“Our local general store carries all the basics. A good place for groceries, sandwiches, local meats, wines and cheeses. ”
“In Duncan Mills...Cafe Fear Cafe offers a California Cuisine with a Southern flair serving breakfast and lunch. Another favorite is Gold Coast Coffee & Bakery and on Sundays live music in the summer on Patio at the Blue Heron Bar & Tavern. Where the locals go.”
