In the heart of the Capitola Village, just steps away from the shore and 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 resort wear to artisanal sweets, beauty products, unique seashells, and of course, surf gear. It also houses popular wine bar, Cava, and Italian restaurant, Caruso’s. Sip and savor a glass of wine at Cava Wine Bar. Get a pick-me-up from the aromatic java at Seaside Coffee.
