A Bodega treasure–Terrapin Creek Cafe

Terrapin CreekAuthor Karen Stephen shares her experience in dining at the Terrapin Creek Cafe in Bodega Bay. Stephen, author of Degrees of Obsession and Mother Tongue, describes her good experience at the Terrapin Creek Cafe and she begins her experience by writing:

"I had just checked in to the Bodega Bay Inn (that’s another story for another time) and had only a little over an hour to get some dinner before I settled in to watch the final race in the Indy Series. I thought I would be relegated to a bag of Fritos and bean dip  from a convenience store, but, taking a chance, I walked across the parking lot to an unassuming blue clapboard building that housed the Terrapin Creek Cafe. The host and owner said they were fully booked but if I could be in and out in an hour that he could seat me. Perfect!

My efficient and knowledgeable fifty-something (my apologies if you were much younger!) waiter was warmly attentive. Such a blessing when one is dining solo. The menu offered a tempting array of local and international cuisine at reasonable prices."
