The Cave on 2499 El Camino Real

I’ve been to a million head shops and they’re mostly the same—except this one. They customer service there is absolutely unbelievable. And it’s not just one or two employees; it’s all of them. You’d think you were in an Apple Store or something. Mad props to Blake, the owner, for ensuring such a high level of professionalism and customer-centric focus. He’s also an expert (no really, an actual expert) on electronic devices. and all of his employees, whom I’ve done business with each. And of course, they stock every item you can think of at good prices. If they don’t have something, it’s probably because it doesn’t exist.

Staff is always helpful and friendly. This store carries the most extensive supply of glass pipes and accessories. I hope the new law benefits The Cave.
