Casalegno’s Market & Coffee Bar: When Santa Cruz Bound …

On your way down to Santa Cruz on the weekend avoid HWY 17 and take Old San Jose/Soquel Road down past Historic Casalegno’s Market and Coffee Bar (Exit 17 at Summit Road, veer right  back over-top of 17 and then go left at the stop sign).    Mostly mountain locals frequent Casalegno’s Market but it is worth a stop for great coffee, yummy local goods, and for a family owned business experience.  If Chris is working ask him to make you his coffee specialty.  It is superb Ugly Mug coffee.  Then enjoy your java out front at a table in the sunshine and hear some of the history of this Stagecoach stop from a local.  If you are lucky you will catch a BBQ lunch too.

Casalegno’s was a stop on the Stagecoach road to San Jose.

Local Products:

  • Kelly’s French Bakery – Baked Goods
  • Laurel Glen Fruit Farm Fresh Eggs – $6/dozen
