.
The cafe serves a generous portion of its delicious choices that sometimes the Husband and I share an order. When we opt to order individually, I often go home with leftovers. Yay! Currently, my favorite dish is its special chile verde omelet. Mmmmm.
Some mornings the Husband and I get a yen for a mocha, which, until recently, meant driving to Vertigo Coffee Roasters in San Juan Bautista, the second biggest city (population, about 1975) in the county to get our fix. Not any more.
Evan, a former Vertigo barista, recently opened Calavera in Hollister. The young entrepreneur is also a latte artist. Like Frank of Cozy Cup Cafe, Evan is a Hollister Baler. Yes, we are proud of our hometown guys and gals.
Calavera, best described as a pop-up specialty coffee espresso bar, has taken over the kitchen in a charming old wooden house in downtown Hollister. This cute house is the home of The Garden Shoppe, a combination boutique plant store and wine & beer bar. (You'll learn more about it for the letter G.) Hollister's gone hip, I tell you.
