It serves Peet's Coffee & Tea but doesn't have all of the pastry selections that a typical Peet's does. Very pretty location & you can eat outside near the water. I don't like a heavy breakfast so this was perfect. It also helped save money for lunch and dinner.

My husband and our son love Peet's coffee and this cafe has it. Cute location and good pastries, too.

Good location, service a little slack coffee tasted good but more foam than coffee. Pastry nothing special.

I visited the Cafe La Strada several times during my stay in Monterey as it was in the hotel. The nonfat chai latte was to die for. I had it made by four different people easily on the trip and they were all excellent, especially when you consider there is always slight variation in prepared drinks. The croissants are excellent as well. Even more importantly, you get service with a smile. I would definitely visit again and recommend to friends!

We waited in line for about 10 minutes with only three people ahead of us. The service was very slow and was only two people working the front. We gave up and left.
