Suggestions for a low-key vacation in Monterey, where to eat?

Hi, so as I mentioned before my husband and I are going to be out in Monterey (first time) next month. We don't want to spend a ton of money on food while we're out there just b/c the airfare and hotel are already eating up a big part of our budget (pun intended). We're totally content to just walk around and find a good pizza joint but I thought it may also be nice to have some recommendations as well (we will be taking day trips to Carmel and Pacific Grove, etc). We have gotten suggestions for Il Vechio and La Balena for a nice dinner one night which is perfect. The rest can be somewhat casual (in other words we're not going to head to Marinus). So far I have Fandango for lunch or dinner, Lokal for dinner, and La Bicyclette for breakfast. Any other good brunch spots or any other casual but fun places that you think we just have to try while we're out there? Unfortunatly we don't eat seafood but we do love American, Italian, Mexican, Greek, etc. Thanks!
