A taste of the West Coast at California Pizza Kitchen


Small plates, appetizers, pizzas and salads are the way to go here. But if you’re looking for something hearty, they also offer pastas, fish and steak.


The cozy space is marked by wooden tables and flooring, dim lighting, and plenty of booth cushions to go around.


The Californian cuisine is epitomized in the avocado club egg rolls ($11.39), which come deep fried in a warm, crispy wonton shell wrapping a chunk of avocado, bits of chicken, tomato and melted cheese into a single delicacy. But let’s not forget about the coveted Original BBQ Chicken Pizza ($14.49), slathered with slices of tender chicken, red onion and their famous barbecue sauce intertwined in smoked gouda cheese. It’s a perfect dish to help you venture out of your pizza-comfort zone.


The Californian culture is evident in the thin crust, whole wheat and gluten-free pizza options, so diet is an obvious priority here. It’s also located in Boca’s Town Center Mall, so you can shop and eat all in one place.


Our waiter was kind and understanding when we discovered a mistake in one of the pizzas, offering to make us a fresh one to take home on the house.


With the hustle and bustle of the mall nearby, you would expect it to be loud, even with music playing in the background. Moderate around 6 p.m. on a Sunday night.


“CPKids” have their very own menu options with personal-sized pizza selections and other palate-friendly dishes tailored just for them.


6000 Glades Road (Town Center Mall), Boca Raton, 561-368-2805

Hours: M-Thurs., 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; F-Sat., 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sun., 11:30 a.m.-8 p.m.
