Independent, lots of good goodies, unique foreign fair traded coffees, not Starbucks, and right downtown on Alvarado where you need it for a quick caffeine pickup.

I had coffee and breakfast at Plumes for the 3 mornings we were in Monterey. Coffee was good and plenty of variety for me for food. It was nice to just hang out and read the paper while drinking coffee while my family slept in. Staff was very friendly to me.

Plume's is conveniently located just around the corner from the Monterey Marriott in downtown. They offer a quaint atmosphere with warm, friendly service and their offerings included great pastries and sandwiches. But, highest on my list was the single origin pour over selection. I got the Guatemalan - twice - and loved it. You just can't beat the coffee here and no drip machine prepared cup is going to compare.

So, service, atmosphere, convenience and most of all fantastic coffee make this a don't miss.

We liked it here a lot. It's in a good location if you're on your way to do other things in Monterey near the wharf. The staff were friendly and the decor is interesting. It serves things like granola, yoghurt, muffins and coffee etc so there's plenty to choose from. There were a lot of locals in there which I always think is a good sign.
