Located in the urban area of downtown Monterey, The Wild Plum Café, Bakery & Bistro has been cooking from scratch and creating a sense of community for over 17 years.
The quaint eatery is reminiscent of a bistro you might find tucked away in Provence, think of your typical neighborhood cafe. The intimate seating area and cozy ambiance creates the perfect setting connecting long time local customers as well as first-time tourists to the area.
The Wild Plum prides itself on their love and passion for food which is truly evident in the freshness of their products. Made from organic and sustainable ingredients, each dish is concocted with an attention to detail and, most of all, flavor!
The Wild Plum is currently open for breakfast and lunch with incredible California cuisine inspired menus to match each meal. Insiders note- there are future plans to include a dinner menu and special grab-and-go counter.
Owner and chef Pamela Burns ensures each dishes quality by shopping at local farmers markets and sourcing from local vendors for everything from fresh vegetables, ripe berries to golden potatoes.
The Greek Goddess flatbread particularly showcases the region’s fresh bounty with oven roasted tomatoes, caramelized red onion, hunks of feta cheese and an out-of-this-world homemade vinaigrette.
Their Porchetta sandwich, made with slow roasted pork belly filled with pork shoulder, is so good that Food Network’s TV star Guy Fieri and even featured it on his popular Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives show.
Save room for dessert! All of their pastries and cookies are baked in-house and are an imperative match with their organic coffees and specialty drinks.
Feeding the masses? The Wild Plum also specializes in catering and buffet meals. Boxed lunches are also available for those setting out for picnic or a day of wine tasting.
