When you are in town then you would like to visit Murrieta’s second oldest home and an iconic cafe dating back more than a century have produced a treasure of antique and historical items, and some of them are available for sale this weekend in Historic Old Town Murrieta. This is the oldest place in the town.

History of Ray’s Murrieta Cafe is that the house, which had fallen into disrepair, was red tagged in 2016. The City was about to take possession of the property & could have been shout down or even bulldozed when a friend of the family and local historian stepped in. Through the efforts of Connie Cain McConnell and cooperation from the Bezanson family and city officials, the Murrieta Valley Historical Society was given permission to clean up the property. This is how this cafe started its operations. Learn more by visiting

The city gave the family a deadline to bring the place up to code, as the building need a lot of modifications as Jeffery Harmon, president of the Murrieta Valley Historical Society, said about the late Ray Bezanson’s son, Skip, in ailing health, and his sister Muriel. We’ve been here for four months now, cleaning the place up. We’ve taken a lot of trash and vegetation out of here. A lot of stuff was left behind. A lot of work was done on this building also Some of the items removed from the house and cafe will be given back to the Bezanson family to its original owners. Some items of historical value will become property of the Historical Society. Much of the rest was placed into 10 large dumpsters. Waste Management donated four 40-foot dumpsters and two 20-foot lowboy dumpsters.

According to some sources recently, a buyer was found for the property. The buyer has posted a sign on the front of the cafe, soliciting offers from someone to lease it and turn it into a restaurant, Harmon said. And the adjacent house? The story goes on & you can visit the place yourself to here the rest.
