An Oasis in a Desert of Tourist Traps.

This hole in the wall cafe is easily the best cup of coffee on the central coast. The baristas are trained on the proper shot pulling techniques as well as proper drink making. The espresso and drink ingredients are all high quality. Warning: If you're looking for Starbucks, this is better, and... read more

Just stopped at "Mon Ami" in Pismo Beach for an iced coffee (US$3.50) on my way through driving from LA to Carmel. Coffee was okay but nothing outstanding, service was friendly and efficient and the place had a bit more appeal than a Starbucks but they had no restroom so had to go to the bar next door to take...

The owner suggests you get one sweet and one savory crepe between the two of you... maybe one total would be fine! Generous, delicious, and popular with the locals. Nice breakfast!

We had breakfast at Mon Ami. We ordered the Morning Delight crepe and the ratatouille crepe. Because the crepes are made to order, there is some wait time. There are two crepe hot plates, so if there are people who have placed their orders ahead of you, you may have to wait a bit for your crepe to be prepared.... More

Such a cute little breakfast/brunch restaurant in the heart of downtown Pismo beach. The staff is super friendly and welcoming made me feel like I was actually in Europe. Their crepes are homemade and cooked right in front of you. It seems like most tourists migrate to splash or other places but I highly recommend coming here to enjoy a... More

How can a place that specializes in coffee not have a restroom? The server said the nearest restroom was at Cafe Splash, an extremely crowded restaurant down the street. Coffee was good, but a panini was just acceptable and overpriced.

My husband and I never knew this place existed, before our recent trip to Pismo. Since I now eat "gluten free", I searched online for places I could eat at, and was excited to try this place, because hubby and I love crepes! It's actually just down the way from Splash...We ended up eating breakfast from there 2 days in... More
