Monterey - Looking for Healthy, Fresh Options

wintersummer Jul 9, 2012 09:25 PM

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?

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

      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.
