the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014 and then, again, on January 1st of 2016, with familiar faces behind the counter ! It is mostly the same menu and store layout.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market.  They have on hand some delicious cookies, pastries, and brownies (baked in house) ::::  check out the counter ! They also bake Pizza to order. The coffee service and soft drink dispenser has been moved to the back of the store and there is a nice table that seats four.

NEWS FLASH  ::  The  Creston Pool  opened  Saturday  June 11th and closes on August 21st.  This is the best place to be during our hot summer days -- lots of shade and places to lie down and rest, or sit in a good chair and read. If you do not know where the community Owned Pool is located,  look behind the Elementary School Office on O'Donovan, along the chain link fence. There are a few shade Pop Up canopies along the edge of the pool and quite a few plastic chairs. Wonderfully clean and nice Life Guards, too.  You cannot beat the price:   free entrance to local residents. Why?  Because of cash donations !! If you do not live in Creston, the cost is exactly  $1 per day. We have one lady from Atascadero who swims every day !
    you can still make a donation -  make out your check to "Creston Community Association"  and snail mail to      PO  Box  84,  Creston,   CA   93432          Everyone appreciates it !
