Great stop to get your favorite espresso drink. Funky, comfortable and relaxed, I love their way around their espresso machine. Local favorite!

Requested a mocha with almond milk and a house cup. Most of the mochas I have had along the coast had sweetened flavored mocha and this coffee house made it perfectly! The cocoa was unsweetened and they had almond milk! A nice surprise on the Sunday afternoon was the accompanying local jazz quartet with talent. What a wonderful surprise delightful... More

Stopped here to get a cuppa coffee and warm-up and found this place to be excellent they serve wine had to live jazz band playing and wonderful place for locals and non-locals to me and enjoyed their company. The coffee is a lot better than Starbucks. They also serve food and salad so a great one stop place to stop... More

A local friend told us that this was the best coffee in town and she was right. A small family run business in town that is worth visiting.

The electric atmosphere of the old building with the coffee smells and glass pastry case makes a person want to get their coffee and stay! Being an espresso fan makes it difficult to find that perfect demitasse cup of the hot brew. Headlands Coffeehouse has my perfect cup of espresso! When I am in the area again, I will go... More

4pm and driving through Fort Bragg and all the local non-chain restaurants were closed. Couldn't bring ourselves to go to Denny's, so found Headlands Coffeehouse instead. Was skeptical at first but ultimately pleasantly surprised. Both toasted turkey panini and chicken soup were tasty.

We usually like to do business at local's places so we went there for coffee. The we had lattes which were good but nothing special. I was not impressed with the person who took our order, she wasn't rude just not friendly, maybe she was having a bad day. decided to go somewhere else the next day. The place was... More

An easy going walk in coffee and breakfast place when you order at the front. Coffee is good, bakery items too, sort of a Mendo hippie vibe.

Trendy funky looking place. Décor is catchy. Service was (as another reviewer put it) unenthusiastic. I bought a hazelnut late...meh. Far from the worst coffee I've had, but not the best either. Middle of the road. Got an egg and black bean breakfast burrito. It was large and tasty, so food is decent...at least what I got. Like a lot... More
