Directly across from McDonalds (why go there?); even though we were provided a free hot breakfast at our hotel (Best Western) we decided to enjoy our breakfast here! Why? For the past upteen years, I have been having my breakfast in Fortuna each time that I visit. This place has an outstanding patio to relax, talk and eat. The home... More

We waited almost 15 minutes for someone to take our DRINK orders. After 30minutes, we were able to put in food orders, but then waited an hour to get the food. Awful service. Only time anyone payed attention was when it was time to pay the bill. Will not recommend or return to Hot Brew.

We stopped going their a couple years ago.. A friend of ours just got sick from their clam chowder. We stopped going their because the food was served cold a lot of the time, and slow service at that.

I go to this restaurant less than once a year to see I the service gets any better. Once again they failed. We walked out after waiting way too long for our food. Maybe we will try it again in another year.

Stopped at Hot Brew for breakfast. One of the best we have had. Good attentive service, great fruit platter accompanying the main course. Great collection of coffee. A little gem tucked in the middle of Fortuna. The staff is attentive and cares about the food and the service. Highly recommended.

The food is fantastic! There are lots of choices, both vegetarian and not. The portions are generous. The waitpeople are friendly, helpful, attentive. They offer several different delicious serve yourself "regular" coffee as well as the fancy coffee drinks. I give Hot Brew 5 stars on food and service, but the bathroom situation is awful. That is why I didn't... More

This was our second time having lunch here. The portion sizes are absolutely HUGE, so you may want to share a meal. Good homemade, comfort style food. This time we enjoyed the chicken fried steak sandwich which was very tasty. There is a really fun outdoor patio with umbrellas, which we enjoyed this warm summer visit. Our waitress was beyond...

Recently, we called Hot Brew and asked for reservations for ten. This was following a family gathering with family from the East Coast, Mexico, and California. The wide selection available offered something delicious for every guest. Our meals were served promptly, with courteous, patient service, and in a timely manner. The generous portions surprised several family members and all were... More
