Sunday Brunch at Alice's Restaurant
Alice's Restaurant is a classic biker-hangout-turned-restaurant, often made more famous by its association with Arlo Guthrie's song of the same name. Alice's Restaurant is a family owned and operated little slice of the mountains serving up delicious food, barbecue, homemade pies, microbrews, and wine. It's housed in a former General Store in the mountains of Woodside, California. At the crossroads, baby!
We drove up to Alice's through the Santa Cruz Mountains along Skyline Boulevard, behind the slowest bikers ever. Skyline, otherwise known as California State Route 35, is a narrow, winding road that snakes through the redwoods and along the top of the hills from Santa Clara all the way up to San Francisco. Coming from Santa Cruz, the scenic drive takes about an hour and a half.
Alice's Restaurant also has a tourist shop and gas station and is a busy hub for tourists, locals, bikers, and car enthusiasts. It was hopping already by eleven a.m., but we anticipated the wait. We brought along Oreo since the deck is pet-friendly. Once seated, it was a hard choice between so many menu options! We ended up ordering Eggs Benedict, mahi mahi salad, (a very Americanized) huevos rancheros, and the gluten-free chocolate cake for dessert. Yum!
