The cookies are the best, BUT the sandwiches are shady!! Theres hardly any meat in them. I once ordered a turkey club and there was one slice of turkey with a whole bunch of lettuce. They should of called it LETTUCE sandwich!
This should be 5 Star's but the computer is acting up! Screamin Mimi's is screamin' good! I go when I visit my brother and his wife. We head to downtown Sebastopol. I've had the Praline Pecan in a home made waffle cone. Great! They also make waffle cups, which I had the next time with raspberry swirl. Great! They sell by weight so you only pay for what you get. A bit pricey, but worth it. The flavors change often depending on the season as far as fruit sorbets. Everything is fresh and delicious. They make the best homemade hot fudge. You should also try Mimi's Mud, a mix of espresso ice cream, fudge, and oreo's. And the brownie sundae. GREAT!
I had not been to Bodega Bay in years. My grandparents use to take us when we were little. Unfortunately at that time I was a 5 year old who got severe car sickness. It took me many years to travel back and I am glad I did. I drove this time so I would not get sick. The drive is beautiful once you get off the highway. The rates are reasonable. We were there off season. There rooms are spacious and good decor. Be sure to go all out and get a fireplace and balcony. I also requested a room with a great view over looking the bay. The grounds are beautiful and great for a leisure walk. The spa was a disappointment. I was taken into a small room off the pool area for a facial. Never really saw a SPA! The woman had no personality and did a horrible job. She took her time, doing what I don't know. The worst I have ever had.
The Resort itself is beautiful and the staff in the resort were very friendly and accommodating.
After getting several bids for our bathroom tile we picked Creative Tile. The owner Kevin had a professional bid and knew exactly what we wanted. Kevin has been doing tile for many years because his expertise shows in his bidding and confidence in talking to the clients. You can tell Kevin is a perfectionist.
Our bathroom floor came out magnificent and each tile was hand pick from boxes of tile to make sure we got the best. I honestly cannot say enough about Kevin and his crew. They left the house as if no one had been there, except for the beautiful new floor.
We had this huge pine tree in our backyard that was dying. I contacted Erickson Quality Tree Works and set up an appointment. My husband loved the owner Gary, who was professional and courteous. Gary explained exactly what we had to do to get a permit and how he would take care of the tree piece by piece. It was a fast easy, smooth process and clean was impeccable. Thank you Gary and crew.
If you are tired of lines and lousy service from the BIG hardware stores you might want to chek out White Oaks Hardware. It's a friendly neighborhood store. Even though it doesn't have to big selection of Home Depot you know that the staff will give you accurate information. They are willing to answer any fix it questions or give good advice. If you need something in a hurry, you're in and out in a matter of minutes. They usually have what I need or what my husband sends me there for.
My daughter has been going to Twin Dragon for a couple of years.
She has learned the art of self defense and enjoys the "dance" of Kung Fu. Sensei Mike is absolutely wonderful with the kids. He takes them under his wing and gentle but firmly teaches them the art. They have toddler, junior and adult classes. They actually have a brand new facility at 151 Old County
We have stayed in many hotels on Oahu. This is probably our second favorite. Nothing tops Outrigger Waikiki. The Hilton Hawaiian Village comes pretty close. The grounds are beautiful. You can walk the calm, serene,tropical grounds and feel as if you are away from the tourist area. The hotel rooms are very lovely and spacious, we were upgraded to a ocean view room. Spectacular. The swimming pool area is nice, but a few steps away is the beach. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating.
We ate in one of the restaurants, a bit pricey but very good. Can't remember the name.
Sushi Monster on Ralston in Belmont is quick and good for a lunch time meal. I have had their Chinese chicken salad which is good and the nigiri is fresh. The service is is friendly and quick. My friend had Lion King which was a deep fried California tempura roll with baked salmon and jalapeno sauce. She was very happy. Overall I thought it was very good. I will go back.
I just had my eyes checked by Dr. Howard Rose and what a great experience. I have been having my eyes checked now for 40 years and I have to say that Dr. Rose and his staff are the best by far. They have the updated technology, a machine that will take a picture of your eye. You do pay $35 for this process, but you do not have to have your eyes dilated, and the image is far better than looking through your eye after dilation. The staff is above and beyond. They were all involved including Dr. Rose in helping me pick out my glasses. They also recommend what ever your insurance will and will not pay for. My daughter had her eyes checked also and she loved them. we had fun!
