2. Family Friendly Sugar Bakery
Let’s be honest, no road trip is complete until you find that one killer hidden gem of a bakery–Sugar Bakery is definitely it!

3. Family Friendly Crusco’s Ristorante
Talk about memorable Italian food! With beautiful, casual atmosphere, this is a place where you can eat and run or take a deep breath and linger. We regularly have visitors tell us they’ve come back to Angels Camp JUST to eat at Crusco’s one more time. Take a peek at Crusco’s authentic Italian menu and you’re sure to find family friendly dishes and deserts even the kids will love.

4. Family Friendly Cascabel
Here in Angels Camp, we are blessed with loads of great Mexican food. From La Hacienda, to Angel’s Mexican Kitchen, to Mary’s Taco Truck there’s an option for every palette. Even with so many options, Cascabel, the newest joint on the block, is shaking things up with a totally fun take on Mexican cuisine. Hailed by many locals as the most “authentic” Mexican food in Calaveras County. With a lively family friendly night scene, you’ll just have to give this place a try to see what all the fuss is about.
