“Great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

This place has great atmosphere. The coffee is awesome. Like to sit outside and watch everyone go by. It has a euro feel about it. Can't go wrong here.

Tried the Vienesse with soy. Yummy rich n deelish! Purchased marzipan covered in dark chocolate. Shopped all types of papyrus cards n fabulously scented lotions. A must if you want to indulge.

“Lavender Mocha!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Although I only sampled one of their offerings, I am giving Palermo five stars simply because of sheer creativity. I have never seen a lavender mocha on the menu before — have you? It was a tough call between that one, the sea salt caramel latte and the Mexican mocha on that chilly Saturday morning, but "lavender," — really? it was my opportunity to sample a floral take on two of my favorite food groups: chocolate and coffee.

I thought it was a bit sweet, but it's been awhile since I had a mocha. I did appreciate how the lavender was not overpowering. I love jasmine tea, too, but there are some I cannot drink because they are way too "perfumey."

So, yes — if your travels take you into Ventura, do be sure to check out this cool place!

“Local Coffee, little shopping boutique, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

I'm a bit of a coffee snob and this is one of my favorite coffee shops (in the world!) Try a Mexican Mocha or Sea Salt Carmel Latte. OR their gelato/sorbet is to die for, the blackberry is my favorite. Not too expensive, you are paying for some high quality, great tasting food/drinks!

“Good coffee & gelato/sorbet!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

We stopped by on a busy afternoon.... This place offers a unique place to relax and enjoy coffee/barista made beverages in unique flavors. I had a lavender chai, which was good and my hubby enjoyed the sea salt caramel latte, which he enjoyed drinking! I enjoyed the honey lavender gelato. However, the chocolate truffles they sold were not very good as they were too sweet & waxy tasting, yuck!
