We recently stopped by the fantastic Dad’s Luncheonette for a great brunch. If you have a chance this foodie gem is worth a drive. While there, I realized what a nice getaway Half Moon Bay is for us here on the Peninsula. It’s a short drive over the hill and feels like another world on our beautiful coast. We often drive to Sam’s Chowder House as well which is another local favorite. This guide to modern Half Moon Bay (from a terrific local news source 7X7) below offers more places to visit…check it out.
