San Juan Capistrano is the cutest town and it is only fitting to have the hippest coffee shop! The coffee is good, the price is typical, and the atmosphere is somewhere between workers too cool and patrons of families, hipsters, and everything in between. When you want coffee in SJC, this is the place to get it. If you want... More

As stated, this place is a bit hidden which adds to its attraction. Coffee (latte + 4 extra shots) was not all that outstanding, but the place offers great ambience, a convenient location to the train station, and a fair price. Am likely to visit again.

The coffee is great and the pastries are made in house and are delicious. The coffee shop itself is awesome. Perfect atmosphere to enjoy a book or people watch.

Cute little coffee house with a great selection of coffee and pastries. I had the double drop with caramel flavoring. I set out side on the patio it was very relaxing.

We were looking for a place to stop for coffee in SJC, and found this place by keying it into our GPS. It is indeed "hidden" in a little strip mall. Coffee was great as was the view out the huge windows.

My kids friends love this place. It is very nice, but not amazing. Good cookies, pastries. Very nice atmosphere though. Nice place to chill for sure.

I try to stop in here whenever I am in SJC. It is a lovely old building on the opposite side of the railroad tracks from the station. The coffee is roasted in house and the quality is top notch. Service could be better, but definitely forego Starbucks and stop here when you are in SJC.

Very mellow coffee shop across the tracks from the train station. Seating inside and out. This place has a great feel and good coffee. Stop in, treat yourself and chill out.

What a nice place to have an espresso outside on the wooden deck under a gorgeous camellia tree. Perfect place for a break if you're visiting the mission or if you are coming or going on the train -- it's right next to the station.

In America I really struggle to find good coffee as most is just black brewed coffee. In Australia where I am living there coffee is great, where true coffee machines are used to create a beautiful tasting coffee. I am also a certified barista in Australia so I now what is a good coffee and what is not. Hidden House... More
