I love the deserts here. The double chocolate cake and the blue berry cobbler are superb! Such a chill vibe and a great place to drink some coffee. Alta is the jam!

I walk here frequently from my house to run in and get an iced chai. The atmosphere is not really my thing but they make great coffee and the place is always packed. They do a decent breakfast burrito too!

Absolutely great coffee and food. Homemade bread, just like Mom used to make. Excellent variety of breakfast entrees. Love the waffle, eggs benedict, granola, omelets ... and coffee, wow!!! Lots of varieties of the world's finest coffees.

It was the day after Thanksgiving. We were in the area for a visit and discovered Alta Coffee. This turned out to be a good find. The cozy atmosphere is lively with chatter. We found the No Cell Phone please signs to be very refreshing! The poached eggs were delicious and the strawberry jam tasted homemade! My friend enjoyed the... More

Busy with locals as early as 8am, this is a popular local hangout (not only) for breakfast. Food was very good, coffee - well, American; yet the setting and friendly atmoshere made up for it. I suppose the place must be packed in peak hours, yet from my brief visit I´d say there is a reason. At selected nights, there´s... More

This neighborhood favorite was the site of a recent meeting that happened to run over into the dinner hour. We decided to keep it light with bowls of the soup of the day, chicken vegetable. I specifically asked if it had pasta in it and was told no. No cutlery or napkins were offered and we had to request twice!... More

I don't need a putdown with my morning coffee by a barista. "Oh, you must be a Starbucks person. We don't call it a doppio." No, I'm not a Starbucks person and it is called a doppio in many places throughout the world. Worse yet was the drink itself; made from beans that were over roasted. May be a nice... More

Alta Coffee is a great little spot to visit for breakfast, lunch or in the evening for coffee or tea. Sometimes I like popping in in the morning for a croissant and taking it to the beach. This is not a Starbucks at all. The cafe serves a full breakfast and lunch menu. In the evenings they will always have... More
