WHY Locally sourced foods meet excellent beers at this casual Fairfax café.
WHAT A minimalist ode to the joy of pairing craft brews—mostly from the Golden State (that’s California for you newcomers)—with food from the state’s purveyors, including Scoops’ unexpected ice cream flavors (including beer- and wine-inspired tastes), Let’s Be Frank dogs and sausages, and naturally raised beef. Don’t miss the crunchy fish ‘n chips and zingy jalapeño coleslaw. Ask knowledgeable owner Jason Bernstein to help select the perfect beer for the food.
WHO Daytime families, nighttime club-goers and sports fans (there’s a TV for the big games).
