“Bacon Strips!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great coffee and bacon strips served in cones. Bacon and Cheddar scone served with a Honey Butter were also really good.
Don't overlook this place if you're in Pacific Grove, Ca

“A GREAT JEWEL IN DOWNTOWN PACIFIC GROVE”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This place is raising the bar for Pacific Grove and we do have some really great restaurants. Open in the AM for great coffee and rolls and then the wine bar opens at 4pm. The dinners are delicious and Tami and her team treat you like family. A great place for the locals and for the tourists to get that really home town feeling.

“Good vood, very casual.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Very laid back and casual but great food and some decent beers and wines available. Friendly staff. Soft live music out front and located in the old downtown. Overall a good choice for anyone. Well-behaved kids would work but its not a "family" type place from what I saw.

“Great place to recharge your batteries”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Crema opened last year in a small Victorian house on the main drag of Pacific Grove. The coffee, teas and wines, snacks and service are all good, and the prices reasonable. What makes Crema so wonderful, however, is the use of the small, interestingly decorated upstairs rooms as seating areas. Rather than one large public space, the rooms feel cozy and personal, encouraging conversation and relaxation.
A great place to snack, have a cup, and recharge.

“Went back again and again”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I found this place on a recent trip tp Pacific Grove. We were out looking to grab coffee and the coffee is outstanding. They they started bringing out food. They mentioned they had bacon..who doesn't? But my boyfriend loves bacon so he bought some. It was thick cut Applewood bacon. Yum. They they brought out homemade bacon and chedder biscuits, then prime rib burritos. We ended up makingit breakfast and couldnt be more pleased. So pleased in fact that we went back for coffee that afternoon and coffee and breakfast again the next morning. It is a simple operation. Its a coffee and wine bar. Lots of seating including an area upstairs. the have a simple menu of freshly made items that seems to vary a little. The employees are incredibly nice and helpful and it certainly didnt hurt their review when I left my purse on a chair one visit, only to return 45 mins later and the girl working had put it in the back andn held it for me. But this place could stand on it's own without all of the honesty and kindness. It my new favorite place for coffee and breakfast. Now I need to go and try out the wine.
