I headed straight here after whale watching. The latte was outstanding and just what I needed to cap off a wonderful experience. I had an almond croissant, also very fresh and tasty. Lovely place to sit in the sun on the wharf. They also have...More

The baristas are on their A game. The scrumptious croissants are delectable and the view is great. We went on our way in to Big Sur and again before hitting the highway back south. Sea otters playing out back, seals playing out front, cool underwater...More

First I must say that the ladies working there were courteous and helpful. However the coffee tasted weak and terrible. It was expensive too, one size (small) $2.95. If you want good coffee, go somewhere else.

They have a wide variety of teas (made in a really neat automated contraption) as well as local honey and a full coffee bar. Beautiful view over the bay and comfortable seating.

We stopped here for tea and pastry. One goes to the counter, orders what one would like, and then it is brought to you to sit at the counter or a table in the back. The organic pasties are perfectly prepared and very fresh. The...More

I agree with the reviewer who titled their piece "Pretentious and rude". It seemed to come as a surprise that we wanted an 'ordinary' cup of what they call "black tea" and that we wanted milk with it. We asked for a tray to carry...More

Cozy little hipster cafe on Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf. Nice selection of hot and cold beverages, baked goods, different flavours of local Californian honey, and their signature Belgian waffle. The small outdoor terrace over the water features some nice views when the weather is clear.
