101 North: Lakeport, Clear Lake area, Park Place


Park Place  50 3rd St., in Lakeport, west lake, (707) 263-0444.  L-D daily; $-$$.  Reservations advised.  Located lakefront and across the street from Library Park, this cafe offers great views from its outdoor rooftop dining area.  For starters, don't miss the magnificent bruchetta--a baguette topped with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes and then grilled--or the broiled Gorgonzola bread.  The menu has a large selection of fresh pastas, including several kinds of tortellini and raviolis, plus pizza, fresh fish, steaks, and hamburgers.  Personal favorites include the pasta marinara with housemade San Marzano tomato sauce atop housemade fettuccine and the beer-battered fish & chips.

101 North: Lakeport, Clear Lake area, Angelina’s Bakery & Espresso


Angelina’s Bakery & Espresso  365 N. Main St., Lakeport, west lake, (707) 263-0391.  B-L daily.  This modest, casual coffeehouse-deli has a worn concrete floor and mix-matched seating.  It is famous for its gigantic fresh-baked cinnamon rolls, cookies, brownies, and lemon bars, and I can attest to the deliciousness of the blueberry muffin.  Housemade soup (good with a biscuit), specialty sandwiches and panini, pasta salads, and both ice cream and unique coffee ice cubes--especially popular in summer--are also on the menu.
