Local, that's good, but needs work

This place was recommended by a friend, but we were disappointed. Long wait, poor coffee, poor pastries. Staff was friendly, though, and you got to see the locals. But what's on offer needs improvement.

All round good cafe. Service was ok, very relaxed but quick. Burgers really hit the spot, I had the chilli burger it tasted great. Coffee was fresh and they had plenty of choice, the Brazilian bean was tasty. Plenty of choice cake wise but I was stuffed after the size of the burger.

Decided to get breakfast along with our coffee. My wife got the bacon & egg breakfast meal. The potatoes were cold and the biscuits were over done. I had the pancakes & they were ok. The coffee was just average as well.

They had a great selection of teas and coffees available, a very good price. Unfortunately no time to eat but the bakery looked very tempting.

I was surprised and disappointed reading many of the reviews for HMB Coffee Co. So I'll begin with a disclaimer. For folks expecting Starbucks or Peets or a quaint Napa coffee shop... just keep going. This is Half Moon Bay. You're not in SF or Napa. We have been going to HMB Coffee Co for years. The pastries are consistently... More

Had a nice bowl of cream of asparagus soup and 1/2 a BLT and avocado sandwich on while grain bread. Steady stream of people coming in for food, coffee and desserts!

We went for breakfast three times during our four day stay in HMB. The food is very good, we both enjoyed the breakfasts. I had ham and eggs once, beef fajita omelette once and eggs with breakfast rice once, hubby stuck with his bacon eggs and hash browns. It was really yummy. I enjoy mild coffee and they had it!...

My latte was okay at best. My son ordered a southwestern style wrap, which was decent, but nothing special. Outdoor seating was nice. Probably wouldn't return if in the area again.

My wife and I stayed in Half Moon Bay while I was on a two week training course in Redwood City. Every morning we looked forward to having an excellent coffee and breakfast at Half Moon Bay Coffee Company. I drink espresso or cappuccinos (4 shots - so a good taste of the unadorned coffee) and my wife has a... More
