Beachcomber Restaurant Crystal Cove

The Beachcomber Restaurant is located in historic cottage number 15 at Crystal Cove State Park. After a remodel the restaurant opened its doors in 2006, five years after the last full time residents were forced to leave the cottages.

Cottage 15 was known as the "Whistle Stop" and built in 1931. An early resident of the cottage was a train engineer who set up a model train that was popular with cove kids. Another resident of cottage 15 was artist Artist Vivian Falzetti who used the blue cottage number 46 as her art studio. Doug Falzetti was the unofficial mayor of the cove arranging everything from boardwalk clean up to special events.
