Right down the hill from the Baja House, by the ocean and near the San Miguel surf beach is the San Miguel Restaurant. They are only open 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. serving breakfast or early lunch, but it’s a great place to start the day.

It is a great place to get an instant meal, and maybe get some extras too for later. Next door is a rotisserie chicken take-out place that is good for a quick take-out meal.

Don Zefe's has a local feel (easier parking and cleaner than the Mercado Negro) with many different types of seafood tacos and quesadillas. Also there is a nice seafood market next door.

Breweries
There are quite a few in the region, but two of the very best are right nearby in the town of El Sauzal, just minutes from the Baja House. Both have excellent beer snacking foods, too. For a younger crowd and more rustic setting, right along the coast, try Pacific Brews, also in El Sauzal.
Just minutes from the Baja house, great brews and light food.
