What to Do Down in Monterey

I'll be visiting Monterey, CA for a weekend getaway soon (most likely the end of June), and I'd love some suggestions for what to do. I've been countless times with visiting relatives so have already done all the basic touristy stuff and chain restaurants, but don't know what else the area has to offer.

The only thing on the schedule so far is the Aquarium (and maybe a stop off at Ano Nuevo on the way down from the Bay Area), though I know we also want to do some photography and maybe go for a (road) bike ride. I am interested in: fun places to stay, great places to eat, easy or moderately challenging bike rides, interesting things to see and places to shop that are NOT on Cannery Row or the pier, and hopefully a cafe where two coffee snobs can get our caffeine fix. Stuff in the immediate surrounding area is great, too.
