Cardiff 101 Main Street’s 9th Annual Taste of Cardiff was a success. Attendees tasted samples from local restaurants as well as craft beer, wine, and kombucha at 11 Sip and Stop locations while enjoying live music in Cardiff Town Center. A favorite spot was C’Est Si Bon, a European inspired boutique where guests sipped on wine from Carruth Cellars Urban Winery, sampled food from Urban Plates, and listened to jazz by Louis V. Duo and Sarah Knapp. There was also live painting during the event, including a utility box painting by Daniel Hernandez and a mural collaboration by Skye Walker, Todd Glaser, and Rob Machado.

Cardiff Beach Bar @ Tower 13 took home the Golden Fork Award this year for Chef AJ’s ceviche sliders. Second place was tied between last year’s winner, Cardiff Seaside Market, and newcomer Bump Coffee. Rounding out the top three was local favorite VG Donuts. Discover more at
