Plumes, Monterey CA

During our trip to California, we spent the night in Monterey.  It was a half way point on our drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco.  Looking for breakfast, we stumbled upon this terrific American-style cafe, Plumes. 

Although Plumes is a small coffeehouse with just a few tables and chairs, it makes up for its size with the many Americana wall decorations and its AWESOME food. 

Plumes has a large choice of breakfast selections including pastries, bagels, hot beverages, etc..  I couldn't resist ordering a pastry too. The cheese danish looked too good not to try. 

Plume's cheese danish was hands-down the best cheese danish I have ever tasted. The cheese danish had the right balance of cheese, with flaky, tender dough and a slightly glazed exterior. 

My mom also got hypnotized by the pastry case and ordered this blueberry tart. She said it was packed with an abundance of sweet, fresh blueberries. She was also impressed with the presentation of the dish-  berry syrup drizzled on the dish and whip cream topped with strawberries as the finishing piece.

 Charles and I ordered their egg, bacon, and cheese on a sesame bagel. With generous amounts of egg, bacon and cheese, the bagel's soft texture and warmth brought great joy to my taste buds. 

You know your meal is well-prepared when you see it smiling right back at you. This parfait included blueberries, granola, raisins, and strawberries all mixed together with yogurt.

Finding Plumes was a highlight of our trip to Monterey.

Plumes is located at 400 Alvarado Street  Monterey, CA 93940 -  (831) 373-4526
