Shell Cafe

Step into the Shell Café and you will be treated to a wonderful time at one of the oldest continually running restaurants on the Central Coast. Our history is rich with great tradition.

Our restaurant was the midway point between Santa Barbara and Hearst Castle in San Simeon. Hollywood celebrity friends of William Randolph Hearst found the restaurant a perfect place to relax with a great view of the Pacific Ocean and have a bite to eat on their way up the coast to visit the Castle.
