I love Sundays. It’s a time for rest, for family, for waking up late, for staying in your pajamas all day long, for brunch, for exercise. Everything and everyone moves just a little bit slower on this day.
For a while now, my good friend has been telling me about Pedalers Fork, a quaint, rustic and charming restaurant in Old Town Calabasas. It practically screams “perfect Sunday spot.” Nestled next to the Calabasas creek, Pedalers Fork is a restaurant, coffee shop and bike shop all rolled into one. After a long bike ride, cyclists can ride up to the bike shop, park their bike and sip an espresso. Families can gather for brunch at the restaurant. As part of the farm-to-table movement, Pedalers Fork only serves the freshest ingredients.
We sat outside on the patio and took in the beautiful views of the creek below. You can’t help but feel instantly calm and peaceful here.
For our appetizer we shared the Crispy Stuffed Squash Blossoms with goat cheese, peaches, yellow wax beans, and basil in a lemon cucumber vinaigrette. Squash Blossoms have quickly become one of my favorite foods, and these were excellent.
We also split the Wild Mushroom Flatbread, with montecito gouda, shaved parmesan, arugula and truffle vinaigrette. It was very well done.
For our entrée we shared the Grass-Fed Burger, with white cheddar, caramelized onions, tomato, pickles, lettuce and house sauce on a pretzel bun. Gooey and cheesy, just the way I like it.
Overall I was very impressed with the Pedalers Fork, especially the ambiance. There are still a few kinks that need to be worked out, but the ingredients were fresh and the menu was unique. I’ve heard people rave about their coffee, and I can’t wait to go back to try it!
