We saw this place as we were walking around town as it was turning dark. Since it was cold out, a hot cup of coffee and a pastry seemed like a good idea so we went in. The place was very well done, excellent pastry, and the coffee was very good! Service was prompt, and they kept checking to see... More

We like trying different coffee places in town and gave this one a try. Well worth the stop 2-3 days in a row. I enjoyed the atmosphere and ended up sitting outside once. The coffee was good!

Good vibe, good coffee. Relaxing and a quaint location. Students studying "hard" over a coffee and free wifi makes it easy to make contact back home and tell everyone about it.

This place was clean and nice, with outdoor seating on the sidewalk (with umbrellas). They have a decent variety of food and the barista can accommodate custom drink requests.

Okay so its a chain. But its not the monolithic big one down the street. Pumpkin Caramel Pecan Latte got rave reviews from the wife. Very cozy atmosphere with Frank and Dean playing in the background. We went every morning,

I stumbled upon this great coffee place! I am a Starbucks lover, but I also like to experience new places and I enjoy a good cup of coffee no matter where it's from. This is a great place on the corner on the main street in Carlsbad, CA. I had a latte, and for some reason it was extra delicious!... More
