Their fresh pastries and fruit to go are great with your tea or coffee. Convenient and quick service.

Wow, talk about sad: I just found out this location had closed. So this becomes a eulogy for the Del Mar Pannikin. This was my favorite of the Pannikin locations. The coffee was good, the snacks were good, there was plenty of parking. There was a lot of outdoor seating and plenty of entertaining people watching, if that was your... More

Since I drink my coffee black, I can tell you this is excellent coffee, well-roasted. I love the old train station, filled with interesting art, unique gifts, and locals who have been going for years! The pastries are all home-made; the gluten-free muffins - esp the pumpkin ones - are delicious! The eggs are an acquired taste as they are... More

Worth the stair climb to get there. Great selection of teas as well as coffees, and better ambiance than Starbucks. Very likeable staff.

This is a wonderful place for the atmosphere and best cherry pie around. The line gets long on weekends but can move fast with lots of seating. The eggs are steamed so if you dont like that get the smoked salmon plate or one of many delecious sweets.

I hadn't been here in over 20 years, but was in the area, so just for nostalgia's sake I stopped in. While it's no longer the quiet, locals-only haunt, the coffee is still just add good and the pastries still house made. Highly recommend it!

This was our second visit to Pannikin Coffee & Tea. The location attracts a variety of patrons. Some are jogging, some are on bicycles and many seem to come from the beach. After many years of drinking coffee I know exactly which coffee I prefer. When you come you are overwelmed by the selections in both coffee and tea. They... More

The coffee here is pretty good. The food is not. the desserts look good but they are far too "earthy" to be very tasty. It is standard fare but does have good atmosphere.

As I work across the street, it is a treat for us to visit Pannikin. The baristas are always pleasant and the coffee is excellent.
