“Still a good cup of (locally roasted) Joe”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This coffee place has been open for more than a half dozen years. When if first opened, it's boast was that the coffees were locally roasted and top notch. Our revisit indicated the beans were still strong and well presented. Lots of flavor, plus good service. Another Corolla surprise.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Love this local coffee shop. The beans are fresh, the chai is Oregon Chai (which is delicious), and the space is warm, inviting, and enticingly aromatic.

“Eh...”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Wow has this place gone downhill and gone touristy...my husband used to go there before we were married, and he remembers when it was just the bare bones basic coffee shop. Even up to a few years ago, it was still relatively bare bones. This year, it was way too touristy for us. Beware of the candy, by the way, last year I got a candy bar, and it was waaaaaay past its expiration date. If you are going for the coffee blends to bring home, do so, but the atmosphere is so not what it used to be...

“The perfect beach coffeehouse”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

We came here on the recommendation of a friend and were incredibly pleased. It was a stop every morning for us on our vacation. The White Lightning is their signature drink and it was my choice every time. The employees were kind and courteous and the service was very quick. They have Wi-Fi and some areas to sit down so it is a nice place to spend an hour in the morning.
