We are putting this into our mix for a regular place to have lunch ... Very attentive service and great choices on the food and wine menu.
Directions: From HWY1, between Monterey and Carmel take Hwy 68 (West) - toward Pacific Grove. As you come up to the business area with Safeway on the left and a quick-stop on your right you will come to a light - Prescott Ave. Turn left after the light into the small mall on your left. Fifi's is facing Forest Hill.
We just got home from having a perfectly delightful lunch at Fifi’s Café & Bistro, just a couple of minutes away from home. Fifi’s is located on Forest Hill, Pacific Grove in a small mall with several different cafés. It has been there since 1985, originally being a patisserie and place for sandwiches. A few years ago they turned to a much fuller menu, and have a lovely wine list to-boot.
They are open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch.
Sitting at a table for two looking out the window – parking lot, but a bit of an ocean view beyond – we both had a cup of onion soup which rivaled some of the very best, the flavors rich and fulfilling.
I moved on to one of the five or so specials of the day which was a fettuccine with salmon, prawns, muscles in a saffron cream sauce, with sliced tomatoes and leeks. A really delicious and very rich dish. The portion was perfect and the price was $14.95.
Rob ordered the steak frites, and where he usually truly dislikes sauce he said this peppercorn sauce was so good that not only did he have it on the skirt steak but “did I notice he sopped it up on the French bread”…. Yes, as a matter of fact I did. His dish was $15.95.
We had a single size bottle of Pellegrino and a bottle of Pinot Grigio which was light, crisp and delightful. The total bill came to $68.99.
It is a small place with about 20 or so small tables.
This is again in our mix. The price was right and the service was great. For our lunch there were two waiters and maybe seven other tables filled while we were there.
