Every now and then you come upon a cool little spot that makes you want to keep it all to yourself so that it does not get overrun. Unfortunately the temptation to share is always too strong for me. I want others to enjoy the places I discover and Cafe Aquatica in Jenner is absolutely worthy a stop if you are craving a great cup of coffee or a light snack.
Only a few miles from Bodega Bay, Jenner is a tiny town with a population of around 136 people. Perched on a bluff above where the Russian River meets the sea, Jenner has beautiful views, amazing sunsets and world class birdwatching. Every spring the ocean waves and the rivers flow create a large sand spit at the mouth of the river Russian River Estuary home to pacific harbor seals, pelicans, ospreys and great blue herons. All of this is what you see while sitting and sipping your coffee at Cafe Aquatica.
