Really friendly staff makes this place great. The proximity to the Hilton Hotel was convenient as we stayed the night there. The coffee was ok and you can have your choice of various microwaved egg sandwiches. Reminds me of the sort of cafe you would find in an Aussie surf or beach town. Not fine dining or loads of choices... More

Excellent local coffee shop tucked into a small shopping center. Plenty of seating for a good conversation. Excellent hot chocolate!

Relaxed coffee shop with a small selection of pastries and pumpkin bread. I came for breakfast oatmeal and coffee $5.75. Lots of topping choices for your oatmeal and the staff recommend adding almond milk too. Side note: There's also a small eclectic library of books (

Dog friendly enclosed patio area. Trivia questions are challenging. Extensive list of blended and other coffee drinks.

A charming little spot with a surfing theme and some really good coffee and bakery items. There is a small selection of sandwiches, salads and bagels. I was greeted warmly and had good service. The coffee is good. I had a mocha with a generous amount of whipped cream--the most I've ever had on a coffee drink. It wasn't too... More

Like their Costa Rican coffee. I look for independent coffee places to avoid Starbucks, which = burned coffee to me. This place is pretty good- typical offerings but good.

Horrible. Coffee was just horrible. The staff is friendly but that is all it has going for it. The coffee was weak, the mocha was bland and the pastries were stale. I'll pass next time and won't return.

We stayed across the street last night and wanted to grab coffee before we headed out and about. Coffee was very good. Glad we stopped.

This place has my most favorite coffee in the world. Their food is pretty good too, if they give you the correct order. Had a little mix up while I was there, and sometimes it took awhile to make my breakfast item, but, its worth it. Love this place.
