The final leg of last week's road trip had us driving home from Carmel on Sunday. We were ready to be back. With two kids sick, and our final night spent in a motel with dubious cleaning standards, we just wanted a hot shower at home, and to crawl into familiar beds...but not before making a couple stops at some of our favorite old-school points of interest.
Second stop: Capitola for Gayle's Bakery and Rotisserie.
I have been one of many faithful fans of Gayle since my college years in Santa Cruz. Everything I have ever eaten here, from sweet to savory, has been incredible. Which is why I NEVER miss the opportunity to indulge in a little bit of a lot of things she dishes up, whenever I'm nearby.
Breakfast consisted of egg and bacon croissants for the wee ones, and huevos rancheros casserole topped with a poached egg for me. (I must try to recreate my dish at home. So colorful and fun to eat!) After that, I was emotionally unable to deny my children their first cake pop experience.
