We stopped at CC Gallagher several times over our 3 day visit. They have an eclectic mix of offerings, including a very good selection of wines and craft beer. The food was also very good, we especially enjoyed a pizza with fig and prosciutto, and the cheese plate appetizer was an especially good treat. We look forward to stopping by... More

This place is a wonderful change from the greasy food and cheap Dreyer's ice cream found on the island. Gelato is good and the same price as the aforementioned cheap ice cream (around $5). It doesn't offer happy hours but worth it, with gourmet foods and nice high end items for purchase like Library of Flowers hand creams.

This is a really neat place and trendy. They have a cafe, shopping, art, jewerly, home decor. They serve wine, beer and sake. A really nice place to go a little later in the eveing for a drink, its quite and relaxing after a full day at the beach.

My experience at CC Gallagher's was on my Birthday, so my perception may be a bit clouded. While food varies by location, Catalina's restaurants aren't exactly known for their high level of customer service or quality, they basically know they have a captive audience and just need to be "not the worst." It was a breath of fresh air to... More

Gelato is great - had it multiple times during our last stay. They have cool trinkets and areas to relax. Highly recommend

So, I know it's confusing... this place has either super HIGH or super LOW ratings. So, clearly it depends on what you're looking for. It is a gift shop and a bistro -- and the critiques of their service are right -- it's not great. But it's a great place to go if you have time to hang out and... More

The food at this place is great, there's a lot of interesting food combinations but they almost always get it spot on. The pizzas and sushi are well worth a try. The array of drinks on offer is spectacular as well, as a beer lover I was in my element. The only downside is the price, it's not the cheapest... More

We go to Catalina Island every summer. This is the first year I have tried their sushi, and I have to say it was EXCELLENT. However, of the 6 orders we placed on two different occasions, 3 of them were wrong. And they're pretty slow. But my biggest pet peeve? They refuse to stock anything less than 2% milk for... More

Not only is this place almost a museum of cool art & stuff, it is the go to place for great wines, champagne and some of the best coffee & morning pastry goodies on the island. Really nice sushi in the evening as well. Whenever we are in Avalon this is one of our first stops (usually for good wine)... More

Really good coffee served in large bowls!! What to eat? Ham and cheese croissant, Mediterranean Bagel or smoked salmon bagel. My son Hugh loves the granola, which is excellent.A very interesting shop with good paintings etc and good quality food.
