California's Central Coast seems to be exploding with restaurants. In Templeton, try Martin's on Main, a converted garage that is now a hamburger stand. Delicious cheeseburgers with bacon, and a nice owner trying to make it work. I highly recommend it. The other find is Madeline's Restaurant in Cambria, with linen tablecloths, fresh flowers and a friendly owner-chef. Everything is very fresh. The sea bass with mango glaze was the best I have ever had.
