“Great for coffee and conversation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Friends and I went on a weekday morning for coffee and conversation. The interior is small and we were a bit cramped waiting for our lattes but the staff was upbeat and friendly. We chose to have our beverages out back on the patio. There are a few tables out front on the sidewalk. One friend had a muffin that she enjoyed. Overall we found this place to be a friendly, casual setting with lots of locals coming and going. We all agreed we would like to return in the future.

“delicious!”

Great coffee and ice cream. Open super early in the morning so you can start your day off with a great cup of coffee.

“TastyTreats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Don't let the lack of enthusiasm from the employees persuade you into just ordering a drink or keep you from taking your time to decide on what to try. However, you can't go wrong with the homemade cookies or the mini cinnamon rolls to accompany your favorite coffee or tea drink!

“Best Drink I've Had In A Long Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I love espresso and find in my extensive travels it is hard to find someone who knows how to pull the perfect shot. The young woman who works there is a pro and what an unusual and exuberant personality she has. A transplant from Berkley, Cayucos Beach is lucky to have her. There are rooms for rent above the shop and you can see the occupants are thrilled to be greeted by her in the morning with just the right cup of caffeine.

“Good Coffee and a Nice Morning Retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Good coffee and very nice baristas. The food is not the greatest and takes a long time to prepare (although most of it is pre-made and just needs to be heated up), but if you're looking for a great cup of coffee on a chilly morning, then this place is perfect!
