Local Favorite - West End Tap & Kitchen

West End Tap & Kitchen


West End Tap & Kitchen is neighborhood pub with a California twist.  Not only do they offer a variety of craft beers and wine, but they also local, fresh, and seasonal foods.  The eatery has a casual and fun atmosphere, located in an industrial building in the Swift Street Complex.   It is one of my favorite lunch spots when I am on the Westside.  The menu consists of flatbreads, salads, sandwiches, and main courses.  My favorite is the Baby Kale and Spinach salad with pomegranate, toasted hazelnuts, feta & white balsamic vinaigrette.   My husband thinks the house ground burger is the best he has had in Santa Cruz.  Whether going for a drink, lunch, or dinner, West End Tap & Kitchen is a great spot to unwind.
