Est. 1888 is one of my favorite shops at the Hotel del Coronado. It's located right near the main lobby and has a great vintage feel to it.
Here I am posing with Josephine (aka Tony Curtis) from the movie "Some Like it Hot". If you haven't seen this movie, OMG, it’s hilarious and such a classic. It also stars Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon. Anyways, they carry all kinds of fun gifts, books, souvenirs and perfumes.
I’m a huge fan of the movie,
but they have lots of other fun gifts.
The ice cream shop, Moo Time Creamery is outstanding!
You can smell the fresh waffle cones every time
you come near this side of the hotel.
A definite destination if you’re visiting the island!
There's a whole wing of stores downstairs
under the lobby of the "del".
The Babcock & Story Emporium is located next to the bar and nearest to the beach and pool area. They have such cute beachy things and a great selection of chocolate, which makes this, as I told my husband, the perfect store for me!
They’re even featuring
Barclay Butera's book, above.
From chocolate to...
... the bakery.
A great place for a morning Starbuck's and a treat!
The bar is a great gathering spot.
Here's where we watched the Stanley Cup Finals
and enjoyed an awesome turkey burger topped
with brie and candied orange peel.
