I went in there 6 months ago and made a note to come back next time I was in SLO. Although I was served well and the food was pretty good the first time, the second makes me wonder about consistency. I had the breakfast burrito and the espresso eggs on two separate occasions. I have also had a chai,... More

They also have entertainment on certain nights of the week. Good coffee, nice place. The garden is my favorite.

I tend to be a bit of a coffee snob and rarely drink the house brew from coffee shops, but Linnaea's makes the cut, they also have fantastic latte's and a delightful courtyard in the back, too cute.

Nice coffee shop but the wait to be served can be long. Coffee is good but the best reason to come here is the very charming patio courtyard out back. Beautiful plants and greenery everywhere and a peaceful place to truly enjoy a cup of coffee.

Hipster crowd and atmosphere; tattoos, purple hair, gluten free fare, Mac air books, dreads, beards, it's all represented there. Incredibly pretty and charming back patio, go in the evening when the string lights are twinkling and there's not much of a crowd. The pastries were good and our tea and coffee was done right.

My little guy and I had a coffee date this morning and we throughly enjoyed the patio. I was surprised at the amount of other children there. My iced coffee was delicious and I can't wait to go back with my husband and try some of the delicious looking pastries and breakfast items! Look for the "Cafe" sign on Garden... More

Went for the first time. Coffee and chai was DELICIOUS but the breakfast burrito was terrible. Who puts canned black olives in a breakfast burrito? I recommend getting coffee or chai and a muffin or something, avoid the major breakfast options. The backyard setting is lovely.

Ok, ok, so I lived in SLO for many years, and I can tell you, we go to Linnea's every time we're back in town. They have the best coffee in town--hands down! Plus the atmosphere is that of a REAL coffee house. It's in a quaint little spot on a side street downtown and it has the cutest garden... More

Linnaea's has been a favorite in San Luis Obispo for a long time, and for good reason. The coffee is great, they have a wonderful selection of fresh daily baked goodies, including vegan choices, and it's a mellow place to hang out. They have wi-fi, a secluded garden patio and a monthly art exhibit.
