A staple of carnivals and country fairs, the elephant ear is a quick and filling snack that is perfect for a mid-day break from the beach. This tiny shop in Seaside’s downtown is all about the freshly-made elephant ear. Kids can get creative with their toppings, from raspberry jam to peanut butter to maple bacon, or simply order the classic cinnamon and sugar. It’s a cheap and tasty way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Parents can grab a coffee here, as well.
Seating is limited, especially with the crowds of summer, so it’s best to buy your elephant ears and make your way back to the beach.
