Cool coffee house in the Los Rios district.

50 yards behind the train station is this fun little coffee house. Good coffees and excellent treats. Also fun for the kids. It is in the Los Rios district, historical homes, museums, childrens zoo, pony riding. It's worth a visit.

A friend and I went to walk through the old town of San Juan. We saw this coffee shop and decided to indulge in a latte and a cup cake. They were both delicious, a little pricey, but delicious.

If you like good coffee and you are in S. OC you know Peete's is typically as good as it gets. This little gem is by the Metrolinks station makes wonderful coffee to be enjoyed in a charming setting in downtown San Juan Cap. Wish I'd discovered it sooner.

Great little independent coffee place that also roasts their own beans. High quality sourced coffee and worth the price especially for the African regions. Reliable internet. Parking is not adjacent as it is tucked away in a residential/tourist area in a very old SJC neighborhood, next to the Amtrak station, called Los Rios. Can get busy 15-20 minutes before the... More

What a lovely local shop! We stopped mid train trip to explore San Juan Capistrano and I wandered in for an afternoon pick me up. Friendly staff, simple menu, and delicious coffee. Best of luck to this shop!

Tucked back behind the train station, this little place is in an old historic bungalow in a lovely garden. Stroll down the street through the shops and end up at this little place for a pastry and a great cup of coffee and watch the trains go by for awhile before driving home.
