expensive ice cream, but delicious Lappart flavors and reasonably sized scoops

I would give this business a 3.8 for the scoop size and the flavor choice, tho the prices are steep, so while we will probably come again this time, it is more a treat yourself kind of thing rather than a regular stop. My spouse and I were looking for some good ice cream, and the Rite Aid... read more

I love a good coffee house. I enjoy sitting and watching the people in an outdoor setting. The coffee Importers has it all. Great coffee, I had two, and a fun outdoor setting at the Dana Point Harbor. There were many customers, children and dogs. Hikers and water enthusiasts strolled by. The service, you order your coffee and wait for... More

My husband and I were strolling around the marina and stopped for an iced mocha....it was really good! Great location to sit and enjoy the view and watch the world go by! Would recommend anyone to stop at The Coffee Importers.

This little place sits on the docks of Dana Point marina and offers a better quality of coffee in various styles. Prices are decent. And you get to sit outside to enjoy. RIght beside the coffee shop, there is an excellent breakfast and lunch emporium where you can get bagels, pastries and sandwitches to accompany your coffee. Oh! and they... More

We were looking for a quiet place to relax and grab some Ice Cream. This was a good choice, suggested by the Dana Point Chamber, Visitor Center. Nice location and you can see many boats, Yachts, etc.

There's something about breakfast on a harbor boardwalk that's heavenly. Add gourmet coffee and your favorite dog in Dana Point... nothing beats it. That's what The Coffee Importers offers, every time! The indoor area is cozy and well-decorated. The main side entrance door still doesn't close well, so it's hard to abide by the sign that says 'please keep door... More

I love coffee ! I love to be surprised by a tasty, wonderful, delicious cup of coffee, or cappuccino. And the first selection on the menu, the Cappuccino Royale ! is awesome. I would recommend 150%. The location of this place at the Dana Point Harbor is perfect, you can enjoy anytime of day. The ordering process can get a... More

I have visited the coffee importers twice and it is a brilliant spot for a morning bagel down by the harbour. Tasty menu and good coffee. The only downfall is there can be long Q's.

Food is worth the wait in line. Absolutely great breakfast sandwiches and beverages, at a reasonable price, with comfortable outside dining.

I went here on vacation back to Orange County, where I lived for 20 years. I have never been here before (unfortunately for me) but decided to use Trip Advisor as I had a boat charter that day. Wow is this place awesome, it was in the back of the marina shopping center, and made the best latte I have... More
