Travel Tips from people who've been to Pacific Grove
Enjoyed great meals at the Fishwife (fresh and clean seafood near Asilomar State Beach - great Calamari Steak. Also enjoyed the Port & Torte for dessert); Red House Cafe (Downtown on Lighthouse - both breakfast and lunch - great pork tenderloin sandwich); and Favaloro's (Downtown on Lighthouse - Italian & seafood - extensive wine list, excellent Fettucine Frutto di Mare)

Good tip?
Restaurant Recommendation - "Fifi's Cafe" on Forest Avenue.  The outside doesn't give a clue to the wonderful atmosphere and food within.  Owners are husband & wife team.  His knowledge of wine is amazing!  She, Michelle, was trained in Paris and is a delightful woman who ensures the food is always delicious and memorable.  I've never had a bad meal there!
Good tip?
Pacific Grove is a nice place to park the car, walk around the paths and see the Pacific Ocean.  It's rather on the cool side so bring layers.  There are lots of little B&B's along the way, but usually fill up fast, so go to the web and book your reservations.
