I'm driving up to visit friends in Ashland from San Francisco next week. On a modest budget and they have young children, so I'm curious about any cafes or unusual food destinations (farms, bakeries, etc.), you might recommend that we'd all enjoy.
I am looking forward to stopping in to say hello at Dagoba Chocolate. And just noticed this: http://www.oregonwineandfarmtour.com/
Would you personally recommend any of the places mentioned in particular?
Also what would someone living in Ashland crave that's hard to get in Oregon? I haven't figured out what to bring except for some pear eau de vie from Hangar One.
Salumi? Pistachios? Cookies from Arizmendi? Meyer lemons? Seems like you've got the berries, wine, and mushroom departments well covered.
Thanks for any ideas!
