This Old House

Blondie's Coffee House Building c1940

This old house is part of the historical age of Camino, CA. Built in the early 1900’s, it was used for the track auto and section cars of the Michigan-California Lumber Co. Railroad. Upon exiting the Camino lumbermill, railcars that needed to be serviced entered a turnstile and were parked and serviced at this location.

Remnants of the turnstile pad still remain beneath where our dining area sits today, and portions of the narrow-gauge tracks were salvaged and used to line the perimeter of Blondie’s parking lot.

Our Story


Like many great ideas, Blondie’s Coffee House started at the kitchen table. We had a dream of opening a small-town, local coffee shop with some personality... Not a Starbucks. Not a drive-thru coffee shack… A real coffee shop, that would serve as a gathering place for locals and visitors alike. So in 2019, we purchased a coffee shop in the small town of Camino, tore it apart and rebuilt from the ground up (literally), and were simply amazed at what blossomed in front of us.

Today, Blondie's Coffee House is one of the most popular coffee shops in the area, earning it's title of "the" coffee shop in Camino.

Our Family

Owned by a local husband/wife duo, Blondie's Coffee House is all about family. Our family offers a broad range of personality and expertise that makes Blondie's unique and welcoming, from our parents & siblings working behind the counter, to our 4 children often found tidying up or striking up conversation with our guests... Right down to the coffee beans, expertly roasted by our uncle, owner of LightHouse Coffee out of Sparks, NV.
