Mr. Toots Coffee and Ocean View

Look for the Margaritaville sign (has a big parrot on it) on the outside of the building. The entrance to Mr. Toots is adjacent to the Margaritaville entrance. Once inside the door, you walk up a steep flight of steps to the coffee shop. Taller people need to duck down in order to avoid bumping... read more

We love ambling around Capitola downtown, sit and gaze at the beach for easy people watch and just linger. the restaurants all over the downtown area will FIT your... More

I have been coming here since 84 and have to say it is the best coffee house anywhere. I love this place and always have. Thank you for all of the memories.

Mr Toots is your extra Den...play some Banana-Grams or Scrabble....chess anyone? Coffe, tea or hot chocolate your senses will be delighted. A small balcony graces the room with a nice view of the ocean. Snacks such as pie, cake or quiche make a nice pairing with e coffee.

I liked the funkiness of the place and the location. I would have liked a healthier selection of breakfast food.

We were staying at the hotel across the street & popped in for an afternoon coffee. Cool little spot- I can see plopping down w/ my book or computer for the afternoon. But we were just walking through. My husband had a good espresso & I had a great latte. I'm a fan of traditional laid back coffee houses and... More

If you have a place near the window you will have a nice view over the beach. However, the coffee is not so good and the french toast is also nothing special.

I don't drink coffee but my husband and daughter in law do. Amanda had a vanilla latte and raved about it. Husband had a regular coffee and he seemed happy too.

I always stop in when visiting Capitola. Good iced mochas. Great view of beach/ocean from their patio. I like how this place is upstairs on the 2nd floor; it just gives it a neat, unique feeling. The staff is always friendly, and the environment/vibe of the place is very welcoming and comfortable. Free wifi is always wonderful to have, but... More

It's close to the beach and so convenient, but we thought that neither the coffee nor the pastries were particularly good. It's up on the second floor and somehow a bit dark and dingy. OK if you're in the neighborhood, but not worth a special trip.
