Helpful staff, great coffee, nice snacks - especially for a quick breakfast. Try their coffee of the week.

Unusual for Oregon coast--local roast coffee shop steps from the beach. Five Rivers Coffee Roasters served here, and in the lobby of the hotel in the same building. Fogcutter blend was great. Refill for 50 cents was nice. Since this place is so busy, I am not sure there is a compelling reason to wrap pastries like scones and muffines... More

I loved the food there - they get most of their bakery items from the Pelican - so you know it is good! They also post the sunrise and sunset times along with the tide times for you so there is no guessing!

Lady who was taking my order was rude and gave me a huge attitude after not tipping. Coffee is not great as well.

Loved their macchiato. In winter it is a quick in and out, but we are told this place is so popular in summer that the queue runs outside!

The coffee is great. Altho the day I visited there was not enough help. The poor gal that was working was stressed out and frustrated, which I don't blame her at all. Those that do the scheduling need to realize this place is always going to busy and leaving one person to wait on 16 people is complete asinine.
