When we travel to Northern California, because it's a 12 hour drive, we always stop halfway in Paso Robles. It is a nice little town with a town square. It has wonderful restaurants and rolling hills with oak trees. There are also quite a few great wineries there! Our favorite restaurant for breakfast is the Panolivo French/Mediterranean Restaurant. It is a bakery/restaurant and the food is always wonderfully delicious! And, you can check out their bakery, too! Look at the chocolate Eiffel Tower! Oh, my! I had the ham and cheese croissant and everybody else had the eggs benedict. That's our daughter with her latte! There is no handle on the cup and you have to hold it with both hands to sip it! It's HUGE! We also stopped there on our way back home, a week later! We just can't resist a good meal! And, yes, the diet has already started!
