I post a decent amount on the LA board and am taking a leisure road trip from LA to Cambria tomorrow. In looking at previous threads about eating in Cambria, I notice that there's at least a couple of places mentioned that are in Cayucos (Ruddell's, Cass House). I think my partner and I would really enjoy going to those places, the latter especially for a Friday date night dinner (if we can get reservations).
However, we'd be driving from Cambria (since we plan to get there around mid-afternoon) to Cayucos. A 15-mi drive in LA on a Friday evening can turn into a terrifying experience, so I'm wondering if the same would hold true for the drive from Cambria to Cayucos?
Also, any suggestions about places to eat (casual, not more than $30PP, ideally) in Solvang?
Thanks in advance.
