Had to search really hard to find this coffee place in Ocean Shores. Glad we found it though. It is across the street from the Lighthouse restaurant. Look for the large Real Estate Sign above their sign. (They told us they might switch signs eventually). They had only been open three or four weeks when we visited recently. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The coffee was excellent and the pastries were very tempting. The front has huge windows so on a sunny day it can get quite hot inside. However perfect for a cold winters morning especially with the lovely gas fire with comfy chairs gathered round it. Definitely a great place for a relaxing good cup of coffee.

Smaller, intimate establishment with a modern decor, welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. A short, focused selection of coffee, wine, home made deserts and sandwiches seem to be made from the finest ingredients with care. Prices are very reasonable considering the "tourist" nature of the town it is found in and possibly even exceptional when one considers the quality, gourmet touches.

They roast their own coffee beans and their Americano is something I look forward to. A large cup: $2.50. My son and I both had the turkey, bacon & avocado on a croissant. It was served with a small bunch of chilled, sweet red grapes and a home made quinoa (aka "keen-wa") salad mixed with cilantro, onion, pickled pepper corns and chanterelle mushrooms. The croissant was flaky and fresh and the sandwich was completed with baby spinach (I think), savory bacon, fresh avocado, deli sliced turkey, mayo, and tomatoes sprinkled with a very tasty balsamic vinegar. Everything was delicious and we left our plates spotless: $8

Homemade quiche, brownies, lemon bars, chocolate torte and more are displayed in glass cases by register. I haven't tried them all yet but the desserts should definitely please even the most discriminating sweet tooth.

As new as this establishment is I think I can safely say it has become one of my favorites in this decidedly touristy town awash with your typical clam chowder and fish and chip spots. Parking and seating is limited so if you get the chance to stop in here, take it!

Now this is a gem of a find. This indeed not your typical beach coffee house experience.
The coffee is ground here and delicious. Had a fresh baked cinnamon roll and my wife a blueberry muffin. Both of us smiled with delight as we enjoyed wonderful pastry.
The seating was very comfortable with couches available around the fireplace.
Live entertainment on Saturday night, with beer and wine available as well. The staff is warm and gracious, just simply making being there a special experience.
We will be back and often!!!!!

Just when we thought that Ocean Beach had seen far better days, we found this wonderful coffee/snack place. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, the Croissants gave us the best breakfast ever (everything home cooked) and the coffee made perfectly. The atmosphere was so different from the scruffy fast food restaurants/pubs which get Trip Advisors top marks in Ocean Shores: at last somewhere with a bit of class yet good value for money.
The use of iPads to take credit cards and provide clear easy-to-read printed receipts confirmed we had at last stepped into the 21st century from the Pat Boone glory days of the 1950's!!
A place for a beautiful healthy snack, comfortable seats (inside or out) and lovely people. Wish we had found this earlier in our stay.
