Best Coffee in Truckee

Truly the best cup of coffee in town. The baristas know their craft and make lovely, delicious drinks.

Not a bad spot if you wanna be scene by everyone. The turn over of employee's is big and the owner cannot get it together to stock something, (organic vanilla almond, coconut or organic vanilla soy milk) other than cow milk for those who of us who are lactose intolerant. I've been requesting that for a long time now and... More

My husband is a mad coffee snob and this was our first trip to the US. We did a road trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco via Reno and we stopped in Truckee on our way through to Calistoga. The young man who served us seemed to know a bit about flat whites so had obviously served some Aussies... More

So the coffee is the best thing about this place unless you are a gluten-free type and in that case you will probably appreciate the bakery. Small but decent selection of goodies, some sweet some savory. My gripes are that the service is very slow and the baked goods aren't that tasty and overly sweet. Hoping these gripes get fixed...

Very cool atmosphere and some of the best coffee I've had. I tried the Lavendar Tea Latte the other day and it's crazy good. I've also had the spinach and feta cheese croissant and a giant chocolate chip cookies - I know, I know.....excellent! Plus, there's another branch on Donner Pass Road (near the furthest west entrance to I80 (little... More

This place was a great little find in the heart of a cool little town with an interesting name. The coffee is really good and there's a friendly, local vibe. I liked it so much that I made two trips in 2 hours and I'm not even a regular coffee drinker. Another nice bonus was that compared to coffee shops... More

Coffeebar coffee is always excellent. Great art - always changing. Vegan muffins are most excellent!

we eventually worked out that there are two CoffeeBars, one in town, one out past Safeway. The one out of town has Lemon Ricotta cookies that are the new love of my husband's life. I tried to leave town without bulk buying them, and after negotiation we turned the car around and went back for them. We also had the... More

We stopped by here with our family. Nice location and unusual decor. Also had a nice seating area outside. The coffee and pastries were good as well. I would stop here again. Good service too

I came here to have a quick business meeting and maybe some lunch. I had the Veggie Crepe which was delicious. I didn't have any coffee since it was mid-day, but I appreciated that so many locals were hanging out and enjoying the patio and nice background music. Very nice casual lunch hangout. (Free WiFi)
