Ruby’s Crystal Cove Shake Shack

American in Crystal Cove State Park

Although this been-here-forever wooden snack stand is now owned by the Ruby’s Diner chain, the shakes – and the ocean views – are as good as ever. Don’t fear the date shake; it’s delish. They also serve three squares a day (burgers, fries, etc) and a kids menu.

The shack is just east of the Crystal Cove/Los Trancos entrance to the state park’s historic district.
