I was so ready to be dismissive of this place when I asked for a dark roast and he said that we only have one roast. It turned out to be the best danged cup of coffee that I have ever had. I went back the next morning and it was coffee perfection again. As I sat at the train... More

Went with my BFF after lunch on a weekday. The place was very quiet which we liked. My latte was excellent!

Paid almost 5 dollars for a standard cup of coffee. Feel like I could have gone inland to buy a better cup at a cheaper price. Not impressed with it at all. Service was good and friendly. Wouldn't buy from them again.

Stopped in to this charming little coffee shop with my husband and kids. We ordered coffees, smoothies, frappes ...... Everyone was very happy with their drinks! We will be back.

I was lagging a bit after walking for a couple of hours at the San Diego Botanical Garden. I was intrigued by the name! I ordered a triple expression with a splash of vanilla. I was surprised to taste a smooth chocolate flavor. Not even a hint of bitterness. I will go back to try a smoothie.

I have lived in Oceanside for about 20 years. Downtown has been growing and I haven't been there recently. My daughter heard about this place on Yelp as she loves good expresso. We brought my 18 year old grandson who is a coffee connoisseur as well as future chef. My other three grandchildren came along who are ages 12-9-8. I... More

Besides loving the name, this place has great coffee drinks, smoothies, and coffee drink smoothies! A very limited fresh baked good selection too. Wonderful feel.

I'm Banana Dang, Oceanside's first craft coffee bar. I serve coffee and banana smoothies. People who want bacon and eggs hate me. Come drink rad coffee! I have WiFi. I clean up well.
