INTRODUCTION

Having nothing better to do at the moment I thought that I would start
this guide to help people find places to eat lunch and to enjoy coffee
before and after the ride.  The initial version is based on my own
experiences as introduced to me by my Western Wheelers buddies on the
Tuesday and Thursday "B" and "C" rides as well as all of those other
wonderful Western Wheelers who lead rides in and around the area.

I hope that this will be a growing resource as people contribute their
favorites.  I do not plan to rate individual establishments for price
or quality but, on occasion, will comment about my favorite food or
other attribute that attracts me to the particular establishment.

See also the SF Bay Area Rides Catalog which Carol Shaw and I have
been working on for the past few years.  This lists 336 rides in and
around the Bay Area.  The Rides Catalog can be reached thru the
Western Wheelers site:

Western Wheelers Bike Club

or directly thru Dick Blaine's site:

Rides Catalog V2.0(Updated 10/20/99)

If you would like to contact me to make corrections, suggestions and/or submit additional establishments, send email to:

Email Dick Blaine Since we are blessed with wonderful weather in this area almost year round, my preferences are as follows: LUNCH: *buy lunch and eat in a park *eat lunch outdoors at a restaurant *eat indoors COFFEE/SNACK: *one-of-a-kind coffee house - out-of-doors *chain coffee house - out-of-doors *coffee indoors CATEGORIES: PARKS There are many parks in our area. I have listed only those that are conveniently located on rides I have taken. TAKE OUT Many of these establishments have outdoor seating. Many markets, delis and restaurants have take out food and, in fact, may be the only convenient source of food. These are establishments where I would expect people to take food elsewhere for consumption but I do not make a hard and fast distinction COFFEE HOUSES Most coffee houses also have bakery goods - some make excellent deli sandwiches. There are two kinds: Chains (Starbucks, Peets, etc.) & one-of-a-kind (my favorite type). RESTAURANTS Here I include any establishment that serves sandwiches, cooked food, salads, etc. and that has at least a few tables. This includes delis, some markets, and restaurants in the more traditional meaning as well as brew pubs. If you are taking a group, call first. Most will set up tables for the group and all will appreciate the notification. CHAINS These are almost everywhere in the SF Bay Area. Following are a few of my favorites and not so favorite. Sometime a chain market or 7-11 is as good as it gets - there may be no other place for lunch. Specific chain locations are listed if particularly convenient or the only place available for food on the route. Starbucks Coffee Peet's Coffee Le Boulanger Good Earth - OUT OF BUSINESS Posh Bagel 7-11 Albertson Safeway Andronico Togo's CONSIDERATIONS Bicycle parking, speed of service, location on or near bike route and food quality are my primary considerations; service and atmosphere are certainly important. GENERAL COMMENTS We have an abundance of parks in the Bay area - most with picnic tables, rest rooms, etc. I will mention a few of my favorites. Similarly, almost every market has a deli section which makes sandwiches. Since this list will age, it would be a good idea to check with the establishment before planning and publicizing a ride to make sure that it is still in business. Web browsers and word processing programs all have find (search) facilities. You can download the file to your own computer and use the program of your choice. Alternately, use your web browser to link to the file. Use the index to find an establishment and search through the file for the index number. I plan to update the information occasionally so you might check back every few months.
