A combination of a gift shop and deli, the Gray Whale is a good spot for a quick lunch. They have a variety of sandwiches, though they stopped making them on demand and you have to get pre-packaged ones. Relaxed, simple and straightforward.

Great place to stop for coffee and breakfast sandwich and pick up items for lunch on the trail. Include small number of local tourist items.

This is a good place to stop for a treat on a hot day. There is an assortment of ice cream flavours and outdoor seating. A small cone is a substantial size treat. Coffee, sandwiches and deli items are also available.
