Mission Pipe Shop is the oldest continuous purveyor of fine cigars, tobacco and smoking accessories in San Jose. Our original location was the old Town & Country Village shopping center, where we lived happily until we were torn down in 2000. We have been at our present location on The Alameda for the past 17 years.
A.J. is our full time man. We stole him from the Pleasanton shop about 9 years ago. His commute is now longer but it gave him a reason to buy his go fast red motorcycle. Now we hear him before we see him. A.J. smokes a pipe in the store and is extremely knowledgeable about the canned and custom blended bulk tobaccos. He also enjoys a daily cigar, usually when he is walking his dog at night.
Brandon grew up in Merced and is one of our full-time tobacco aficionados. With over 11 years working in the cigar and pipe industry he can help you find exactly what you are looking for. Besides smoking cigars and his pipe, Brandon enjoys road biking and the culinary arts. Stop by and say hi to our newest team member!
