Always Stop for Coffee

We often drive to Half Moon Bay and always stop here for coffee and a pastry. We stopped on june 26, 2015. The coffee is brewed the way we like it, but they only had small or large size ceramic cups, and the small cup was pretty small. However, the lemon pastry was perfectly delicious, and we've... read more

A nice place to stop and visit with friends. Great coffee bar with super yummy drinks. Lots of folks there for breakfast which looked very good. Went to get water from dispenser which is located next to order station, an obviously sick child was helping himself to water, coughing all over the dispenser, and then put his cup back in... More

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!
