With its one gas pump, line of chairs and overspilling flower boxes smack bang in the middle of town. Sums up this town pictorially.

There really isn’t much to see inside the store other than the usual touristy type stuff. The old gas pump outside the store was in great shape and made walking to the store worth it.

The Los Olivos General Store is located as the middle of this small town. The exterior decor really stands out and catches your eye. The staff are very attentive and this is a place to definitely see when you get there.

Was excited to visit this shop as had heard it was packed with locally made goods and housewares. Not true, unfortunately. Would rather shop elsewhere and give my money to local artisans.

Better get there early if you want the daily smoked meat sandwich. We settled for a pastrami sandwich as they were already sold out. It was delicious! There are many local wines for sale as well, good prices.
