Looking to get away from the typical big chains then this is the place. It is a bit more expensive but it tastes much better and you get little designs with milk froth on the top of your coffee. Would not get that at the other places. Ps--the banana bread is phenomenal.

Down to earth, simple coffee spot with some nice espresso drink options (hot and cold). My salty mocha was really good (also a spicy option). Limited food options.

Friendly coffee shop in downtown Oceanside with delicious variety of toasts, smoothies, coffees and teas. They have a revolving selection of baked goods that they bring in from the Creperie in Carlsbad. This was our favorite coffee shop from previous vacations in the Oceanside and Carlsbad areas. We stopped here every day on our most recent vacation to Oceanside. The... More

Incredible smoothies, good coffee, and the best toast variety (when you go, you'll know). It isn't a bargain but worth a try.

Stopped in on Oceanside trip. Love simple ideas--good coffee/toast. Son had "goob" smoothie- high praise! Ordered two pieces of nutty banana and one hot mango--all on sourdough- all were tasty! Coffee OK but who the heck wants Starbucks on vacation? Not me!

We popped in here this morning for a quick coffee to go. I got a hazelnut mocha and my husband got a mocha frappe. We both agreed that they were good tasting. The atmosphere was friendly and they offer a stamp card so you buy 10 and get one free. They are a bit pricey though.

Been a few times and I would go every morning if I could. Awesome smoothies and coffee. My husband gets the toasts often too. Nice for a quick breakfast.

This place was great! I travel a lot for work and we are always looking for great juice bars and tastiness. This place is just that for breakfast juice and an awesome piece of yummy toast! They have a good variety on the menu. I really like the vibe.

I'm Banana Dang, Oceanside's first craft coffee bar. I serve coffee and banana smoothies. People who want bacon and eggs hate me. Come drink rad coffee! I have WiFi. I clean up well.
