The Record, Point Arena's sparkling, relatively new organic deli/market/cafe. There's a wall of organic produce including seasonal fruits and vegetables as well as occasional rare and exotic things. There's a freezer containing gelato, soy ice cream, and gourmet ice cream, as well as some good old Ben and Jerry's. There are crackers, cookies, beans, juice, smoothies, yogurt, soy products, always free samples, bath items, bulk flours and nuts, organic sugars, smoked salmon, on and on -- I didn't even mention the cafe's wonderful sandwiches, salads, coffee, sweets, and smoothies!
Favorite Dish: Strawberry-banana-mango smoothie made with soymilk; chicken pesto panini; Record reuben panini; Goddess salad.

The Record is an all-organic market with a variety of wholesome foods. Attached is a deli and a cafe with coffee, sandwiches & fresh baked goods. We stopped in for their tasty coffee which was relatively cheap at around $2.50 for a medium cafe latte. We ended up drinking our coffee near the lighthouse along the water.

This little bakery is a magical place ..... wonderful sweets (some imported from France, others made on the premises) delicious teas, and a magical feel. The owner once had a tea shop in France, and has moved closer to home with her daughter Franny .... see the theme? The shop is named after the owner's daughter. Various types of baked foods for take away are offered - the selection just depends on the day - but gourmet pizza seems to be a bit of a staple.
The shop is small and is filled with magical items from all over ...... special sugars, designer teas, candy bars with sparkling fairies atop, chocolate covered fruits .... combine to make entry into the shop a bit overwhelming (but in a great way).
So while wandering Main St., if you notice this shop is open, I say GO!! Get a munchy, a great cuppa and enjoy visiting with the shop keeper :)

Wow, so, where do I start? The Point Arena Bakery has gone through many changes and different people running it, but now it's returned to its roots. The daughter of the owners of the bakery (who were the first people to open it), Franny, has taken over and turned the place into something unique, charming, and welcoming. Franny and Adam are the absolute nicest people you'll ever meet. The interior has pink walls in various shades, things like chutney and jam on the shelves, and it smells divine when you step inside.
Favorite Dish: There are all kinds of goodies to choose from! On Fridays and Saturdays they make pizza. There's cheesecake, brownies of different kinds, Danish, parsley cheese puffs, cinnamon twists, sun-dried tomato and mozzarella twists, lemon bars, shortbread, chocolate ginger crinkles...Go see for yourself! This place is such a great addition to Point Arena.

This isn't a restaurant, but the local senior center. If you are in the area, find out if they are having one of their wonderful abalone breakfast fundraisers!
Abalone used to be harvested directly from the local beaches, but now divers must go out to collect them. There is a strict limit. When they are caught breaking the law of limits, the catch is confiscated and donated to local organizations. The Druid Hall in Point Arena is one of these charities.
Members of the hall, as well as other locals prepare the abalone by pounding away and serve them with eggs. Last time I was there, it cost less than 10$ a plate ..... I have never found abalone that cheap anywhere else!! This is a major fundraising event, and all of the locals know when it is occuring. There is no schedule, as it depends upon when they receive a donation.
Favorite Dish: Abalone, of course!
