Marin County residents not only get sun for the summer, they also get a couple new businesses from SF folks, starting with a location of WISE SONS BAGELRY, which just opened in Marin Country Mart in Larkspur. On the menu: fresh-baked bagels, schmears, bagel sandwiches, and new salads (like The Country Club Cobb Salad with pastrami bacon, turkey, hippie greens, pickled carrot, cherry tomato, onion, avocado, radish, and blue cheese), plus items to go, like their babka and corned beef. Pro tip: try the L.E.O. breakfast sandwich (pastrami salmon, scallion shmear, and egg) before you hop on the Larkspur ferry to work (there is even a commuter deal!). Enjoy a Stumptown Coffee drink, or fun ones like an egg cream shakerato, coconut cold brew, and nitro chai on tap. Open daily 7am-3pm. 2227 Larkspur Landing Circle, Marin Country Mart, Larkspur.
Also newly open in the Marin Country Mart is FISHER’S CHEESE + WINE from Kiri Fisher of The Cheese School of San Francisco. This all-day café (with sidewalk seats!) has dishes beyond their gorgeous cheese boards, including Fisher’s trademark artisan grilled cheese sandwich (duh), creamy mac and cheese (yup), bites like housemade focaccia with Achadinha Cheese butter or carrots with pimento cheese dip, healthy grain salads, chicken cassoulet, meatballs in a creamed chard sauce, and more. It’s also a cheese and wine retail shop, with all cheese and charcuterie cut to order. Plus, they cater, so the next time you need a showstopping platter, you know who to call. Open Sun-Mon 11am-7pm, Tue-Thu 11am-9pm, Fri-Sat 11am-10pm. 2201 Larkspur Landing Circle, Marin Country Mart, Larkspur, 415-779-2201.
