Monterey - Looking for Healthy, Fresh Options

We will be spending a week on business in Monterey, based at Monterey Plaza Hotel. Some meals will be with others, most likely going to seafood places. We'll have some meals on our own - and would love to find some healthy, fresh type alternatives - like salads, grilled vegetables, anything with fresh vegetables. Any suggestions?

  1. Schooners in your hotel used to have a killer grilled portabello sandwich. If the weather cooperates and you have a table on the deck, beware of bold seagulls looking for handouts! Also I liked the seared ahi salad.

    Trailside Cafe is a short walk from your hotel and usually has good variety of offerings but kitchen can be slooooow in getting food out. Dog-friendly at outside tables.

    1. Don't miss the downtown farmers' market. All kinds of veggies and some veggie food options.
