Café d’Oro – meaning “of gold” in both Italian and Spanish – is used to highlight two key elements of the café. The first is the commitment to only the best in quality, a “gold standard” if you will. The second is a subtle allusion to popular local lore about a priceless stash of gold that the Marsh family may or may not have buried somewhere on his Rancho.
A great location in the center of the Club, here you can relax for a moment or linger a bit to enjoy the ambiance of the morning or the spectacular mountain sunsets. Open to the Helak Grand Living Room, the Café bustles with people coming for an early morning latté, an evening glass of wine, and everything in between.
A fun and beautiful space where Members host parties, and attend cooking demonstrations and classes. Named after Dr. Marsh's wife, Abby.
With tall wall-to-wall vines, strung outdoor lighting, elegant patio furniture, and a cozy fire pit, your dining will be intimate and beautiful.
