Olema Inn & Restaurant
Only a two-minute drive from the Point Reyes Visitor Center, the Olema Inn & Restaurant has a countryside feel that befits its history as an 1876 inn where area farmers and ranchers got together. Old kitchen implements and century-old pine floorboards from a Virginia tobacco warehouse add to the heritage aspect of the (sometimes loud) dining room. Dishes on the local and seasonal menu may be a country pâte with pickled vegetables and date compote, or veal stew with trumpet mushrooms and pearl onions. Lunch is slightly more casual, with burgers, omelets, and sandwiches. Outside, flower gardens surround the patio, and the inn’s fruit orchards are nearby.
