Seaside’s slogan is, “It’s Easy To Seaside” and that is so true! When you come stay at our inn you can park your car and only need to drive to a few destinations.

Seaside is a small town with a population of 6,707 and really has a small town feel. Everyone is friendly and the shops are within walking distance.

Our favorite places to go:

Food:

Las Olas - Great Mexican food
Tora Sushi Lounge - Affordable sushi!
Nonni’s Bistro - Italian food - romantic, sweet atmosphere
Maggie’s On The Prom - This is a beachfront restaurant that’s really best enjoyed in the summer when you can sit outside.

Times Theater - This is a movie theater that shows movies but it’s also a good place for food and drink even when there is no movie. We wrote a post here. Check it out.

Coffee Shops and Breakfast:

Seaside Coffee Roasters - It’s really close by the inn. Less than 2 blocks, which makes for a great morning walk. They have all of your coffee, tea, smoothie, breakfast sandwich, most of your basic pastry needs covered.
Dough Dough - Across the street from Seaside Coffee Roasters is a great pastry shop that offers a wide assortment of pastries including vegan and gluten free options.

Favorite Place To Shop In Seaside

One of our very favorite places to shop in Seaside is Moxie Shine Fair Trade.

The owner, Sedona does a great job of always having fun new goodies in her store. She offers many handmade items in her store at surprisingly affordable prices.

At the moment the store is full of jewelry and other small tidbits - like bags, blank books, unusual pencils, soap, essential oils and scents and so much more!

This is one of the staples we buy from her store. These are incense matches and they pretty much summarize the store’s style: unique, original and totally affordable.

Most of the earrings are around $20! So extremely affordable and as you can see the selection is varied and cool.

We are always testing out a new essential oil/perfume scent from there and we usually buy them once we smell them because Sedona does a great job of curating everything in her store.

This is Sedona, the store owner. She’s very helpful and usually has a large selection of clothing that actually fit real women’s bodies. At the moment she’s lighter on wearables because she says in January most people don’t want to take off their coats and try on clothing. Next time you are in Seaside check out her store and if you stay at Starry Night Inn Sedona offers a 15% discount to guests who spend $50 or more in the store.

This is the store front of Sedona’s store. It’s 2 blocks from the inn on Broadway. There are yoga classes in the back of this building too, but that’s not Sedona it’s Seaside Yoga, which offers great classes.
