Artichoke soup at Duarte’s Tavern is like coming home. The restaurant’s tagline is “Where Friends Meet, Since 1894,” and it feels like that is the case. The wooden tables give it an old-fashioned warmth. My personal favorite is half artichoke and half green chilli with fresh baked bread. Follow it up with a piece of olallieberry pie and your trip to Pescadero is almost complete. Soup and pie should be your reward for a walk on the beach.
