Cayucos History

Cayucos’ history begins with the Chumash and Salinan people who first settled here, thousands of years before Europeans arrived. The word cayucos comes from the Spanish for the canoes those first residents used, as named by early explorers. The famed Portola expedition camped near Cayucos in the mid-18th century, and many other explorers passed through as well. In 1867, Captain James Cass made the founding of Cayucos official, as we know it today. With the local dairy industry growing, he took advantage of Cayucos’ ideal position and built a port from which to ship goods. He established a warehouse and built the Cayucos Pier for steamers to collect and dispatch shipments across California. Many of Cayucos’ dairy farms ― and descendents from those ranching families ― remain in the area today. Captain Cass’ home also stands downtown, restored into a charming restaurant, inn and event venue called Cass House Cayucos. https://www.youtube.com/embed/4DzL8hhRVVU

Eat in Downtown Cayucos

The Grill at The Cass House

An elegant stop on any itinerary, Cass House Cayucos combines rich history with fresh flavors. Dine at The Grill, where local, seasonal ingredients meet a curated international wine list. Or visit the Cass House Bakery, where muffins, scones, quiche and focaccia are baked fresh daily. Find the Cass House Cayucos at the north end of North Ocean Avenue. Cass House Grill Cayucos Sea Shanty in Cayucos

Sea Shanty

A visit to Cayucos deserves a meal at this beloved casual eatery. Grab breakfast or a cup of coffee (do not miss the world-famous cinnamon rolls!) before a walk on the beach. Or, if you’re hunting down lunch or dinner, get a tall burger, juicy steak, or crispy fish ‘n chips. If dessert is your thing, you’ll struggle to pick just one from the Sea Shanty’s many decadent desserts. (Try the “Rocky Mountain High Pie” with marshmallow-rice crust, rocky road ice cream, hot fudge, peanut butter and white chocolate topping. Or the “Mudd Pie,” with chocolate cookie crust and butter pecan ice cream.) As you lick your spoon, check out the ceiling’s 1,000 hanging ball caps, or enjoy the comfort of the heated patio. Find the Sea Shanty on South Ocean Avenue, at the corner of Ocean Avenue and North 3rds Street.

Ruddell’s Smokehouse

A favorite of Sunset Magazine, Westways, and even Bobby Flay of the Food Network, this pint-sized eatery makes a big impression. Just a few steps from the sand, Ruddell’s smokes a range of meats ― think oysters, ahi, chicken and pork. Then, those meats are sold for take-away, or they get folded into decadent tacos made with house sauce and fresh salsa. The local favorite? Smoked albacore tacos. But vegetarians, never fear: Ruddell’s has you covered with smoked black bean tacos. Find Ruddell’s at the corner of Ocean Front Street and D Street, overlooking Cayucos State Beach. Ruddell's Smokehouse in Cayucos Brown Butter Cookie Company Cayucos

Brown Butter Cookie Company

This one-of-a-kind sweet shop claims that “butter makes everything better.” If that’s true, the Brown Butter Cookie Company makes its customers feel like a million bucks. Crafted from a short list of ingredients ― browned butter, sugar, flour and sea salt ― these cookies have fans worldwide. Try the original Brown Butter Cookie, or venture out into other flavors like espresso, almond, cinnamon and coconut lime. For those who go gluten-free, the Brown Butter Cookie Company bakes several flavors without gluten. So grab a sample in the shop or purchase a box to bring home...if they make it that far. Find the Brown Butter Cookie Company on North Ocean Avenue, between D and E Streets.

Old Cayucos Tavern

While the Cass House shows Cayucos’ elegant history, the Old Cayucos Tavern shows its more rugged side. Established in 1906, in the wake of the California Gold Rush, this cowboy saloon still attracts visitors from far and wide. Sit at the bar, enjoy live music, or head to the back rooms for poker on Friday and Saturday nights. Marvel at the many hundreds of dollar bills stuck to ceiling, or the “interesting” art on the walls. (You have to see to understand.) No matter what you do at the Old Cayucos Tavern, you’re sure to get a taste of its long history ― and a stiff drink. Find the Old Cayucos Tavern on North Ocean Avenue between D Street and Cayucos Drive. Cayucos town at night Cayucos Main Street

Cafe della Via

Schooner’s

A fan favorite, Schooner’s has served fresh seafood, steaks, fish ‘n chips and burgers since 1993.

Schooner's Restaurant in Cayucos, CA

Duckie’s Chowder House

If you love clam chowder, you’ll be in clam heaven at Duckie’s. Here, they dish up both New England chowder (cream-based) and Manhattan Clam Chowder (tomato-based)l. To up the ante, try your chowder “Nolan-style” with bacon and croutons. Duckie’s also offers fish tacos, steamers and fish ‘n chips, as well as salads, sandwiches and sides. Wash it all down with a locally-made beer or glass of wine from their drinks list. And don’t forget the little duckies!

Learn to shop and create "Locavore" meals from a Farmers Market with this tour!

A Locavore has been defined as a person who enjoys eating only locally produced food grown within 100 miles of its point of purchase or consumption. The thought (and delight) is to eat healthier while also learning how to contribute to reducing the use of fossil fuels, which results in the release of less carbon dioxide into the air; this all helps to prevent global warming. Come do your part for the day, have fun, learn more, and dine deliciously healthy!

This annual special excursion starts at The Casitas Estate in Arroyo Grande. It includes an enthusiastic chef-led outing to the local Farmers Market in Arroyo Grande to learn how to source and shop local wherever you travel. The group (locals and vistors) then take a quick trip via shuttle back to The Casitas Estate to jointly create a tasty and luxurious farm-fresh vegetarian lunch. Participants enjoy taking in the hilltop views, the fine wine and warm breezes. Gaze out over the Arroyo Grande Valley vineyards and Santa Lucia mountains, often described as California's "bit of Tuscany" here on the Central Coast.

A portion of the fee is contributed to the non-profit Central Coast Grown organization, whose vision is to restore people's connection with the land and the food it produces in order to nourish the bodies, minds, and spirits of our communities and to sustain the landscape that supports us all.

Gain a deeper connection on vacation through activities and charitable donation opportunities that protect wildlife, habitat, and cultural heritage sites.
This activity selection includes:
*A learning activity and/or outing

According to local legend, about 10 acres of the ranch were cleared during WWI and apricots were planted. When Will Carlton and Chris Anderson came to the ranch, only five of the ancient, gnarled trees were still hanging on. Now, where their companions once stood, 10 different varietals of Northern Italian olive trees grow.

About 30 acres of the ranch remains untouched as a woodland wildlife preserve. This diverse habitat is home to deer, foxes, bob cats, coyotes, raccoons, the occasional cougar, myriad birds and many more. The flora includes coast live oak, Edna manzanita, toyon, hummingbird sage and mountain mahogany, to name just a few.

Visit the ranch and taste its olive oil. Tiber Canyon Ranch is open by appointment, and a call the day before would be appreciated.

Cayucos History

Cayucos’ history begins with the Chumash and Salinan people who first settled here, thousands of years before Europeans arrived. The word cayucos comes from the Spanish for the canoes those first residents used, as named by early explorers. The famed Portola expedition camped near Cayucos in the mid-18th century, and many other explorers passed through as well. In 1867, Captain James Cass made the founding of Cayucos official, as we know it today. With the local dairy industry growing, he took advantage of Cayucos’ ideal position and built a port from which to ship goods. He established a warehouse and built the Cayucos Pier for steamers to collect and dispatch shipments across California. Many of Cayucos’ dairy farms ― and descendents from those ranching families ― remain in the area today. Captain Cass’ home also stands downtown, restored into a charming restaurant, inn and event venue called Cass House Cayucos. https://www.youtube.com/embed/4DzL8hhRVVU

Sea Shanty

A visit to Cayucos deserves a meal at this beloved casual eatery. Grab breakfast or a cup of coffee (do not miss the world-famous cinnamon rolls!) before a walk on the beach. Or, if you’re hunting down lunch or dinner, get a tall burger, juicy steak, or crispy fish ‘n chips. If dessert is your thing, you’ll struggle to pick just one from the Sea Shanty’s many decadent desserts. (Try the “Rocky Mountain High Pie” with marshmallow-rice crust, rocky road ice cream, hot fudge, peanut butter and white chocolate topping. Or the “Mudd Pie,” with chocolate cookie crust and butter pecan ice cream.) As you lick your spoon, check out the ceiling’s 1,000 hanging ball caps, or enjoy the comfort of the heated patio.

But vegetarians, never fear: Ruddell’s has you covered with smoked black bean tacos. Find Ruddell’s at the corner of Ocean Front Street and D Street, overlooking Cayucos State Beach.
