Stephen and I have been on the hunt for some new, non-chain, places to try. My boss recommended Pedalers Fork to us, and so off we went on our bikes.
Just kidding, we drove. I don't even own a bike. Thankfully that is not a requirement to eat there.
Backstory: Stephen and I had a favorite little coffee spot right across the street from our flat in Scotland called Siempre Bicycle Cafe. They served up Stephen’s favorite coffee, Dear Green, which we now import to our doorstep here in California so Stephen stops complaining about the lack of good coffee out here. So this little bicycle cafe, that sold bikes and bike gear to those who actually rode bikes along with some yummy, fresh, healthy and organic food in their attached cafe, became our special spot.
Now here we are hearing about Pedalers Fork with the exact same concept and we are like, it’s meant to be.
It is located in Old Town Calabasas, which is this very cute little section of town that looks a little western/prairie-ish. Pedalers Fork is pretty big in size, with a cafe, bar, and restaurant, and decked out in the cutest little decor of wood and old bicycles. They have an outdoor deck that sits amongst tall trees, which is where we ate.
Their food is locally sourced, organic, and has a ton of gluten free options for you gluten-free-ers out there. They also serve one of Stephen’s favorite beers, Allagash Curoiux, on tap.
We started with the bacon wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates (dead) and for mains I got the grass fed burger and S got the fried egg sandwich with added bacon (duh), both equally delicious. Their fries are also yummy, and taste sort of like a thicker version of in-n-out fries, which is the highest of praise. We finished off with the ice cream sandwich and demolished it.
It’s a bit on the pricier side, especially for their cocktails. However, you get what you pay for with large portions, really fresh and fantastic food and drink. They also get points in my book for giving you a big jug of 3x filtered water at no charge. I am already excited to go back and give their breakfast a try because I live for a good breakfast. They also have a happy hour, which is more wallet friendly and then you can get a little taste of some of the goodness.
