Cottage #15: The Whistle Stop (The Beachcomber)
Cottage #15: The Whistle Stop (The Beachcomber)NAMED BY A TRAIN ENGINEER IN THE 1930S, COTTAGE #15 NOW SERVES UP CASUAL MEALS ON THE BEACH
Beachcomber Café building is an historic cottage with a timeline that dates back to 1931. Mr. Mitchell, a train engineer, set up an electric model train that circled the Whistle Stop sign; in later years, Doug and Vivian Falzetti started an annual casino night that transformed the Whistle Stop cottage into a gambling hall on New Year’s Eve for the Covites.
Today, the party continues: After a stint as the Cottage Café beginning in late 2005, Cottage #15 is now known to locals and visitors alike as The Beachcomber Café. As a result of CCA’s partnership with The Beachcomber, more than 150,000 people annually are able to enjoy a casual meal on the beach.
