Arrived early in the morning, jet lagged, on a beautiful November morning that was warmer than anticipated. Coffee, hot chocolate and beautiful, beautiful pastries, eaten on a bench outside the cafe watching the world go by - absolutely superb. thank you

Stopped to see about getting some cheese to go with our picnic dinner. The staff was very polite, responsive and knew about all the cheeses. Tastings were freely given with a number and we ended up taking 2 and a bottle of wine back to our campsite !

Full service market featuring gourmet, farm-to-table delicatessen counter serving breakfast-lunch-dinner, espresso bar and house made pastries, beer and wine, organic produce, locally produced foods, specialty foods. “From breakfast made to order to amazing midday fare, from achingly fresh produce to locally raised meats, from seafood to microbrews, Latin staples to Italian delicacies, this is the mother of all small town markets. Everything is here and truly, if it’s not—it’s not needed. Stop here to break your morning fast and grab a sandwich for a hike, stop here on the way back to get your cocktail nibbles and fermented beverages. Stop here.” -Eater SF
All other reviewers have the right idea about this place - there are lots of expensive choices for food to go - and it IS about the only game in town once you go beyond Point Reyes Station, which has (in my opinion) better choices for deli at the Cowgirl Creamery, etc. Anyway, what the Inverness Park Market does have in the get-it-and-go arena is fine. I particularly liked a little veggie quiche that they had. HOWEVER - one big down side is the "fresh"-caught fish they advertise sourced from local fishers. If the fish is not sold within a couple of days, it is rinsed, and re-packaged with a new "sell by" date!!! This is not good, or maybe even not legal? If you are planning to buy "fresh" fish, make a DEEP inquiry into when it was actually caught, and what has happened since then. VERY disappointing!

I have been passing by this place for years on my way to hog island oyster co. Finally decided to stop!
For appetizers we had the clam dip with home made chips. The dip was creme fraiche based and heavy on the clams! The chips we crisp and nicely seasoned. We also ordered the smoked trout served in flat bread - also delicious. There was an abundance of smoked tout and greens over crisp flatbread. These appetizers were big enough to be a light dinner and definitely good for sharing with the table.
For our mains we got the hangtown fry - which was made like an omelet filled with fried oysters and bacon. I've never tried one before and thought it was an awesome combo. We also ordered the horseradish coated cod fish. This was served on top of buttery mashed potatoes and asparagus.
By the time the dessert menus were presented - we were full but two huge glasses of wine into the night - so we couldn't resist. We got the fruit crust with Strauss vanilla ice cream and the citrus cake. Great end to the day.
We wanted to try everything so we definitely over ordered - but I would definitely come back. Service can be spotty as other reviewers have pointed out.

Have a very good cup of coffee or better yet an espresso, sit at a table, and watch tourists and locals go about their business at the PO and Toby's.

Located in the picturesque West Marin town of Point Reyes Station, Osteria Stellina offers a delicious, intimate, farm-to-table dining experience. Known for our strictly local and seasonal cuisine, we strive to showcase the bounty of West Marin on every plate. Our ingredients are sourced from the surrounding regions many farmers, ranchers, and fisherman; each dish reads like a sophisticated blue plate special, comprised of what's close and plentiful on a given day. The result is a creative, clean, farm fresh menu we like to call "Point Reyes Italian". Osteria Stellina's daily lunch and dinner menus include house made pastas and bread, organic salads and soups, pizzas, sustainable meats and seafood, an array of satisfying desserts, and a carefully edited and affordable wine list featuring local vineyards and Italian favorites. Local beer is on tap and additional beers are available by the bottle. The restaurant's gracious dining room is ideal for diners of all ages and any occasion.
First off, the wines prices are way too expensive! The cheapest bottle of red wine was a Chianti for $36! Otherwise, nothing much under $45-$50 which is way too much for an osteria (think trattoria). Food was okay, not great, service was okay, not great. Definitely not as enjoyable as what I remembered when I came last 2-3 years ago.

Saltwater is a neighborhood oyster bar and restaurant that is rooted in its respect for sustainably managed farmlands, shellfish producing water bottoms and folks that are engaged in the thoughtful gathering of food.
We stopped for lunch after a hiking and it was worth the stop. Besides the oysters which are worth the stop by themselves, we had a grilled cheese. No, not wonder bread and cheese product. Think sourdough, with aged cheddar, bacon and pesto.

Stopped for some clam chowder and ended up getting that plus fish tacos and garlic bread. The staff was super friendly, the service was fast and the food was very good. Will stop again when we are cruising by.
