What’s Open? Support Our Restaurants, Wineries + Shops!

As we embark on this temporary new normal, we are continually reminded at how wonderful and supportive this community is. For those who are able, please continue to support our local businesses. From local deliveries, curbside service, takeout, patio dining, and many more creative ways to serve, Santa Cruz County restaurants and shops are stepping up and they need our support. Take a look at some eateries and shops who are continuing to serve in a safe and compliant way. We will update this list as we hear from our local businesses. And please remember to wear your mask, social distance, and be courteous of those around you and the staff serving. Stay well, folks!

Want more details on how some businesses are reopening with specific safety measures? Visit our website for the latest info on restaurants, shops, and activities that are leading the way with safe openings.
