Best pizza in town and oh-so-much more. Try the Funghi or keep it simple with the Pepperoni and you can't go wrong. Pro tip: split the Arugula Nachos, a twist on the classic using pasta chips - you won't regret it!

This is a must to visit for their tapas menu, only available Wednesday thru Saturday aptly titled 'Cultura'. These small plates are available in the bar room and are crafted to perfection, from presentation to the last bite. Cultura is more than a meal, it's an experience. Pro tip: order the Ceaser Cultura, a reimagined Ceaser salad which arrives under a glass dome of foggy smoke and delicious delight.

Into delicious brews and vintage pinball? Look no further. These taps are pouring nothing but the best. Our favorites? 11-17 ISA for a smooth, light drinking session ale, or the 137 Rye Pale Ale. Better yet, grab a seasonal which is only available in their tap room. Every Sunday is all you can play pinball for $3. It's the perfect cap to a weekend well spent.

Looking for a fine crafted cocktail, entertainment and upscale pub eats? The Raven has you covered. Tuesday and Thursday trivia is not to be missed, Wednesday night cools down with some live Jazz and the weekends heat up with bands, and an epic 'house party' for those inclined to dance every Saturday evening.

This is much more than just a bakery - although it is where you go to get the best baked goods in town. The Opera Cafe lunches are rivalled by none and offer the some of the best soups you will ever taste. Pro tip: try the soup, any soup. And polish it off with a lemon square.

This beach/swimming spot is well known to North Bayites. It's on the end of a residential street and can be hard to find, but you will be well rewarded when you do find it with some of the best swimming around.

The waterfront is where North Bayites flock to once the long weather takes a turn for the warmer. Stroll the expansive boardwalk, take the kids to the beachside playground or one of two vintage carousels or grab an ice cream cone from the shop on the Pier. You can also rent a canoe, kayak, paddle-board or a unique four wheeler family bike most days of the week.
