An American Restaurant & Alehouse

Built by Thomas Cremer in 1874, The Cremer House is the oldest building in downtown Felton. For many years it functioned as the Grand Central Hotel, a restaurant, bar, and boarding house run by Thomas and his wife, Margaret. Rich with history, the building has been preserved and restored to create the perfect setting for an American Restaurant & Alehouse. Owners Bob Locatelli and Emily Thomas bring together natural foods and organic beer by joining the practices of New Leaf Market and Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing to create the Cremer House as it is today. We serve hearty dinners and bountiful lunches inspired by classic American recipes: homemade and traditional. We also showcase a variety of 25 craft beers on tap, ciders, wines, and homemade sodas. From the outdoor patio to inside at the bar, The Cremer House is the perfect spot to enjoy a handcrafted beverage and a thoughtfully prepared meal in a small town outlined by redwoods.

Organic Matters

We believe in supporting and protecting organic farmers. Better for farms, better for the environment, better for you – and it tastes better too.
