“Walk down to get pizzas, pastries coffee and more. OPEN Mon - Tue 6:30am - 6:00pm Wed - Sun 6:30am - 7:00pm”
“Not to be confused with Panda Express. It's a bit far in Aptos but worth it. This is my wife and I's favorite Chinese.”
“Many locals meet up here daily for happy hour. Nice restaurant and cocktail lounge.”
“Great hiking in nearby Aptos. Mountain biking trails in Nisene Marks are less arduous than the Demonstration Forest, and can also be accessed from the Demonstration Forest (which is the top of Nisene Marks).”
