Good lattes

I've been a customer every beach visit for 10+ years. Good coffee, good pastries, good stop after a walk or bike ride.

This is the weirdest coffee shop I've ever been to. The atmosphere is very uninviting and the cinnamon scone was the worst pastry I've ever had.

The way this business is run is totally profit oriented with little to no respect for customers. The most this establishment has to offer is a bad attitude along with expensive mediocre coffee in a crappy plastic cup. I'd recommend the bagel shop a few doors down that also serves coffee!

What an odd experience - upon arrival you are greeted by numerous signs telling customers what they can't do - use the bathrooms unless they are buying something, mistakenly forget to order their drinks on ice, plug their laptops into the wrong socket, and so on. Coffee was decent enough, but whoever owns this place doesn't seem to get the... More

This is our third vacation year in Corolla... and so very happy to find the seasonal staff "perky" even as late at 6 pm! Chile Mocha is the bomb...

Best coffee shop near the beach, with lots of fun inventive drinks. The customer service is top notch and they really know their stuff. Cute things to purchase too.

Loved the place. They know their coffee. Extensive coffee menu. Place has a nice vibe and atmosphere. It gets crowded but they do a good job and try hard.
