Tucked away on the coast of Monterey Bay, Capitola is Northern California's best-kept secret. A destination in and of itself, the picturesque Capitola Village resembles a chic Mediterranean coastal resort with a hint of Bohemian flair.

In the heart of the Village, just steps away from the shore, Capitola Mercantile awaits you. Mirrored after a European indoor bazaar, Capitola Mercantile offers a diverse selection of one-of-a-kind products and first-rate services, ranging from hand-crafted jewelry and resortwear to artisan sweets, beauty products, unique seashells, gourmet local sausages and of course, surf gear.

Try a fresh and local gourmet sausage at Left Coast Sausage Worx. Get a pick-me-up from the aromatic java at Seaside Coffee. Enjoy old-fashioned hospitality and authentic Tuscan fare at Caruso's. Whether craving the surf or simple pleasures, this charming seaside mercantile will open your eyes to life's richest rewards.
