Top Monterey Cafes To Get Your Jump Java
We always tell everyone to have a great breakfast before they come for a skydive. If you’re staying in the area, you might have been inclined to ask us for advice on our top Monterey cafes. So, we got you. You don’t even have to ask. Here’s a list of all the places up and down the Monterey Bay Area:
1. Crepes of Brittany
Who doesn’t want a breakfast that is as sweet as your wildest dreams? Our personal favourite is always going to be the Nutella with strawberries and bananas but there’s a wide variety of sweet and savoury options to tantalize your tastebuds with. Warning: your dogs might get very jealous.
2. Local Skydive Cafe: Coffee Mia
A favorite of the Skydive Monterey Bay team, Coffee Mia offers up freshly brewed coffee, espresso, specialty drinks, and delicious food just a mile or two from the skydive center. It’s owned and managed by Horace, one of the most delightful humans you’ll ever meet. Be sure to tell him you’re about to drop out of a perfectly good airplane and he might give you some extra go fast fuel.
2. Old Monterey Cafe
There is always a line here – so you know it’s worth it. It’s incredibly cozy and has the historic charm Old Monterey Town is known for. Everyone loves how the portions here are super huge – go where the locals go!
3. Lafayette Bakery
Carmel-by-the-Sea not only sounds adorable but also looks absolutely cute. It’s full of fairy-tale houses, European inspired cobblestones and high-end eateries.
The best place to head to is Lafayette Bakery which has the best French pastries in the whole county. Between your first skydive and their chocolate brioche, your life might be changed forever.
5. Aloha Coffee and Cafe
Not everyone feels like a big breakfast. A perfectly good alternative is an acai bowl so you can revel in the tropical vibes. There’s also a Green Bowl for those who are more health (or instagram) conscious. Go feel the Aloha.
1. The Cherry Man by Yonder
When you drive to Skydive Monterey Bay, you may have come across the local man selling local cherries on Imjin Parkway. If you need an approximate address to put into your google map because you’re technology-dependent, we recommend putting in:
2. Papa Chevo’s
This place is only 8 minutes drive away from Skydive Monterey Bay. So, when people disappear from work, it’s not uncommon to find them here. The rumored favorite amongst all the sky diving instructors is the breakfast burrito. Two thumbs up.
