Cameron's Inn, Half Moon Bay

We happened upon Cameron's on a trip to see the elephant seals at Ano Nuevo. This is another story, but if you haven't seen the seals, and happen to be in California during their Dec-Feb birthing season, it's most definitely worth the trip.

As we made our way down the coast, we spotted the red double decker. Hmmm, that seemed a little out of the ordinary, so we doubled back to uncover just how jolly British this little Half Moon Bay spot could be. With a huge list of UK beers on tap, English paraphernalia all around, and a hearty fare that included pasty pies, it felt very British indeed. It was a chilly day, and we were happy to find a nook by the fake fireplace. Hey, it was cold enough that we could be warmed by the aesthetics of fire! This is a great place to get a really decent pint, and the burgers come with the added bonus of a trip to the condiment bar...a spread that rivals the Sizzler's buffet!

A few years back, California passed a law that prohibits smoking in restaurants. To keep the Bobbies away and appease their fag-smokin' customers, the clever folks at Cameron's turned one of their double deckers into a smoking bus. So, not to fear, discontinued London double deckers may find long life and happiness in innovative California!
