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.
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 your 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 are 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 (Go Kings!) and enjoyed an awesome turkey burger topped with brie and candied orange peel. Yum!
