A little treasure when you find it

This is the place you dream about when you are on vacation. Someplace out of the way, yet convenient to get to. Loads of atmosphere, with a train station, a public garden and a world famous mission right near by. And I haven't mentioned the artisan shops and cool little neighborhood you can walk... read more

Take the Amtrack Pacific Surfline towards San Diego & disembark in San Juan Capistrano. You'll be in awe of all the quaint shops & restaurants & the Mission is a must stop! BUT whatever you do, get a coffee or tea at the Hidden House right off the train for a sweet break & you will not be disappointed!

The girlfriend and I decided to stop in for a cup of coffee after reading many recommendations. It's is a small little shop on the "other" side of the tracks. Right across from the San Juan Capistrano train depot. The decor is very simple but behind that simplicity was the most delicious iced latte I have ever had in my... More

If you like small batched and freshly roasted delicious coffee, this is your place...PLUS, it has great atmosphere and local flavor. But, don't be in a rush as the staff takes extra care in making your cup of Joe. Not fast service but worth the wait.

Great local coffee shop! Gourmet coffee with beans roasted in house. This shop offers excellent service with friendly staff willing to answer questions. Ambiance is rustic and cozy.

This is a nice place for visitors to go if they are tired of the coffee chains. Won't easily find it until you cross the train tracks. I recommend sitting in the shade outside. Good coffee, tea and smoothies. Not a lot to eat but good for a drink or dessert. Park in the free garage next to the movie... More
