Great coffee, friendly service, local hang out and popular with the tourists. Yummy snacks, good priced and friendly service. They have expanded so more room to hang out . Open early which is a plus!

“Old school mocha”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Ahh...so missed the "old school" espresso drinks of the early 90s - here you can find the decidely non-Starbucks flavor! Locals! Not much seating but upstairs will open soon or you can walk around quaint downtown with your java. Baked goods were phenomenal.

“Good coffee”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

We like the fact that they grind their own coffee and after the nightmarish stuff at the hotel, it was a very pleasant experience to have something good. The ham and cheese quiche made a good breakfast on the run.

“Coffee and local color”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

If you want Starbucks, you'll need to keep going - 100+ miles north and probably 25 miles or more south. But for folks who can make it on authentic brew made fresh by regular people who don't have aprons or fancy titles, this place will do fine. They've got several brews to choose from and a small but efficient selection of pastries and cookies - if you want more than just coffee. There are outdoor tables because inside theres hardly room to change your mind. Arrive early you'll get your brew on with a bit of local flavor. The townsfolk seem to congregate here and it's nice to witness real community. You might even get the inside scoop on the most recent city council meeting or real estate prices. It's coffee you can count on. Insiders tip: there's no public bathrooms here but there are some just a block away. Ask for directions when you get your change.

“Our Preferred coffee house in Cambria”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

We travel a lot and one thing you learn early on is that there is some spectacularly bad coffee on the road. When you find a place with delicious non-burned flavorful coffee it stands out. Several years ago we tried Cambria Coffee on one of our trips and ever since we have stopped in for coffee whenever we are in the area. The staff is friendly and attentive,even when they are busy which is often. Pat always has a smile and a friendly word. They also have fantastic tea if coffee isn't you thing. It's also a well loved gathering spot for the locals who congregate on the little patio in the mornings to catch up, sip coffee and enjoy the day. I highly recommend this place
