Call it a coincidence, but ever since the Treasure Island Flea rebranded itself into Treasurefest and moved across the island, the culinary options nearby it magically improved. Also new spots have opened on the island, luring people from both sides of the Bay to take a mid-bridge exit and capitalize on the island’s winning assets —views, space, and sunshine.

Headed to the flea-and-makers extravaganza this upcoming weekend for TreasureFest’s 7th Birthday? After your treasure hunting adventures, check out these nearby places to eat and drink.

Aracely Cafe

The stylish wedding venue isn’t new to the island, but the cafe’s recently added dinner, as well as the seasonal brunch items, are welcomed newcomers. The patio is peaceful with a lovely menu to match, and big groups are easily accommodated. The brunch menu offers unusual items like risotto balls, pork belly pancakes, and a pesto and wild mushroom sandwich, plus a croissant French toast to remember. Dinner is about going big with oysters, braised chicken, and steaks.

Treasure Island Wines

Down for sipping some vino on the island? This spacious tasting room, open only during the weekends, offers samples from five different wineries which share the facility. Try a crisp chardonnay, a refreshing rosé, or a rich red, and check the website for fun paella parties and recurring Hawaiian BBQ festivities.

Mersea

The latest addition to the island’s dining scene, Mersea is the whole package, from the views to the cute palm-clad logo, to the food. The menu mixes all-American favorites like the giant loaded potato and the classic cheeseburger with dishes synonymous with an island vacation, like ceviche and seared tuna with kimchee. Throwback deserts, including floats, sundaes, and apple pies will complete the nostalgic meal.

Woods Island Club

Since opening its doors in 2016, the easygoing, breezy outpost of Woods Beer has been delivering sandy, sunny, beer-fueled fun to the masses. An airplane hangar was converted into a warehouse with taps and barrels, folding chairs were placed on the waterfront—and voila, an enjoyable weekend spot was born. The interesting beers (honey flavored herbal ale! Sparkly IPA!) are complemented beautifully by the impossible-to-resist empanadas.

Vie Winery

Spacious and relaxing, Vie specializes in Rhone and Zinfandel, and is only open on Saturdays and Sundays. The wine tasting and socializing are paired with bocce ball, on courts available for reservation. For a bigger gathering, and what sounds like the ideal birthday party, the winery offers bocce ball and wine packages. And despite your bocce ball skills, the winery’s prime location means a win for all.
