The guy who runs this is a great guy. Helpful and polite. I stopped in for some beer and food and I am so glad that I did. Very historic too and you can meet some cool people here to talk to.

I usually stop at the Trading Post when I travel to CA from my home in AZ. They usually have some interesting trinkets in the summer. A good place to stop for a Soda, and a Lottery Ticket.
