“Fast, friendly, hip and somewhat unique.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Just different than Sbucks...more local, deeper, richer blend, fast drive thru. This is right on the main drag thru downtown Dana Point.

“Best coffee house in southern California”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We stumbled onto this little coffee house on our way to Starbucks (only half a block away). Noticed the line up of cars at the drive through and thought we would give it a try as we love to support local businesses when we travel. Well, we fell in love...not only did we really like the coffee but really liked the ambience....and the great service It Is set up much like an old style library with lots of a wall of books which are accessible for a read, a small fireplace and several tables. Definitely will come back on our next trip to DP.

“Great Coffee”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

This is a small independent operation competing the corporate coffee down the street. In the winter time you can cozy up to the fireplace, enjoy the excellent WiFi, and sip your favorites. Their bakery selection is sufficient and you can pull a book off the shelve to read if you wish.

“The only real coffee house in DP”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Let me say this: Wife is a coffee addict. I don't drink it.

This place is a great hang. Warm and cozy, totally the opposite of S-bucks. They have all kinds of drinks not just coffee. Lots of tasty pastry treats. This is a very good place to just chill.

“The only place for coffee in Dana Point”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

As a fan of small business in the community this is my choice for the morning latte and breakfast sandwich as well as the afternoon latte and lunch sandwich. A great place to swing through. I really enjoy the drive through staff. Fun folks with great attitudes. Inside is equally inviting. Almost always a crowd so getting a seat by the fireplace is a bit of a task but a great welcoming place.
