Joe mommas uses intelligentsia coffee and always has a decent offering of single origin coffee and the blackcat espresso. This is a great local spot to hit for good coffee or espresso based beverages. They also sale coffee for use at home if you came without Java.

Quiet, cute little coffee house to enjoy a few refreshments. All the beverages at the big chains but with a local touch.

Took a minute or two to get acknowledged by the guy that was cleaning the place before he stopped cleaning to take our order. No, "hello, how you doing"; just a, "what can I get you". The... More

Starbuck's eat your heart out. Open early for those of us who can't as yet beat the early morning habit. Advantage is you can have your early morning coffee and watch the dolphins in the bay. Really nice pastries. The (unfrosted) cinnamon rolls are very tasty without being overly sweet. The scones that we had were excellent. And the coffee... More

To start off the coffee is great and service was polite and fun to talk to. So why do I use the word bad? Well the owner can be a little rude, and when I say a little I mean a lot. We had bought coffees and food early in the morning and were now catching up on some studying... More

Best coffee on the Central Coast....or maybe anywhere. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff. They know their coffee and how to make the best espressos,pulled to perfection. Latte art on every cup is perfection
