“Very good sandwiches; mediocre coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Nice selection of sandwiches and other lunch choices, well prepared and fresh. Large selection of coffees, but disappointing quality for a place that calls itself a coffee house-some urns almost empty, and clearly brewed much earlier in the day. Not hot enough.

“Great coffee with great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Headlands Coffeehouse became "our place" during out stay in Fort Bragg. It's got great, laid back atmosphere (very comfortable, though it can get crowded), a really terrific staff, and truly excellent coffee - no matter which of their 16 varieties you choose. They also have great waffles, morning pastries, smoothies, teas, and many other delicious offerings. If you want to clear the fog from your head with excellent coffee, or pick up something yummy for lunch, and have a good experience doing so, be sure to visit Headlands.

“Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

This was 1 of very few places open for lunch in downtown Fort Bragg. And what a surprise it was. Great food, great atmosphere. Lots of locals. Will definitely come here again. Only miss: no soup crackers for the soup. Not everyone is from the west coast and eats their soup with sourdough. Will bring my own next time.

“Must stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Just the kind of seaside cafe you have always wanted to stop by in a foggy afternoon with your loved one.

In two words: BLACKBERRY TORT

Thank god for places like this.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Got a coffee and some food to go to fuel the drive back to the Bay Area. They made a great latte and the prepared food was delicious. I would definitely stop there again.
