10. Tillie Gort's

This simple storefront cafe, known for its large portions and vegetarian fare, has a menu chock-full of tasty items for less than $10, including sandwiches, salads and specialty dishes. Our fave is the Greek salad ($9.95), which overflowed its dinner-size serving plate. We're not the only ones who like the small cafe: Tillie Gort's is an annual winner in Monterey County Weekly's dining poll. 111 Central Ave., Pacific Grove; (831) 373-0335, http://www.tilliegortscafe.com
