Swift Street Courtyard
4 reviews of Swift Street Courtyard "About halfway between Lighthouse State Beach and Natural Bridges is the very cool and trendy warehouse area turned into an upscale shopping mecca called the Swift Street Courtyard. It's the perfect place to stop on your way to the beach or in the middle of a bike ride!
Swift Street Courtyard houses a top-notch yoga center (Santa Cruz Yoga) and a number of artsy shops, wineries, and el Salchichero -- the Santa Cruz community butcher, specializing in fine meats and handcrafted charcuterie.
We recently spent the afternoon wine-tasting here and discovered excellent quality wines and friendly service. (Don't forget Copious and Equinox, a short walk across and down Swift Street.)
* Bonny Doon Vineyards
* Odonata Wines
* MJA Vineyards

* Vino Tabi Winery
For those who prefer a different type of beverage, Santa Cruz Brewery is located on the premises, as well as Kelly's French Bakery for excellent sandwiches and pastries. The New Leaf Community Market offers deli lunches for easy picnicking at the beach. And if you're interested in a more formal sit-down venue, Cellar Door shares the beautiful interior space with Bonny Doon and serves up small plates, wood-fired pizza, a prix fixe menu with wine pairings, and delicious entrees such as striped bass with bok choy, carrots and quinoa. There's definitely something for everyone at Swift Street Courtyard!"
