and marionberry scones. Could not have been a more welcoming place for our late October (rainy) afternoons in Pacific. Restrooms shared with the Inn in the same building, even the folks there were warm, Friendly and conversational. I had to buy a mug.

This coffee shop is what you'd hope a Starbucks would be like (and never is). Coffee was great, food was tasty & the service made me wish this was my neighborhood coffee shop. Thanks for another great experience in your café (the last was 6 years ago). We'll be back!

We enjoyed the bread at Pelican so much, our waitress recommended we go to Stimulus to pick up a loaf of it (I guess they provide the bread to Pelican?). The bread was delicious and I highly recommend it, however I cannot speak for the coffee as we did not have any.

Barista made coffee just like it was ordered. My husband likes it extra hot and most Barista's try to convince him that it scalds the milk.. Whether it does or not, that is how he likes it.. This one made it perfect.. The coffee was excellent and the serve was just as good.

The cafe is fine and the coffee is good. The staff are friendly. I had a really tasty breakfast quiche. Problem is that it was so slow. They were busy so it's to be expected, to an extent, but our food was ready before our coffees and we ended up eating before we even had anything to drink. Don't hesitate... More

I liked the sea salt mocha so much I went back three days in a row for the same drink! No caramel, just sea salt and mocha. Yummy! We also enjoyed the gluten free Marionberry coffee cake and a non gluten free raspberry lemon muffin. All very, very good. This is one of the few spots in Pacific City that... More

We stopped for coffee, not expecting gluten free treats and were happily surprised at the Marionberry cake. Wow! And my almond milk latte wad just as good. We were happy to come back for another treat the next day! Free wifi, free smiles and a nice atmosphere. Thanks Stimulus!
