938 Embarcadero Del Norte hosted Borsodi's Coffeehouse from 1967 to 1989. Since then it's been various restaurants, and now it's the home of a delivery service called Duffl.

Stop N Go Market in the 1969 UCSB yearbook, near where Duffl is today. Caption: "As the neon sign indicates, "Stop n Go" market features hours to match the night owl whims of hungry Isla Vistans. During finals, when all-night studying is in vogue, there is scarcely an open parking space within a block. Lines inside swell with small-time shoppers purchasing soda pop, candy, ice cream, or other energy-boosting "midnight" snacks."

For a while this was Javan's (2010 photo). Aladdin Cafe was a Mediterranean restaurant that opened here in October 2014. Article: Aladdin Café: Garlic, Hummus and Humility at IV’s Newest Eatery.
