Point Reyes Oysters and Cheese!

Cheese in a barn

Working next to the Embarcadero means that our team heads over to the Ferry Building quite often for lunch. With all the options available, we still end up waiting in front of Cowgirl Creamery for a simple grilled cheese and cup of tomato soup — it never gets old. Last weekend, a group of us decided to escape the fog and head north to Point Reyes and meet at — you guessed it — The original Cowgirl Creamery, located in a humble barn with cute outdoor seating and such gorgeous weather!

My personal recommendations? The salmon bites and the ham&tam sandwich.

Oysters fresh from the bay

Afterwards, we zigzagged through scenic hills and arrived at the Tamales Bay Oyster Company for some serious shucking and saucing. Pro-tip: Buy Anastacio’s “Famous BBQ Oyster Sauce” from Tomales Bay Foods beforehand. It does wonders to your oysters. If you haven’t eaten all the oysters raw within 20 minutes, it’s best to grill the rest.
