About Us

The Cave is a family-owned Destination Smokeshop in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our family has been in the Smoke Shop industry for over two decades, and The Cave is an accumulation of everything we wanted to do: A high-end glass gallery that still has the comfortable neighborhood Smoke Shop feel.

We started from humble beginnings. The original Cave was in a small 400 square foot location on 25th Avenue in San Mateo, CA. Success came early in this endeavor, and we soon moved up the street to our current location at El Camino Real & 25th Avenue. Shortly after you first walk into The Cave, one thing will be clear, we are all about the glass! We take pride in our selection of pieces, which have been curated from the best Pipe Makers and Glass Studios in the world. One can get lost in our massive selection of scientific functional pipes and jaw-dropping artistic pieces. However, our selection does not define us as a shop. We take pride in our customer service and expertise in all the products we carry. Our clerk's are enthusiastic to answer any questions or share what they know about any particular piece.
