Join visitors from around the globe and stop for picnic lunches and Made in Mendocino specialty foods. The Elk Store has a fresh look, while maintaining its country grocery charm. Step inside onto its original wood floors where the “creak” announces your arrival. Northern California chèvre, Brie, roast turkey, salumi, smoked salmon and more fill the antique mahogany and enamel deli case, a vintage find from 1930s San Francisco. Choose from paninis and sandwiches featuring their house-smoked meats and then browse the shelves and tables full of intriguing “only in Mendocino” items. Food in hand, cross Highway 1 and head down to Greenwood State Beach where you can watch for whales and enjoy the sea air! While in Elk — also known as the town with two names — stop in at the Greenwood Center Visitor Museum and make a date to return for A Great Day in Elk!
