During our recent trip to Santa Cruz we were looking for one more dinner, beside our night at Mentone, and decided on Trestles https://trestlesrestaurant.com/ in Capitola. Even though it might not hit the same high notes of our visit to Mentone, it is still a very nice neighborhood restaurant with good dishes.
