Gilley's and the Bakery

Further down N. Santa Cruz, there was a wonderful bakery. I used to buy shepherd's rolls, and then walk down to Vasona and share them with the ducks.

A little further down was Gilley's Coffee Shoppe. I never actually went there, but my friends did and loved it. Then there was the Loma Prieta quake of 1989. I walked downtown a few weeks later (when they finally opened it back up) and looked in the window and thought "there is no way that will ever open up again."

I'm proud to say that they did. And they're still open. I wonder if they're the longest opened store there.

I was shocked when Bears in the Woods closed.
I'll have to poke around down there and see if Round Table Pizza is still open. They were one of the last ones to use corn meal on the bottom of the crust.
