This old country store still has a great ambiance with live bands, clothing, thought provoking books, cards and gifts. It has lots of snacks, a bar, and healthy drinks, but no meals available. It's one mile from the beach and a good place to warm...More

Loved this little out of the way, anachronism... a truly wonderful spot with a cafe, bar and gift shop on a corner by itself a few miles inland from the ocean.Live music on Sundays and I think other times too.

Great store to stop in a scenic drive, bike ride or outing. Bar, groceries, snacks, drinks, books, clothing, ceramics, gifts and various items that you can browse leisurely. Fun, funky place to check out especially if there's live music playing.

This is the coolest and most eclectic place, off of Highway 1 on 84. It is best to go on weekends when they have different bands playing. You can checkout their website for listings and times. We have enjoyed some very good local bands here....More
