The Corner Store has been on San Pedro's Peninsula since 1947. What was once a dusty run-down market is now the most charming little sunny market/cafe in this cute little neighborhood by the sea. It has the best coffee in town and is now a place for people to meet for tea or coffee and fresh baked pastries.

Clean San Pedro, the organization that keeps San Pedro beautified, was born at The Corner Store and many problems have been solved over a latte and a scone. In fact, it's a great place to meet, whether in a group, just a few, or just two.
